About This Course

In this course (7 of 11), learn about the significant challenges to calculating and managing risk using the IMA approach. The way banks manage and quantify these attributes will determine how successful they will be in implementing IMA desks.
 
“P&L Attribution Test” covers the toughest challenge for the internal models approach. The P&L attribution test is designed to continually evaluate the extent to which a bank’s internal models capture risk. This class describes the approaches as well as the dos and don’ts for managing P&L attribution test frameworks.

“Managing Non-Modellable Risk Factors (NMRFs)” covers what will likely be the source of significant uncertainty associated with capital charges within the IMA approach. This class will describe the uncertainties and their mitigating approaches.

The relationship between risk sensitivity granularity, NMRF, and P&L Attribution will be critical to understand and to optimize. We uncover how to calibrate the granularity of risk sensitivities in order to establish the best balance between minimal NMRF and maximum chance of P&L test passage.
