  • Many banks are hiring specialist interim resource to assist with FRTB and to help navigate the related changes required around modelling and risk management.
  • IFRS 9 is also receiving focus and additional interim resource. The implementation of IFRS 9 is expected to be complex, even more so for those institutions with international operations, as there remains a divergence with the US rules.
  • A further area of focus for banks is BCBS 239 – this has increased the demand for interim expertise particularly within Risk and Risk IT.
  • Many financial institutions are increasing their attention on both operational risk and conduct risk, often with specialist interim resource in the first instance to help build and enhance operational risk and control frameworks and to strengthen the link with risk appetite.
