Work experience

Maxima Consulting, Inc, Lead Systems Analyst / Project Manager

The Regulatory Capital Reporting (RCAP) systems compute the Federal Reserve mandated Regulatory Capital Holding Reserves for State Street Corporation and its subsidiaries (Bank & Trust, Global Markets). The capital exposures to various State Street counterparties across numerous financial products/instruments are periodically evaluated using BancWARE (a 3rd party tool). Based on this evaluation, the Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels of Regulatory Capital Reserve Ratios are computed and published to the Federal Reserve on a Quarterly basis. The RCAP systems follow the BASEL I & BASEL II Regulatory Capital framework guideline. Based on this framework, broader risk exposure parameters like Probability of Default (PD) of counterparty, Exposure-At-Default (EAD), Loss-Given-Default (LGD) and Expected Loss-Given-Default (ELGD) are calculated and subsequently reported to the Federal Reserve.
