Basel: the road ahead for capital and liquidity
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.
