About this paper
Regulatory agencies in several jurisdictions have sought to augment regulatory requirements put forth by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) following the financial crisis by mandating that banks define a forward-looking capital plan that incorporates stress scenarios. The new regulations may force banks to redesign their risk modeling, data infrastructure and technology components, as well as more closely integrate their risk and finance departments – which historically have been managed separately. This white paper discusses how banks can successfully cope with the growing regulatory burden by adopting solutions that not only meet current regulatory requirements, but are also flexible enough to address future requirements. The paper also explains how banks that demonstrate a better ability to measure and manage risk can derive business benefits from these regulations and emerge as winners.
