Basel III, the subject is all over the press but few banks and investment firms have so far tried to assess its impacts. The changes introduced by Basel III and CRD (Capital Requirement Directive) 4, its European Union implementation, will have fundamental implications for banks and investment firms. Strategic, structural and operational adjustments are likely to be required. Indeed, Basel III must not be considered as a new version of Basel II, as some of the changes are paramount, in particular with the introduction of strict liquidity requirements, tougher capital definitions and the introduction of a leverage ratio.
Regulatory change is a complex challenge that can only be addressed with a coherent and comprehensive approach. However, despite complexity and uncertainty, there are practical and concrete actions that can be taken now to prepare for a Basel III world.
This training course is designed as the first but essential step to grasping Basel III’s full implications. It will be based around some level of theory but also around case studies. The training will also integrate a significant amount of market feedback and insight.
