Increasing demand for credit has opened up the marketplace to a host of new tech-savvy lending providers. To compete in this new landscape, banks are changing their approach to credit management in order to provide faster and more convenient service to their clients.
Banks need to adopt new technology for quicker decisioning without sacrificing any of the risk assessment and analysis. At Moody's Analytics, we're helping our clients meet this challenge by investing in the latest data trends and technology advancements and implementing them into our solutions.
Partly as a means of offsetting the loss of business activity to deleveraging by households, businesses, as well as state and local governments, the federal government's share of the U.S.' broadest estimate of public and private nonfinancial-sector debt has soared from year-end 2007's 18% to the 34% of 2017's third quarter.

The new Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) standards for IRRBB come into force January 1, 2018. This paper looks at the standards from a practical implementation point of view and raises some of the main challenges.
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.
