A comprehensive set of reform measures designed to improve the regulation, supervision and risk management within the banking sector. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published the first version of Basel III in late 2009, giving banks approximately three years to satisfy all requirements. Largely in response to the credit crisis, banks are required to maintain proper leverage ratios and meet certain capital requirements.

... 23/08/2012 BASEL- III GUIDELINES Background : ➢ RBI released its final guidelines on 2nd May,2012 on the implementation of Basel – III capital regulation in India. ➢ These guidelines will be effective from 1st January,2013 in a phased manner & will be fully implemented by 31st March,2018. ➢ For the FY 2013, Banks will have to disclose the capital ratios computed under the existing guidelines (Basel – II) on capital adequacy as well as those computed under the Basel – III capital adequacy framework. Purpose : • Implementation of Basel III is essential for restoring confidence in the regulatory framework for banks and to ensure a safe & stable global banking system. • Basel-III urges banks to raise the quality of Capital to absorb unexpected losses, to reduce the chance of another financial crisis. Need arose due to : • The U S sub-prime crisis has highlighted the linkages of the main types of risks, especially Credit, Market & Liquidity risks and since then the need for strengthening the capital regime has emerged prominently. Important Points : ➢ Greater focus on “Common Equity” i.e. paid up capital, reserves, retained earnings etc. raising the minimum common equity requirements from the existing 2% of risk-weighted assets to 5.50% by 31st March,2018, and a capital conservation buffer of 2.50%, bring the total common equity requirements to 8% by 2018. ➢ The overall minimum Tier – I capital requirements, which includes......

...BASEL III NORMS AND INDIAN BANKING: ASSESSMENT AND EMERGING CHALLENGES C.S.Balasubramaniam Professor, Babasaheb Gawde Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai Email: ABSTRACT Banking operations worldwide have undergone phenomenal changes in the last two decades since 1990s. Financial liberalization and technological innovations have created new and complex financial instruments/products have increased their role and turnover in financial markets and have rendered banking operations vulnerable to a variety of risks. The financial crisis episodes surfaced since 2006 have highlighted this paradox to a number of central banks operating in different countries and RBI and Indian banking sector is no exception to this phenomenon. Basel framework has been drawn by Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in consultation with supervisory authorities of banking sector in fifteen emerging market countries with the basic objective of advocating codes of bank supervision and promoting financial stability amidst economic crises. This research paper is divided in three parts .The opening part attempts to briefly describe the changes in the banking scenario since 1991 reforms and the necessity of introducing Basel III to the Indian Banking sector. Part II presents the Basel standards framework and explains why the transition from Basel II to Basel III norms has become necessary to bring in measures and safety standards which would equip the banks to become more......

Basel Rating

...About Ratings & Segments on IRB Approach João Pires da Cruz1 Introduction The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, on the process of definition of the New Capital Accord, establishes a stepwise framework for regulatory capital allocation for credit risk, starting on what is designated as Standard Approach, in which banks must allocate capital according to regulatory rules, and finishing on what is designated as the Advanced IRB Approach, in which banks must allocate capital based on their own risk evaluation and on the committee guidelines for that evaluation. The committee defines several guidelines for the IRB Approach depending on the type of credit exposure but, technically, we can group the several lines of attach into two ways of deal with the credit portfolio, the rating approach, for the major exposures like banks, sovereigns and corporate; and the segmentation approach for retail and small business exposures. The most accepted credit risk frameworks are rating based models since, historically, the aim of the models was the bond market, the market of debt securities issued by stable corporations, banks and states. In this market, the assumption that a debt security is less risky than other debt security become the essence of the market, since debt issuers need to disclose information to lower the price of the debt security, affected by a risk premium over the interest rate. And the disclosed information includes rating agencies evaluations of financial figures...

...Impact of Basel III on European Banking Sector As extensively anticipated, the oversight body of the Basel Committee declared on September 12 2010 that it has approved the capital and liquidity improvement package initially proposed in December 2009 and modified in July 2010, identified as Basel 3(Adrian B. W. 77). The Basel 3 package was recommended to ensure that the monetary system cannot experience the type of collapse and resulting economic slowdown that took place between 2007 and 2009. Even though the effects of the Basel 3 rules on an individual bank will depend on its asset/capital base and on the appropriate regulator's appliances of the rules, the publication of the standardized ratios and rules is one of the most important developments for banks ever since the disaster began. Banks can now concentrate on a future policy to meet the combined impacts of these rules (BCBS et al.). The Basel 3 rules that a bank should hold 4.5%of the common equity. This essentially consists of common shares in addition to retained earnings. The rules call for banks to have 4.5% of common equity (Kane, E.J 88). The total Tier 1 requirement rises from 4% to 6% under the rule. This implies that other forms of Tier 1 requirement will account for up to 1.5% of Tier 1 capital. The entire minimum capital requirements stand at 8%, subject to a new capital buffer. Nevertheless, 6% of capital has to be Tier 1, which denotes that Tier 2 can account for less than 2% of capital. Tier 3, which is......

