Legislative initiative: Capital Requirements Directive V (CRD V)

JWG summarized regulatory 2021 reporting efforts and explained how there are both prudential/statistical ‘top down’ or more aggregated reporting (e.g., Risk, ESG) with the ‘bottom up’ more transactional data collection (e.g., EMIR, MiFID, CSDR). The RRDS agenda will seek to share lessons learnt across both types of regulatory reporting innovations this year. Though concepts have been proven and studies generally align, without a more concrete description of the future risk information system which extends today’s notion of ‘data’ to include ‘language’ regulatory data efforts will continue to cost tens of billions while failing to achieve their policy objectives.

The group discussed recent papers from the Bank of England, BIS and JWG’s Global Derivatives Digital Regulatory Reporting (DRR) programme and the business case for getting involved in these efforts. The group also reviewed  JWG’s proposed Regulatory Reporting & Data SIG (RRDS) 2021 plans to explore the feasibility of ‘top down’ aggregated reporting (e.g., Risk,


It has been nearly four years since the implementation of CRR/CRD IV which cover prudential rules for banks, building societies and investment firms with the main aim of reducing the likelihood that these financial institutions will become insolvent.  To an extent, this reflects the Basel III rules on capital measurement and capital standards which is


The UK’s departure from the European Union will be a seismic event for the financial sector, requiring extensive planning and transitioning from all corners of the industry.  To implement all of the necessary changes in time, many assumptions will need to be made.  In order to make this more efficient and lower the substantial costs


The Global Financial Markets Association (GFMA), a banking lobby, has warned regulators that new rules must be closely examined to assess their impact on the global financial markets. This comes as a result of the proposed changes to capital requirements that the Basel Committee is currently implementing. These changes to capital requirements could have a


JWG analysis. With 40+ regulations covering 500+ KYC data requirements due to be implemented over the next 3 years, meeting the requirements poses significant challenges to all firms in the market, not least client outreach, data management and multiple, iterative, implementation dates.  Combined with record fines for AML failures, and new personal liability for senior


Out of the shadows, into the rulebooks?

Shadow banking could soon force infrastructure upgrades and additional business costs– will the industry find ways to ease the pain? As repos, securities and, potentially, CCPs become part of the transparency agenda via new shadow banking regulation, this could result in infrastructure upgrades and increased business costs looking set to be on their way in


2013: A very new year

Five years after the crisis started, real change is finally in store. Who is on the naughty and nice lists? In 2012, the industry saw a flurry of financial sector reforms. With over 140,000 pages of regulation produced over the past twenty four months, an ambitious but often discordant global regulatory framework has developed, leaving
