CFO report: bank capital management in uncertain times
Banks continue to face an uncertain regulatory and business environment as regulators marshal their responses to the global financial crisis. Perhaps nowhere is this uncertainty more keenly felt today than in the area of capital management.
This CFO report, sponsored by Ernst & Young and conducted by CFO Research Services, focuses on financial services executives’ views on capital management - when, where, and how to deploy capital in an uncertain regulatory environment.
We asked about the capital management strategies they are pursuing and how capital management and strategy development intersect in their business plans. We also probed for changes banks are making in their practices, policies, methods and organizational structures associated with capital decision-making.
In these survey highlights, read what bankers had to say about:
- The linkage between capital, risk and strategy and its implications for decision-making at global banks
- The current state of financial reform and changing capital requirements
- The areas of risk management getting the most attention at global banks
