RMA Seeks Participants for Market Risk Study
The Risk Management Association (RMA) is seeking participants for a new capital markets study of credit approval and limit-management process in financial institutions. The Web-based survey is part of an ongoing, long-term effort by RMA to identify best practices and provide an ongoing benchmark to help members understand market risk. This survey focuses on practices for credit and credit limit approval processes with regard to both trading and non-trading businesses. It also asks about institutions’ integration of Basel II methodologies into their approaches to credit and limit risk management. The final report, to be issued by the end of 2007, will be available only to survey participants. It will describe the current state of credit approval and limit management processes. It will clearly detail the most prevalent methods, tools, and decision processes used to determine leading practices.
