Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB): Now that the ink is dry(ing)...
Following the publication of the final text for FRTB in January 2016, PRMIA undertakes the third event in this series and presents an opportunity to hear from the Bank of England, a senior banking representative and also ISDA about the practical implementation of the rules  just after the April Basel Trading Book Working Group(TBG)  discussions with banks. 
Hear directly from the regulator on how they foresee the implementation of the minimum capital requirements for market risk progressing, what activities must be undertaken by banks and by when ahead of the planned 2019 implementation date and also how the industry is likely to respond. In addition discussion will reflect what remains to be settled and any areas of pitfalls for banks in the light of cumulative regulation and accounting rules.

PRMIA and GFT invite you to participate and ask questions during the interactive Q&A session after the presentations, then network with the speakers and fellow risk professionals over refreshments.