Basel 3

...2.1 Components of Capital 2.1.1 Under the existing capital adequacy guidelines based on Basel II framework, total regulatory capital is comprised of Tier 1 capital (core capital) and Tier 2 capital (supplementary capital). Total regulatory capital should be at least 9% of risk weighted assets and within this, Tier 1 capital should be at least 6% of risk weighted assets. Within Tier 1 capital, innovative Tier 1 instruments are limited to 15% of Tier 1 capital. Further, Perpetual Non- Cumulative Preference Shares along with Innovative Tier 1 instruments should not exceed 40% of total Tier 1 capital at any point of time. Also, at present, Tier 2 capital cannot be more than 100% of Tier 1 capital and within Tier 2 capital, subordinated debt is limited to a maximum of 50% of Tier 1 capital. 2.1.2 Post crisis, with a view to improving the quality and quantity of regulatory capital, it has been decided that the predominant form of Tier 1 capital must be Common Equity; since it is critical that banks’ risk exposures are backed by high quality capital base. Non-equity Tier 1 and Tier 2 capital would continue to form part of regulatory capital subject to eligibility criteria as laid down in Basel III. Accordingly, under revised guidelines (Basel III), total regulatory capital will consist of the sum of the following categories: (i) Tier 1 Capital (going-concern capital2) (a) Common Equity Tier 1 (b) Additional Tier 1 (ii) Tier 2 Capital (gone-concern capital) 2.2...

...Basel Committee on Banking Supervision FIN 311 Bank Management and Turkish Banking System What is Basel Committee? An institution created in 1974 by central bank Governors from the Group of Ten nations. It has many of members come from Argentina, Turkey, Japan, Australia, Russia, the United Kingdom, United States, France, Germany, India and other countries. They meet four times a year at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. The role of the committee is that set out the minimum capital requirements of financial institutions with the goal of minimizing credit risk. Additionally, the first contract was the Basel I. It was issued in 1988 and focused on credit risk by creating a bank asset classification system. The system has five risk categories. Some of those are; * 0% - cash, central bank and government debt and any OECD government debt * 0%, 10%, 20% or 50% - public sector debt * 20% - development bank debt, OECD bank debt, OECD securities firm debt, non-OECD bank debt (under one year maturity) and non-OECD public sector debt, cash in collection * 50% - residential mortgages * 100% - private sector debt, non-OECD bank debt (maturity over a year), real estate, plant and equipment, capital instruments issued at other banks. There is a significant point in this system, that the bank must maintain capital equal to at least 8% of its risk-weighted assets. I mean, if a bank has risk-weighted assets of $100 million,......

...Basel Committee on Banking Supervision reforms - Basel III Strengthens microprudential regulation and supervision, and adds a macroprudential overlay that includes capital buffers. Capital Pillar 1 Capital Quality and level of capital Greater focus on common equity. The minimum will be raised to 4.5% of riskweighted assets, after deductions. Capital loss absorption at the point of non-viability Contractual terms of capital instruments will include a clause that allows – at the discretion of the relevant authority – write-off or conversion to common shares if the bank is judged to be non-viable. This principle increases the contribution of the private sector to resolving future banking crises and thereby reduces moral hazard. Capital conservation buffer Comprising common equity of 2.5% of risk-weighted assets, bringing the total common equity standard to 7%. Constraint on a bank’s discretionary distributions will be imposed when banks fall into the buffer range. Countercyclical buffer Imposed within a range of 0-2.5% comprising common equity, when authorities judge credit growth is resulting in an unacceptable build up of systematic risk. Liquidity Pillar 2 Containing leverage Leverage ratio A non-risk-based leverage ratio that includes off-balance sheet exposures will serve as a backstop to the risk-based capital requirement. Also helps contain system wide build up of leverage. Pillar 3 Market discipline Revised Pillar 3 disclosures requirements The requirements......

