Basel, capital & liquidity

  • Share

Developed in response to inadequacies in financial regulation exposed during the global financial crisis, Basel III calls for tough new rules on bank capital and liquidity.

Negotiated through the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the agreement known as “Basel III” is poised to have a significant impact on the world’s financial systems and economies.

Basel III EY timeline & approach

Overall, the implications for the banking industry from Basel III could be profound. New minimum capital standards changes combined with the higher capital charges for trading books will make some business models less profitable or even unprofitable going forward and banks will need to rethink their strategy and business portfolio in the light of the changes.

Read our insights below to learn how the new regulations will impact banks’ costs and profitability, from increased liquid assets to enhanced data and technology infrastructure required to meet the new standards.
