Event | Unified Risk Management Environments: The implications of regulations like FRTB, CAT and MiFID II and how firms are solving the massive scale data challenges

25th January 2018, Thursday

8:30am - 11:00am

The Bryant Park Hotel
40 W. 40th Street, NY, NY 10018

There is a movement within Capital markets firms to establish cross-asset class, ‘unified’ environments for regulatory reporting and risk management. These initiatives address the different needs created by regulations for reporting (particularly MiFID II and CAT) and risk management (e.g. FRTB) but open up new opportunities for firms to better manage business-wide risk.

Implementation of these environments faces two big challenges in the integration of diverse asset-class data sets and the architecture of platforms to cope with the massive scale of data that is required.

Citihub Consulting invites you to attend this peer-only round table discussion where we will be discussing these topics:

  • The business opportunities for unified risk management

The discussion will cover both the regulatory requirements and internal business drivers for unified reporting and for cross-asset risk calculation and results services

  • Data integration challenges for cross-asset class risk management

Joining and rationalizing data across asset-classes presents big challenges. The topics to be discussed will include the overall feasibility of a single calculation platform versus the convergence of models, analytics, definitions, market data etc.

  • Platform challenges for massive scale risk environments

Initiatives like MiFID II reporting and CCAR are already stretching the boundaries of internal technical capabilities and even some external cloud services. FRTB is projected to take those challenges to another level. In this session, we will discuss the anticipated scale of challenge and discuss technical solutions to cope with big fast data and massive scale data archives both internally and where it is appropriate to leverage hybrid cloud services.
Held under the Chatham House Rule, this will be your opportunity to learn and share experiences with your peers from leading financial services firms.
