Introduction to Basel III
The purpose of the seminar is to provide participants an overview of the updated Basel rules for capital adequacy and liquidity coverage at banks
We will start with the evolution of international banking regulations, with Basel I and Basel II.
We will then move on to Basel III and discuss how the quality, consistency, and transparency of the capital base will be raised. We will see how the risk coverage of the capital framework will be strengthened by reducing procyclicality through the introduction of a countercyclical capital buffer.
Basel III introduces new global liquidity standards. A detailed understanding of the proposed timetable for the implementation will be given.
Finally, we will discuss the practical challenges of implementing the new rules. Practical cases from real banking practice will be discussed.
