Business Finance CPD Online Course Description

Basel III - Capital

Basel III - Capital
On completion of this tutorial, you will be able to:

- describe the key elements of the amended capital adequacy regime under Basel III
- define the concept of "qualifying capital" and understand the importance of common equity capital (CET1)
- explain why additional capital buffers (capital conservation buffer and countercyclical capital buffer) were needed and what these buffers are
- detail the timelines for full implementation of the Basel III capital requirements and summarize the key implementation issues

Tutorial Overview
The financial crisis highlighted that both the quality and quantity of bank capital was insufficient to meet the losses that occurred. The size and nature of the losses, and the need to enlist government support to prevent bank failures, quickly galvanized the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the regulatory community to rethink the capital adequacy rules and minimum ratios (among other issues).

This tutorial describes the changes to the capital requirements under Basel III, including the tighter definition of qualifying capital and increased focus on CET1, the new capital buffers, and the revised minimum ratios. The impact of these changes on banks’ capital structures are explored, as are the implementation issues during the transition period.
