Webinar "Impact of Capital Rules on Risk Rating Systems"

The rapidly evolving bank regulatory environment – particularly Basel II and Basel III capital requirements and stress testing – and ongoing pressure to strengthen internal controls are placing new and costly burdens on credit risk modeling. Banks that gained experience with the Internal Ratings-Based (IRB) approach for calculating capital requirements must build flexibility into their risk rating systems to respond quickly to changes in market conditions and regulations.

This webinar will provide an overview of the IRB approach and current market trends and look ahead to new regulations and what they will demand of risk rating platforms. The presentation will include a case study of a top-tier U.S. bank’s implementation of a dual risk rating system as well as emerging best practices in the context of regulatory expectations around model deployment.
