Complex Data and Calculations

Implementing the Government of Canada’s Office of Supervision of Financial Institutions’ (OSFI) ever changing landscape of Basel Capital Adequacy Reporting (BCAR) requirements correctly can be very time consuming and challenging.

Completing BCAR calculations requires accessing multiple data sources along with calculating complex calculations and business rules.

Questions to Consider

  • Are we calculating the most optimal capital (e.g., mitigations, modelling instruments, exposure level calculations)?
  • Do we have complete, relevant, and accurate risk data to calculate BCAR’s required RWA, capital deductions, or ratios?
  • Are we in full compliance with OSFI’s BCAR requirements?

  • Are we able to generate BCAR reports promptly to distribute to relevant professionals in our organization as well as to OSFI?
  • Are we able to establish the lineage of our data?
  • Can we access our data in a consistently timely manner?
