Basel 3 Advisory and Implementation 

The recent financial crisis reinforced the critical importance of capital, both its capacity to absorb losses and its interaction with liquidity.

The Basel 3 framework introduces another major change in capital/liquidity standards. While the official implementation deadlines may seem a long way off, market and competitor pressure is already driving major change. Firms must engage with Basel 3 now to put themselves in the best competitive position in the post-crisis landscape.
