Basel Committee on Banking Supervision have published its latest paper on Interest Rate Risk (IRRBB). This paper details Interest Rate Risk principals updated since the consultation paper was published last year. The Committee has concluded that the heterogeneous nature of IRRBB would be more appropriately captured in Pillar 2.
Nevertheless IRRBB is set to become an increasing priority for regulators and risk managers as the Committee is recommending an enhanced Pillar 2 approach.
Banks are expected to implement the standard by 2018.
