FRTB: delivering on the promise of data-driven insights
With two years left to implement FRTB, banks of various sizes are finding the task difficult for very different reasons. A Chartis Research and IBM survey was undertaken this summer revealed the three primary barriers to implementing effective solutions for FRTB aggregation and reporting are as follows:
- Technology and infrastructure constraints
- Lack of clarity on requirements
- Lack of available data
- Looking into the survey results, it’s clear that whatever challenges the banks are facing they are determined to move ahead in embracing the various tenets of FRTB, not only for the inherent regulatory implications but also for the competitive advantage banks can gain through robust solutions and informed strategies.
