Counterparty Risk - Are We Leveraging Our Tools?

 

Counterparty risk has long been a source of concern for risk managers. However, the financial crisis brought new urgency to counterparty risk management for risk practitioners, regulators and financial firms alike, as exposure to collapsing giants like Lehman Brothers and AIG left the industry reeling. That urgency has been punctuated by the global economy's current struggles, as firms grapple with new regulations, the European debt crisis and fears of a double-dip recession.

Current technologies and techniques allow for more sophisticated and effective approaches to counterparty risk than those that fell short in 2008. Yet there are many barriers to successful adoption and implementation, and significant changes will be required, from the global regulatory level all the way down to individual departments at financial firms around the world. If the end goal is a standardized method of quantifying risk exposure among financial institutions, the industry and regulators have considerable work to do.

View a GARP report which examines the strategies required to successfully implement technologies that manage counterparty risk.
