FRTB and Credit & Counterparty Risk

FRTB and Credit & Counterparty Risk
PRMIA Hong Kong invites you to join us for a virtual event covering two timely topics in risk, FRTB and Credit & Counterparty Risk.

Panel Discussion 1:
FRTB Implementation in Asia

While the COVID crisis caused the Basel Committee to delay the go-live date for the Basel III regime and its market risk component, FRTB, by a year, the added time comes with higher expectations for banks' implementation of the new rules. With the extra year now coming to a close, we will discuss key remaining issues for FRTB implementation in Asia, covering both regional and global challenges arising from this significant change in market risk capital rules.

Panel Discussion 2:
Why Is Credit Risk More Important Now?

The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered the steepest global slump on record and caused a seismic shift in the economy and unprecedented increases in credit uncertainty and impairment. While the stimulus-fueled rally in credit markets since March has helped borrowers stay afloat during the coronavirus crisis, an increase in corporate debt poses various risks. Join our subject matter experts to learn how you can identify, assess, monitor, and control credit risks.