...Basel II to Basel III: Changes and Requirements Hesham Hamdy Chief Risk Officer, Arab International Bank Nairobi, 7-8 March 2012 Basel; what is it? • A New Standard for the Measurement of Risks in Banks, and for the Allocation of Capital to cover those risks, published by the Basel Committee of G10 Central Banks. • What Does Basel Committee Do? - Acts as Think-Tank for banking regulators - Issues guidance on best practice for banks - Standards accepted worldwide - Generally incorporated in national banking regulations Basel I • Basel I was the round of deliberations by central banks from around the world, and in 1988, the Basel Committee (BCBS) in Basel, Switzerland, published a set of minimum capital requirements for banks. This was known as the 1988 Basel Accord, and was enforced by law in the Group of Ten (G-10) countries in 1992 . • Basel I primarily focused on credit risk. Assets of banks were classified and grouped in five categories according to credit risk, carrying risk weights of zero (for example home country sovereign debt), ten, twenty, fifty, and up to one hundred percent (this category has, as an example, most corporate debt). Basel I (continued) • Banks with international presence were required to hold capital equal to 8 % of the risk-weighted assets. • Basel I was then widely viewed as outmoded because the world has changed as financial corporations, financial innovation and risk management have developed. Therefore, a more comprehensive set......

...Belakang munculnya Basel II Basel I mengelompokkan nasabah ke dalam kelompok-kelompok yang menggambarkan tipe kesamaan debitur. Nasabah dengan tipe yang sama akan memiliki persyaratan modal yang sama tanpa memperhatikan perbedaan yang potensial pada kemampuan pembayaran kredit dan risiko yang dimiliki oleh masing-masing individu nasabah. Sejalan dengan banyaknya inovasi keuangan, dan produk-produk yang ada di dunia perbankan semakin berkembang, maka semakin banyak pula risiko risiko yang muncul. Dan risiko-risiko ini tidak diatur dalam Basel I, sehingga dikembangkanlah konsep permodalan dan risiko perbankan yang baru, yang lebih dikenal dengan Basel II. Tentang Basel II Basel II dibuat berdasarkan struktur dasar the Basel I. Basel II memberikan kerangka perhitungan modal yang bersifat lebih sensitif terhadap risiko serta memberikan insentif terhadap peningkatan kualitas penerapan manajemen risiko di bank. Hal ini dicapai dengan cara penyesuaian persyaratan modal dengan risiko dari kerugian kredit dan juga dengan memperkenalkan perubahan perhitungan modal dari eksposur yang disebabkan oleh risiko dari kerugian akibat kegagalan operasional. Basel II bertujuan meningkatkan keamanan dan kesehatan sistem keuangan, dengan menitikberatkan pada tiga pilar, yakni pilar pertama, perhitungan permodalan yang berbasis risiko; pilar kedua, supervisory review process; dan pilar ketiga, market discipline.

Evaluating Basel

...Weighted Assets A) HISTORY OF BASEL: The Basel system historically Basel capital weighting in place from 1992 Capital regulations under Basel I came into effect in December 1992 (after development and consultations since 1988). The aims were: first, to require banks to maintain enough capital to absorb losses without causing systemic problems, and second, to level the playing field internationally (to avoid competitiveness conflicts). A minimum ratio of 4% for Tier 1 capital (which should mainly be equity less goodwill) to risk-weighted assets (RWA) and 8% for Tier 1 and Tier 2 capital. A ‘revised framework’ known as Basel II was released in June 2004 after many issues with Basel I, most notably that regulatory arbitrage was rampant. Basel I gave banks the ability to control the amount of capital they required by shifting between on-balance sheet assets with different weights, and by securitising assets and shifting them off balance sheet – a form of disintermediation. Banks quickly accumulated capital well in excess of the regulatory minimum and capital requirements, which, in effect, had no constraining impact on bank risk taking. Basel I and II fail to stop global crisis. As the centrepiece for capital regulation to avoid crises the Basel approach has failed in its 1st and 2nd formulations and the world is still dealing with the after effects of the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Pillar 1 of the Basel II system defines minimum......

...Basel I The Basel Accords are some of the most influential—and misunderstood—agreements in modern international finance. Drafted in 1988 and 2004, Basel I and II have ushered in a new era of international banking cooperation. Through quantitative and technical benchmarks, both accords have helped harmonize banking supervision, regulation, and capital adequacy standards across the eleven countries of the Basel Group and many other emerging market economies. On the other hand, the very strength of both accords—their quantitative and technical focus—limits the understanding of these agreements within policy circles, causing them to be misinterpreted and misused in many of the world’s political economies. Moreover, even when the Basel accords have been applied accurately and fully, neither agreement has secured long-term stability within a country’s banking sector. Therefore, a full understanding of the rules, intentions, and shortcomings of Basel I and II is essential to assessing their impact on the international financial system. This paper aims to do just that—give a detailed, non-technical assessment of both Basel I and Basel II, and for both developed and emerging markets, show the status, intentions, criticisms, and implications of each accord. Basel I Soon after the creation of the Basel Committee, its eleven member states (known as the G-10) began to discuss a formal standard to ensure the proper......
