Basel II
Basel II Consultants Independent Advisor Compliance Capital Adequacy Summary


The Basel Capital Accord (Basel II) guidelines promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) establish capital adequacy requirements and supervisory standards for banks to be implemented by 2007 and is structured in terms of three pillars. Basel II compliance is probably the single greatest challenge – and opportunity – for banks during the next few years.

The proposed new Basel II is designed to facilitate a more comprehensive, sophisticated and risk-sensitive approach for banks to calculate regulatory capital. The proposals will enable banks to align regulatory requirements more closely with their internal risk measurement and to improve operational processes.


The 1998 Basel Accord

The first Basel Accord was published in 1988 by the BIS. It introduced a conceptually simple risk based approach. It requires banks to hold minimum capital of 8% of risk-weighted assets as a cushion against credit risk and market risk. This first Basel Accord was then amended in 1996 to allow banks to use internal risk models for market risk.

The 1998 Basel Accord is recognized as an international standard and has been implemented in over 100 countries.
The new Basel 2 provides an opportunity for banks to reduce their economic and regulatory capital through efficient data management and reporting. Basel II also provides a unique opportunity for banks to modernize and upgrade their risk practices, policies and technology so that they can manage their credit, market and operational risk.
