Understand impending regulatory changes around capital adequacy data implications of capital adequacy and learn the best practices around data management for effective risk monitoring

In the wake of the current credit crisis, the regulators have shifted their attention towards ensuring the quality and quantity of the capital reserves held by banks. One of the key challenges that financial firms face is determining the optimum level of capital and accurately monitoring and measuring the exposures on a firm-wide basis. This issue can be further attributed to data challenges and IT challenges like latency, disintegrated applications etc.
