Business Overview:


The Intermediate Holding Company (“IHC”) program structured at the U.S. level across poles of activities of BNP Paribas provides guidance, supports the analysis, impact assessment and drives adjustments of the U.S. platform’s operating model due to the drastic changes introduced by the Enhanced Prudential Standards (“EPS”) for Foreign Banking Organizations (“FBOs”) finalized by the Federal Reserve in February 2014, implementing Section 165 of U.S. Dodd-Frank Act.



One of BNP Paribas’ great strengths is its expertise in managing risk. A rigorous risk control is a part of the Group’s responsibility, both to clients and to the financial system as a whole. To this extent, Risk ensures the risk taking policy and the risks generated by the Bank’s activities comply and are compatible with its strategic objectives. Risk is the second line of defense over risk management activities of the Group. The main Risk objectives are:


  • Accompany the Group’s development with a business-minded spirit
  • Provide a fast, complete and reliable information on our risk profile
  • Offer high quality risk management expertise to the Group’s stakeholders
  • Foster risk anticipation and position RISK as a prospective watchtower
  • Prepare the Group for high and higher regulatory expectations


Within the Risk stream ‘Enterprise Risk Architecture’ (Risk ERA), Risk ALM-T and Liquidity contributes to the definition of the risk framework surrounding ALMT activities and Group‘s liquidity management.

C) Monitor and control:


  • Proactively and retrospectively identify and analyze liquidity and Interest Rate risks, using various tools such as relevant metrics (Liquidity gap and stress tests, Interest rate gap, NII, EVE, PV01)
  • Ensure that deals executed by ALMT are in line with the decisions of the relevant committees (ALCOs, CCDGs, etc.…) or in line with defined delegations.
  • Ensure compliance with defined limits/guidelines/objectives: Control exposures vs. authorizations notify excesses and ensure that proper actions are taken. Monitor exposures vs. liquidity constraints and objectives (diversification, credit quality, market liquidity, asset encumbrance, etc…).
  • Review and approve all the ALM models and methodologies used for internal and regulatory risk metrics.


D) Contributions to other processes:

  • Opine on the prudential classification (Banking / Trading Book) of ALMT transactions, in line with the relevant Group policy.
  • Review and approve all valuation methodologies (including definition of market reserves methodologies),
  • Contribute the production and control process of regulatory metrics (in particular the Liquidity Coverage Ratio - LCR) as per the defined split of responsibility between RISK, ALMT and Group Finance
