The Internal Ratings Based Risk-Weight Formula


Instructor: Fred Vacelet
Product ID: 705198

  • Duration: 60 Min
Within the same document recommending never to take up a model without its full analysis and justification, the Basel Committee demanded that banks take up the IRB formula, explained par. 272 of the Basel II original text. This formula has, since then, determined to a large extent the amount of regulatory capital in the financial system. This webinar training will break down the rationale and the limitations of this critical formula.

Why Should You Attend:

The rationale of the IRB formula, explained par. 272 of the Basel II original text formula, which gives the capital requirement as a function of the credit risk, is misunderstood by many a user. Let alone what happens for counterparties with low probabilities of defaults, when the function exhibits badly-behaved features. Whether quantitatively inclined or not, it is a good practice to try to understand why and where such a critical approach can be used, together with its limitations.

This webinar will explain the rationale and the limitations of the Internal Ratings-Based (IRB) risk-weight formula.
