There are two main approaches for calculating the Collective Investment FundG Risk Capital RequirementG . The first approach involves directly calculating a risk Capital RequirementG for any position in any FundG . The second approach involves using a look-though method which involves calculating the risk Capital RequirementsG for the positions or ExposuresG in underlying assets or investments of the FundG , using the relevant or applicable risk Capital RequirementG calculation methods. As the name suggests, a look-through method involves looking through the FundG to identify the underlying positions and trying to calculate the capital required to address the risk of loss arising from volatility in market prices of such underlying positions.
