Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, 2012/12/19 - CRISIL Global Research & Analytics (GR&A), the world’s largest and top-ranked provider of high-end research and analytics services, was a co-sponsor to the 18th annual Risk USA conference. The event was held recently in New York - CRISIL.com.
The conference was attended by a wide cross section of the global financial industry including retail, commercial and investment banks, insurance companies, and asset management firms. This initiative by CRISIL GR&A, a leader in the risk and analytics space, represents its continued commitment towards providing a platform for exchanging ideas, discussing issues and debating the rapidly changing business environment faced by the risk management industry.
Gurpreet Chhatwal, Senior Director and Global Head, Risk and Analytics, CRISIL GR&A, presided over the stream titled “Economic capital, financial regulations and risk aggregation”. The sessions under his moderation addressed the challenges that confront financial institutions today due to the combination of increased regulatory oversight and higher capital requirements.
“The far-reaching changes in the regulatory and capital regimes are leading to gradual but fundamental change in the business models of banks and other firms in the financial industry. Regulators are demanding a more robust and analytical approach towards the measurement and modeling of risk and capital buffers. The firms that recognise this as an opportunity to retool and streamline their models and processes will be able to ride out this phase and emerge stronger” says Gurpreet Chhatwal.
Some of the latest developments and innovations discussed in the conference included new approaches to counterparty credit risk, modeling liquidity risk and operational risk, the impact of Swap Data Repositories and Swap Executions Facilities on the OTC swaps market, and the future of risk management.
