Net Capital Calculations Challenges
The future of securities regulatory landscape is more challenging than before as the SEC and CFTC are mandating greater standardization of over-the-counter (OTC) derivative contracts, supporting electronic price discovery, trade execution and reporting, and mandating central counterparty (CCP) clearing to reduce systemic risk. Best practice in computing liquidity risk is pushing firms to examine their existing models and procedures. Changes to Rule 17A-5 have mandated that firm’s external auditors ‘raise the bar’ for their annual attest scrutiny of regulatory computations and allocations.
These wide ranging changes of regulatory requirements are forcing firms to invest significant time, resources and effort to adapt to a paradigm shift on how regulators will track and monitor trading activities in an increasingly challenging regulatory environment.
Recent and upcoming regulatory reforms such as CAT (Consolidated Audit Trail) will enable regulators to be able to examine transactions across the entire lifecycle and all the way back to the beneficial owners. This massive and valuable consolidated information, which will be the world’s largest repository of securities transactions, will require broker-dealers to build a robust, scalable and flexible infrastructure.
