RBC25 - Boundary between the banking book and the trading bookThere is often confusion about the different nature of the Interest Rate Risk IRR in the banking book versus the trading book and what needs to be measured. The trading book refers to assets held by a bank that are available for sale and hence regularly traded. Banks are not required to mark these to market. They are usually held at historical cost. As such, this provides an opportunity for regulatory arbitrage. However, such a model is not capable of portraying the risks accurately and is not a good basis for holding capital. In IRRBB, the shift in interest rates is not necessarily the main driver of risk; unexpected customer behavior and the treatment of Non-Maturing Assets NMA can also have a significant influence on interest income.

In my current role, I look after important consulting engagements for a number of strategic clients cutting across various risk and regulatory issues. However, given my prior background I tend to specially focus on regulations in Market Risk and Stress Testing projects. The clients I work with range from large global banks with substantial multi-asset class exposures and sizeable trading portfolios, to more localized banks with limited trading exposure. Before I got into Risk, which as is the case for many of us, happened only post-crisis, I was involved on the derivatives trading support side of the business, managing projects in various areas including structuring, product control, and derivatives technology. We are looking forward to you presenting at the Risk EMEA Summit where you will be focusing on the trading book and banking book.
