Announcement of Systemic Risk Reporting Review

London: 25 June.  JWG and Paradigm Risk are pleased to announce they have received funding from the Technology Strategy Board - a public agency - and the Financial Services Knowledge Transfer Network to undertake a review of systemic risk reporting in the UK.  The review will focus on the practical steps required for the UK to control its systemic risk by identifying the ‘pipes and plumbing’ needed to establish effective monitoring to prevent a repeat of the recent financial crises.

Terms of reference:

JWG and Paradigm Risk will examine the:

  • realistic range of systemic risk regimes
  • information and data required to support these regimes
  • the practicality of collecting that data
  • data storage, transmission and manipulation issues
  • data quality and accuracy requirements
  • call for new data standards
  • changes that firms will be required to make
  • affected competencies and governance models.


The team will be conducting interviews with representatives of central banks, regulators, supervisors, investment firms, international agencies, suppliers to financial services and trade associations across Europe and the United States.  They will also be reviewing the range of academic contributions to the systemic risk debate.

Prior to publication of its findings, the team will conduct a ‘road show’ in London for legislators, regulators and the central banks.
