Basel IV - Foundation

Basel IV encompasses more than just finalising Basel III – The implementation of CRR III/ CRD VI (Basel IV) 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.
