New revisions to the Standardized Approach for Measuring Credit Risk
24-26 November 2019 Cairo - Egypt Ramses Hilton Hotel
A key objective of the Finalizing Basel III revisions is to reduce excessive variability of risk-weighted assets (RWAs). It addresses a number of shortcomings with the pre-crisis regulatory framework and provides a regulatory foundation for a resilient banking system that supports the real economy. A prudent and credible calculation of RWAs is an integral element of the risk-weighted capital framework.
Banks’ reported risk-weighted capital ratios should be sufficiently transparent and comparable to permit stakeholders to assess their risk profile.
