Fundamental Review of the Trading Book by Christian Schmaltz

Fundamental Review of the Trading Book by Christian Schmaltz

Course Running Time: 15 Hours


Professionals - Understand the mechanics and implementation challenges of the new regulatory framework for market risk (Fundamental Review of the Trading Book). Naturally, it targets all those that are new to this topic (traders, risk managers, programmers, consultants) and who need to quickly catch-up with those colleagues that are already experts in FRTB.

Regulators – We pay particular attention to the implementation and its challenges. For regulators to better understand the implementation challenges, the course links conceptual requirements to implementation consequences.

Academics/students – Students can substantially improve their recruiting chances if they are knowledgeable in this important and current topic. Banks are currently looking for talents who want to join banks on their FRTB – journey.

Christian Schmaltz: Assistant Professor for Banking, AARHUS UNIVERSITY

 

Christian holds a position as assistant professor for Finance at Aarhus School of Business (ASB) and is affiliated to the Aspect Advisory Group. Christian earned his PhD with a ‘Quantitative Liquidity Model for Banks’. Subsequently, he worked for risk management consultancies in Germany and United Kingdom. His project experience spans from liquidity to market risk and from individual to group models. Back in academia, his research interest is naturally centred around financial institutions with a focus on their management and regulation. Furthermore, Christian is a successful trainer for risk management covering basic levels up to advanced levels in quantitative methods, regulation and overall bank management.

Prerequisites

There are not academic prerequisites for this course. It would be however helpful, if participants have some knowledge on today’s market risk regulation. Furthermore, participants should know the concept of Value-at-Risk and its current application for risk measurement.


Lecture 1: 

Topic: Overview, FRTB Building Blocks, Computation requirements

  • Overview:
    Framing: Compute market risk RWA under Pillar 1
    Motivation: Why a  new market risk framework
    Components: Trading book boundary, Internal hedges, Regulatory trading desks
    In a nutshell: Main changes w.r.t. current framework
  • FRTB Building Blocks:
    Standardised vs. internal model
  • Computation requirements:
    Per desk
    Per group
  • Governance structure: who implements, who maintains, wo reports and who manages?
  • Comparison Basel FRTB vs. European (CRR2-)FRTB
