Under new Basel rules, we are moving from the world of risk modelling to the world of real-time risk reporting. The Fundamental Review of the Trading Book, which has to be implemented by January 2022, requires significant upgrading of trading and risk systems and key challenge is data for testing Murex and other platforms. In particular, firms require data for testing their calculations for Credit Value Adjustments (CVAs) - measurements of the changing risks produced by movements in market and credit positions. This seminar will focus on how firms are meeting the challenge, and how they can create multiple, agile, repeatable and secure data environments that can be deployed instantly to test their trading algorithms.
This is an invitation-only seminar event for banking professionals, hosted by QA Financial and Delphix. If you are interested in attending, please e-mail us at email@example.com

Speaker: Adolfo Montoro, Director Global Market Risk Analytics - Bank of America in conversation with Matthew Crabbe, CEO - QA Media
Speaker: Gary Hallam, Director Global Enablement - Delphix
Delphix will explain how standard, repeatable data sets for FRTB testing can be created for instantaneous and secure access. Using masking and synthesisation technologies, firms can create standardised, consistent, CVAs for testing, replacing what would have been terabytes of data with just a few megabytes that can be accessed instantaneously, and synchronised with other databases to create on-demand test management. Using real-world examples Delphix will explain how sensitive data on counterparties, market positions and personal information can be anonymised for compliance and optimised for test virtualisation in the cloud.
This panel discussion will involve all seminar participants, but will be led by our panel of expert speakers, including:
Moderator: Gary Hallam, Director Global Enablement - Delphix
Adolfo Montoro, Director Global Market Risk Analytics - Bank of America
Edosa Odaro, Head of Data Services - AXA
