Basel III will not only require banks to maintain higher capital levels, but it will also modify the eligibility criteria for regulatory capital in ways that will have lasting repercussions for financial institutions. In this Webcast, we will look at the legal requirements in the proposed capital rules, including the criteria for Tier 1 and Tier 2 capital securities. The rules will have an impact on the market dynamics for capital securities post the final rules, and our panel of experts will address the latest developments and open questions in that arena. We will also delve into the differences in implementation between Europe and the U.S., with an eye on investor risk factors in transatlantic capital-raising exercises.

Join us on Thursday, August 16 at 11:00AM EDT for this informative webcast.
