Capital - Measured


No two financial institutions are alike. But every bank – whether it’s a less complex organization or a major multi-national bank – can utilize capital modelling to more effectively assess and benchmark risk profiles, inform risk tolerances, allocate capital, meet regulatory and rating agency requirements, and strategize for the future. BankingBook Analytics understands that capital modelling is not one size fits all and provides a complete range of economic capital modelling solutions.

BBA's ECAP Leader provides an integrated view of capital for material risks, using a modelling engine attuned to the credit cycle, such that economic capital rises in good periods and starts to fall, relatively, in bad periods as losses are realized.

The primary purpose of ECAP Leader is to be used as a baseline capital reporting tool for the determination of risk-adjusted capital requirement mapped to the risk appetite. This capital metric is used for BCAR and ICAAP.
