ICAAP to ICARA
From January 2022 the new IFPR – Investment Firms Prudential Regime changes come into force and with that new capital and risk calculations. These new calculation factors known as K factors will form the content of the Internal Capital Adequacy Risk Assessment (ICARA) which will replace the ICAAP.
