Capital and liquidity issues are major board agenda items for banks worldwide as intense scrutiny of banks and their risk profiles continues. Regulatory reforms such as Basel III put additional responsibilities and pressures on banks, their directors and their finance and compliance teams.
From January 1, 2013, Basel III requires all new non-equity capital to have a new bail-in feature. Banks are expected to have a ‘stable funding structure' to meet its liquidity requirements in times of stress.
The implications for banking business models, their shareholders and customers are significant. The requirement for higher levels of capital, greater liquidity and less risk has created new challenges for senior decision makers.
