The banking regulatory capital requirements have changed significantly over the last decade. Since the first Basel Regulatory Framework launched in 1988, the Basel Committee on banking supervision has introduced several reforms to ensure prudential regulation of banks.
Set to take effect from the 1st of January 2023, Basel IV is increasingly seen as an entirely new framework in comparison to Basel III.
Understanding Basel IV
One of the key objectives of the Basel IV framework is to restore credibility in banks’ calculation of risk-weighted assets by constraining banks’ use of internal risk models. Several reforms were included in various categories, including a standardised approach for credit risk, the quantification of CVA risk and operational risk approaches, an enhancement to leverage ratio framework, finalisation of output floor, and more.
In order to be fully prepared for Basel IV adoption, it’s critical for banks and financial institutions to understand the changes from the previously implemented Basel III framework.
