Fundamental Review of the Trading Book Forum

We are pleased to be a sponsor of the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book Forum on November 19th in London.

Pushpak Tripathi, Senior Manager, will represent Zanders at the forum. Pushpak is one of our specialists on regulatory topics such as FRTB, CCAR and IRRBB and many other market and credit risk topics. He will speak at the forum about ‘FRTB – An optimised approach for capital charge estimation’.

The fundamental review of the trading book has historically been a challenge for financial institutions. The proposal sets out to largely overhaul industry practice and set new guidelines. However the path to implementation has thus far been uncertain. The FRTB project has experienced several delays and set-backs, as a result the final implementation date is currently scheduled for 2022. By the end of the year we should have received the vitally important final standard. In the calm before the storm the industry has the opportunity to ready itself and prepare for upcoming changes. Therefore this phase of planning is exceptionally important as many professional prepare for the journey ahead.

We will be exploring FRTB timelines and implementation goals ahead of the final rule at our highly anticipated FRTB Forum, 19th November, London.

Please contact Pushpak Tripathi for more information.
