    • The calculation of economic capital for market risk under Basel III, which is incorporated in the European Union’s CRR (Capital Requirements Regulation) and the CRD (Capital Requirements Directive), is a measure of the amount of capital a bank must maintain to cover potential risks associated with its trading and market activities.

    For market risk, economic capital is generally calculated using one of two main approaches:

    • The Standardized Approach (SA)
      The Internal Models Approach (IMA):
      Value-at-Risk (VaR): Calculation of VaR at a given time horizon and at a specific confidence level
    • Stressed Value-at-Risk (sVaR):VaR calculated over a period of historical stress
    • Expected Shortfall (ES) Expected loss beyond VaR at a given confidence level
    • Incremental Default Risk (IDR): Assessment of credit risk for trading positions
    • Counterparty credit risk (Credit Valuation Adjustment – CVA): Calculation of the risk of deterioration in the credit quality of counterparties
    • The capital charge for counterparty credit risk (CCR): for counterparty trading exposures, such as derivatives or securities financing.
    • Regulatory capital: Regulatory capital is defined by the regulator and corresponds to the minimum capital required by the banking commission. The methods for calculating regulatory capital are set out in the Basel II directives. They are based, in IRBA, on two main data: the probability of default of the counterparty at risk, and the loss in the event of default of this counterparty.
    • Economic capital: Economic capital corresponds to the equity capital necessary to cover a maximum potential loss for a confidence threshold fixed over a given horizon (carrying out scenarios which establish the losses realized on the bank’s assets.
      Internal capital: It corresponds to the own funds necessary to cover all the risks identified by a bank. Its calculation is based on the methods developed by each establishment to take into account their specificities. It is supervised by the ICAAP. It must describe the calculation and stress test procedures for the various risks of a financial institution.
