In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, inadequate credit risk management systems have been widely held responsible by regulators for spreading the crisis’ germs all over the financial sector. As a result, myriad regulations affecting credit risk mitigation have been introduced in the past decade, requiring market participants to change their credit management practices – especially when trading over-the-counter derivatives.
The challenges are daunting, however, new technologies are available to help banks adapt to the new normal in credit risk management and – in particular – collateral management.
The panel examines the key challenges currently faced by central banks within their credit risk framework, with key points of discussion including:
- Credit risk management. An analysis of the challenges posed by new margin regulations on collateral management systems
- Multicurrency credit support annexes. How the difficulties presented by a lack of transparency and complex agreements can be overcome
- A new era of credit risk analytics. How new developments reflect the changes to collateral management
- Market opportunity and competitive advantage. How technology can translate risks into opportunities
