FRTB: Cloud to Cloud

In this report, authored by Alveo and Vector Risk, we discuss resolving the challenges of data intensity and computational complexity.

Paper Highlights

  • FRTB poses significant challenges and a high cost for banks to implement if they use traditional approaches to on-prem market data infrastructure and risk calculations
  • FRTB’s calculation and data intensity demands put strain on existing data and risk infrastructure
  • Technological advances mean the traditional border between Basel’s Standardized Approach (“SA”) and Internal Model Approach (“IMA”) banks will blur – putting IMA capabilities within reach of smaller banks
  • Vector Risk and Alveo provide best of breed, cloud-based risk calculation and market data integration solutions that; reduce the onboarding time and allow faster and cheaper processing for FRTB IMA calculations and data requirements.
  • Using cloud-based technology to futureproof market risk infrastructure reduces the cost of (inevitable) future change with a predictable cost base
