Making Great Ideas Become Reality”

Basel lll Summary

Basel lll
Basel lll

BASELIII is a global regulatory standard on bank capital adequacy, stress testing

and market liquidity risk agreed upon by the members of the Basel Committee on

Banking Supervisoion in 2010-11.This, the third of the Basel Accords which was

developed in response to the deficiencies in financial regulation revealed

by the late-2000s financial crisis Basel III strengthens bank capital requirements and

introduces new regulatory requirements on bank liquidity and bank leverage For instance,

the change in the calculation of loan risk in Basel II which some consider a causal factor in

the credit bubble prior to the 2007-8 collapse: in Basel II one of the principal factors of financial

risk management was out-sourced to companies that were not subject to supervision: credit

rating agencies. Ratings of creditworthiness and of bonds, financial bundles and various other

financial instruments were conducted without supervision by official agencies, leading to AAA

ratings on mortgage-backed securities, credit default swaps and other instruments that proved

in practice to be extremely bad credit risks. In Basel III a more formal scenario analysis is

applied (three official scenarios from regulators, with ratings agencies and firms urged to

apply more extreme ones).

Basel III will require banks to hold 4.5% of common equity (up from 2% in

Basel II) and 6% of Tier I capital (up from 4% in Basel II) of risk-weighted assets

(RWA). Basel III also introduces additional capital buffers, (i) a mandatory capital

conservation buffer of 2.5% and (ii) a discretionary countercyclical buffer, which

allows national regulators to require up to another 2.5% of capital during periods of high

credit growth. In addition, Basel III introduces a minimum 3% leverage ratio and two

required liquidity ratios. The Liquidity Coverage Ratio requires a bank to hold sufficient

high-quality liquid assets to cover its total net cash outflows over 30 days; the Net Stable

Funding Ratio requires the available amount of stable funding to exceed the required

amount of stable funding over a one-year period of extended stress
