Basel IV introduced by CRD VI / CRR III

Basel IV encompasses more than just finalising Basel III – The implementation of CRR III/ CRD VI (Basel IV) in 2025 in the EU represents one of the biggest challenges for financial institutions in the coming years.

The introduction of new rules concerning the calculation of risk-weighted assets, and thus the capital ratios of all banks, has a fundamental impact on the development of banks' strategies and shapes their future business models.

Strategic, structural and operational adjustments are required. Indeed, optimised implementation of all changes related to Basel IV at the right time requires a detailed knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the reforms. Regulatory change is a complex challenge that can only be addressed with a coherent and comprehensive approach.

This training course is designed as an essential step to grasping Basel IV’s full implications. It is based on some level of theory but also case studies. The training will integrate a significant amount of market feedback and insight.

To take the most of this module, a minimum knowledge about Basel IV is preferable, for example through our Basel IV - Foundation module.
