Despite a growing emphasis on risk management at global banks in response to regulatory requirements, several issues are yet to be addressed. Based on the deliberations at a round-table conference it hosted recently in London, CRISIL Global Research & Analytics (GR&A) has identified three key areas to be tackled. Risk management at global banks needs to be more central to management decision-making and planning processes and integrate better with banks’ operating models. Second, banks’ stress testing capabilities need to be significantly enhanced. Finally, banks need to increase their know-how on risk management related data requirements and analytics.

Participants at the conference included regulators, banks, asset managers, legal firms and corporates. Dr. Colin Lawrence, Director, Prudential Risk Division, Financial Services Authority, UK, delivered the keynote address on ‘Risk Regulation - Current Issues and Trends’. Discussions at the conference centred on the gaps in the risk management processes prevailing at most global banks against the backdrop of evolving regulations. The conference was organised by CRISIL GR&A — the foremost provider of end-to-end risk and analytics services to trading and risk management functions at the world’s leading financial institutions and corporations.

The risk management processes at banks need to be better integrated with their business and operating models. For this, risk management needs to be viewed as a key part of strategy and operations and go well beyond merely being a compliance exercise. There is a need to incorporate risk-based capital performance measures and stress testing more centrally into business decision-making processes.

Banks have begun stress testing their portfolios but need to do more in the area of integrated stress testing, including market, credit, liquidity and operational stress testing. Stress testing also needs to be forward-looking, with several tail risk scenarios and take into account the inter-connectivity of the global financial systems and economies. Sanjeev Sinha, President, CRISIL GR&A says,“The outcome of integrated stress testing scenarios should be a key input for the management and boards of banks while deciding on their risk appetite, capital and liquidity planning.”

There is a growing need for strengthening risk management by improving data availability and risk analytics. Lack of consistent and complete data prevents accurate risk computation. Regulators like the US Federal Reserve (Fed) disregard stress testing submissions of banks if they are not based on robust data — in such cases, the Fed uses its own assumptions based on industry averages. Moreover, despite past failures there is still an over-reliance on traditional measures of risk such as Value-at-Risk (VaR). VaR is not useful in planning for extreme events as it measures the maximum possible loss within standard operating conditions. Banks need to emphasise newer techniques such as reverse stress tests. Explains Gurpreet Chhatwal, Senior Director and Global Head, Risk and Analytics, CRISIL GR&A,“Reverse stress tests can help banks identify a range of adverse circumstances which could cause business failure and help develop mitigation plans. It is also important that the limitations of models being used at the banks are fully understood.”
