TABB Group and FINCAD Webinar to Address Intraday Risk Measurement in a Market of Complexity and Regulatory Uncertainty
By Moses To | June 14, 2012

Vancouver, Dublin, New York - June 14, 2012

FINCAD, the market leader for innovative derivatives solutions, and TABB Group are hosting an informational webinar titled, Risk Measurement On-demand: Complexity, Volatility and Regulatory Uncertainty, on June 20, 2012 at 11:00 EDT / 08:00 PDT.

The webinar will discuss the results of the latest TABB research report. According to this industry report, calculating complex exposures on-demand is not only becoming a regulatory requirement but a more potent competitive differentiator. Financial institutions now need risk management tools for the new normal. The webinar will also provide an overview of the necessary technology to analyze the payoff structure, financing costs and liquidity risks of complex instruments under various scenarios.

The webinar will cover:

  • What are the new capital and collateral charges likely to be imposed
  • What kind of timeline are we looking at
  • What financial and operational risks are regulators going to focus on
  • What infrastructure is required to manage these risk and reporting requirements
  • What are the design considerations necessary within an analytics software platform
  • How to calculate risk on positions and portfolios efficiently and on-demand
  • How to set up a risk system that will evolve with changing instruments and conventions

"With a seismic shift in market risk, lower market liquidity and increasing regulatory imperatives such as Basel III, Dodd Frank and Solvency II, it is no surprise that nearly 65% of sell-side and 45% buy-side professionals now require on-demand risk management,"* said Bob Park, FINCAD President and CEO. "Financial professionals need to stay abreast of the latest industry changes and equip themselves with the right tools to address market demands."

"In our current state of economic and regulatory uncertainty, financial institutions need to make sure that their risk calculation technologies can adapt to the inevitability of unexpected events," said Adam Sussman, Partner and Research Director, TABB Group.
