Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting (FRR) business is holding a webinar with Risk.net to explore how the year delay to Basel IV provides an opportunity to prepare and examine suitable financial technology platforms to help comply with the regulatory changes.

At the end of March it was announced that Basel III finalisation (a.k.a Basel IV), originally due to come into force in January 2022, will be delayed by a year, giving a new implementation date of January 1st, 2023. Banks are being urged by Wolters Kluwer experts to take a proactive approach to not only comply with ever changing regulations in a timely manner but to also “leverage their investments to look ahead and anticipate breaches/shortfalls.”

Speakers include Xavier Dubois, Director of Risk and Finance for Wolters Kluwer FRR. With a 20 year career he joined Wolters Kluwer in 2014 and has held a number of roles within the company including within the development, professional services, pre-sales, marketing and product management teams.  In his current position as Director of Risk and Finance, Dubois leads Wolters Kluwer’s Basel IV initiative within EMEA, encompassing solution areas including Market, Credit and Financial Risk Management, as well as strategic and business implications, data and IT management.

Other speakers include Harry Fang, Senior Director and Head of Risk Methodology and Analytics at CIBC, as well as Jeff Simmons, Chief Risk Officer for MUFG Securities Europe. Philip Alexander, Regulations Editor at Risk.net will be moderating the event.
