In the measurement and management of market risks, banks have to deal with a multitude of challenges. These include, among others, the TRIM (Targeted Review of Internal Models) reviews of the ECB, increased regulatory requirements in the context of CRR2/Basel IV, such as FRTB and SA-CCR, as well as current topics with a focus on cost efficiency in the area of market risk, such as efficient process design and organisational objectives for the future.

KPMG supports you in the implementation of these new requirements and enhancements, from the preliminary study to their incorporation into existing or new systems, and from prototyping, IT-related technical concepts and interface specifications to testing and knowledge transfer to the line. In addition to technical support, we offer sound and integrated project management expertise.

We have extensive experience in the field of market risk management and have supported numerous strategic and implementation-related projects with respect to methods, processes and IT architectures in the areas of market price risk and counterparty default risk. In the context of regulatory requirements for risks from trading transactions, we have successfully supported our clients since Basel 2 with lighthouse projects in the German market on Basel 2.5, Basel 3, Basel 4 and FRTB.
