Basel III

The Basel 3 framework introduces another major change in capital/liquidity standards.

The Basel 3 framework introduces another major change in capital/liquidity standards.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008-2009, the Basel Committee of Banking Supervision (BCBS) embarked on a program of substantially revising its existing capital adequacy guidelines. The resultant capital adequacy framework is termed “Basel III”.

The Basel 3 framework introduces another major change in capital/liquidity standards. While the official implementation deadlines may seem a long way off, market and competitor pressure is already driving major change. Firms must engage with Basel 3 now to put themselves in the best competitive position in the post-crisis landscape.

  • Implications of regulatory capital and liquidity reforms incorporated within your corporate strategy, business model, risk appetite, investment decisions, and business development activity.
  • Fully defined capital objectives effectively communicated within your businesses.
  • Enhanced awareness of the profitability of your businesses and product pricing, due to a full reflection of capital consumption.
  • Internal capital models, and their application across your business, reviewed to ensure that thecorrect amount of capital is consumed by your various products.
