Implementing FRTB in a Complex Financial Landscape

Today banks are faced with embracing new technology and new data feeds to meet FRTB compliance obligations. Bruno Castor, Head of Market Risk at Murex and Jon Anderson, Editor, discuss how CTOs should approach the implementation challenges of the forthcoming regulation.

The convergence of risk and trading is the spirit of FRTB and it can be done with a single enterprise platform that manages both front and risk on the same instance, or with multiple platforms for different functions. Focusing first on the impact of selecting the IMA vs. the RSA, this interview explores both the single- and multi-platform approaches and then considers the pros and cons of each for CTOs. Looking forward, FRTB could even become a catalyst for IT transformation as banks adapt their infrastructure in order to optimize performance and lower TCO.
