Business Finance CPD Online Course Description

Basel II and Basel 2.5

Basel II and Basel 2.5
Tutorial Overview
Regulatory capital requirements have evolved over time in an attempt to adequately guard against unexpected losses arising from various risks generated by financial institutions. From simple beginnings in the 1980s, the regulations have become ever more sophisticated in an attempt to capture the increasing subtleties of credit, market, and operational risk. Yet it would seem that such developments were insufficient to deal with an event on the scale of the global financial crisis.

This tutorial describes the concept of capital adequacy and how the Basel requirements in relation to this have progressed from the simplicity of the original Basel capital accord (Basel I) in 1988 to the more sophisticated requirements of Basel II and Basel 2.5. All three “pillars” are covered – the minimum capital requirements set out in Pillar 1, the Pillar 2 supervisory review process, and the disclosure requirements mandated by Pillar 3.

On completion of this tutorial, you will be able to:

- describe why banks need capital
- explain the difference between solvency and liquidity
- outline the evolution of regulatory capital requirements from the 1988 Basel Capital Accord (Basel I) to the "three pillars" approach of Basel II and the subsequent amendments made under Basel 2.5
- describe the minimum capital requirements as set out in Pillar 1
- explain the purpose of the supervisory review process as set forth in Pillar 2
- outline the disclosure requirements mandated by Pillar 3
