'Basel III': Finalising post-crisis reforms

Dec 2017

On Thursday, 7 December 2017, the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision (“BCBS”) published several papers laying out the revised requirements for the calculation of risk-weighted assets (“RWAs”) and capital floors. These papers finalise the work that BCBS has undertaken since 2012 to calibrate the Basel III framework. Basel III was introduced to address the most pressing deficiencies from the 2007-08 crisis and to make banks more resilient.
