The Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) represents a major overhaul to the BIS regulations defining how much capital banks need to cover their market risk exposure.
The changes don’t just affect banks – the impact of FRTB will filter through to all users of financial products offered or traded by banks – in other words, to everyone.
ACF Academy’s intensive two-day FRTB Demystified course provides a unique insight into the detailed workings of the FRTB, and navigates participants through the alphabet-soup of concepts from A-IRB to VaR and VM.
Tracing the evolution of market-risk measurement from the 1996 Market Risk Amendment through to the implementation of the FRTB starting in 2023, the program provides an in-depth examination of the detailed workings of both the Standardized Approach and the Internal Models Approach, and gives participants the opportunity to explore the practical implementation of each method through extensive hands-on workshops and case studies.
