Evolving Banking Regulation: Part 1 – From Design to Implementation 

Regulatory pressures continue to present challenges to the management of banks. To help our clients stay informed of relevant developments in a timely manner, we are publishing Evolving Banking Regulation as a series of papers rather than an annual report.


The first in the series, Evolving Banking Regulation: From Design to Implementation, examines recent and forthcoming banking regulation and sets the stage for further chapters focusing on specific issues.


The detail of regulatory reforms is beginning to become clearer, as is the direction of travel of the remaining reforms. The volume of unfinished business is diminishing as more regulations are moving through the design and calibration stages to implementation, and fewer regulatory reform initiatives remain at an earlier development stage. However, some uncertainty inevitably remains regarding the prospective appearance of new initiatives. Meanwhile, banks continue to grapple with the complexity of keeping track of and adjusting to the sheer volume of measures and the multiple interactions between them.


This report focuses on five emerging areas where banks will need to respond to the uncertain evolution of regulatory and supervisory developments:


  • Macro-prudential policy
  • Risk weighted assets
  • Comprehensive Assessment
  • Supervision
  • MREL and TLAC
