FRTB Marginal Back-Allocation

This paper develops a method to back-allocate to individual positions the market risk capital requirement that a bank must satisfy under the revised standardized approach proposed by the Basel Committee. Our method assesses the contribution of single positions or sub-portfolios to the overall capital charge. One important feature of our method is that it provides insight on which positions, sub-portfolios, and risk factors drive the capital charge and which help mitigate it. A negative contribution indicates that a marginal increase in the position would lead to a decrease in the capital charge, and vice versa.
