There are two methods for calculating the Equity Risk Capital RequirementG : the standard method and the simplified method. The standard method requires two separate calculations. The first is Specific RiskG and the second is General Market RiskG . The simplified method is easier to calculate but usually results in a higher Capital RequirementG than the standard method. In addition, Authorised FirmsG must calculate an Interest Rate Risk Capital RequirementG for a forward, a future, an option or a company issued warrant.
