Basel II - Objective

Objective

The final version aims at:

  1. Ensuring that capital allocation is more risk sensitive;
  2. Enhance disclosure requirements which will allow market participants to assess the capital adequacy of an institution;
  3. Ensuring that credit risk, operational risk and market risk are quantified based on data and formal techniques;
  4. Attempting to align economic and regulatory capital more closely to reduce the scope for regulatory arbitrage.

While the final accord has largely addressed the regulatory arbitrage issue, there are still areas where regulatory capital requirements will diverge from the economic capital.

    Jean Ross Peterson (20th century)

    So much for Mrs. Hollis’ nine months of pain and 20 years of hope.

    I am not a great man, but sometimes I think the impersonal and objective equality of my talent and the sacrifices of it, in pieces, to preserve its essential value has some sort of epic grandeur.
