Right price for risk

Alyson Bailey-Flynn.

Under Basel III and FRTB, banks are facing increased capital and funding costs, which is changing how traders make decisions on who to trade with and how to price trade. With IBM, the front office can do more business with a more efficient use of limits and a more accurate pricing of risks.

  • Traders can accurately calculate pre-deal incremental exposures, default and CVA capital, with virtually no compromise in trade execution time
  • Exposures are based on full multi-step Monte Carlo simulations that fully account for netting and collateral
