The comprehensive set of regulatory reforms introduced by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) to strengthen the regulation, supervision and risk management of the banking sector in the light of the 2008 Financial Crisis (collectively referred to as Basel III) is expected to radically change the banking business model in the next few years. The objective of this course is to introduce the far-reaching reforms of Basel III.  While Asian banks are generally well positioned to meet these requirements, there are issues and concerns that could have significant consequences to the Asian banking business model.

This course will guide through various issues of the 2008 Financial Crisis and how these issues led to the reforms introduced in Basel III.  It enumerates the various reforms introduced by Basel III particularly in the area of capital and liquidity and how these reforms will impact the banking industry.


At the end of this course, you will:

1.  Understand the context in which Basel III was formed and how the 2008 Financial Crisis influenced the reforms introduced in Basel III;

2.  Articulate the general principles of the reforms introduced by Basel III on the quality and quantity of capital;

3.  Understand how leverage contributed to the 2008 Financial Crisis and how Basel III  intends to rectify this;

4.  Understand the global liquidity standards introduced by Basel III and how these standards will radically affect the strategic choices of banks in the future;

5.  Understand the issue of procyclicality and how the introduction of countercyclical buffers will influence this issue;

6.  Appreciate how Basel III intends to discuss the too-big-to-fail issue by introducing  reforms on systematically important financial institutions; and

7.  Appreciate the various reforms that Bank for International Settlements (BIS) intend to introduce reforms on the trading book, expansion of risk coverage and address the limits of value-at-risk models.
