The final draft text on FRTB "Minimum Capital requirements for market risk" dated January of this year sets out "Revised standards",see page (5) under executive summary, the word "Standard" can be in interpreted as "Acceptable but of less than top quality" .The process to get those internal models a...

for the Residual risk add-on you either take the gross notional amount or, if the gross is nonexistent, take the maximum potential loss, for the latter you have to get the Expected Effective Positive Exposure which is defined in SA-CCR as : 1.4 *( MtM +PFE(vol of underlying risk driving the contra...

we generate a vol surface using SABR ,then we apply different twists and turns to this surface to compute vega,is this correct ?should we shift parameters ,recalibrate and compute vega ? or shift the surface ?

linear correlation is very confusing !it is used everywhere in finance , it only makes sense if the underlying RV ( Bivariate , Multivariate)are normal,or more generallycome from the elliptical world ,send me a pm ,will dig up a good paper that goes into details.
