Playing a key role in both the second pillar of the new Basel framework and the Solvency II project, economic capital models are becoming increasingly important. Economic Capital Modelling provides you with an overview of the current state of play for these cutting edge models from three angles:

A theoretical overview of risk measurement, diversification and aggregation; A survey of the current state of implementation; and A supervisory view on the use of these models. The combination of these three angles is unique and provides you with truly multi-faceted view of this subject.


All aspects of economic capital for financial conglomerates are incorporated. Moreover, this book is set apart from any other in its field because it provides you with a balanced overview from the perspective of both risk managers within institutions and supervisors.

Practitioners, risk managers, policymakers and academics are brought together with their insights combined into a single volume. As the practitioners’ view is not that of a single institution, consultant or vendor you are able to reflect on the combined insights of a number of institutions that have cutting edge economic capital frameworks.
