Business Overview Cont’d:
The RISK organization is organized through Global Risk Practices, Transversal Risk Streams, Business Risk Domains and Risk Geographies, as described in the below diagram.

Risk & Regulatory Strategy is part of RISK Anticipation which is a Global Risk Practice. IHC RISK & Regulatory Strategy is part of Risk Geographies “Americas”.

RISK & Regulatory Strategy:
IHC RISK & Regulatory Strategy is centered on risk management and its links to US regulations.

US Regulatory Context:
In accordance with the Dodd-Frank Act, BNP Paribas is required to establish an Intermediate Holding Company (“IHC”) over its US subsidiaries. The IHC is subject to risk-based capital and leverage standards, regulatory reporting, enhanced governance requirements, liquidity risk management, and other requirements. 

To this end RISK has established an Enterprise Risk Governance, a Risk Identification Program and technology platforms for producing the enhanced Enterprise Risk Reporting. The IHC Enterprise Risk Identification Program (“Risk ID”) has the following objectives:

1. As a component of the Capital Planning / CCAR Program, the Risk ID supports the scenario creation process; it interacts with the model development process;
2. The Risk ID team is expected to present to various forums and committees; maintain specific documentation, including program doc; present to regulators.
3. As the point of contact, and source of information for the Group Risk Identification effort. Calendar and methodologies need to be efficiently aligned with the Group.
4. As a core resource in support of discussions with, and reporting to Directors and Executive Management. It means in particular that Directors and Executives spontaneously ask for newly identified risks to be added to the Risk ID inventory, or when the Reporting teams are using the inventory as a check-list, when Management Committees receive quarterly updates on the material items, etc.
5. As a comprehensive, coherent, repeatable and auditable process the Risk ID team will have documents to explain how each risk item of the taxonomy is measured in a consistent manner across the business lines; that controls are put in place overall risk ID process’ steps.

RISK & Regulatory Strategy is dealing with other topics, such as Risk Appetite, Regulatory Watch, etc. These topics are in part linked to the Risk ID program.
