In December the BCBS put out the new Basel framework for comment. This new regulatory capital regime would be an important change, requiring that banks raise their regulatory capital levels, maintain higher tier one specifically, provide greater transparency and account for derivatives and securitisation. The proposals are consistent with the statements made by the G20; however, considered with other regulatory reforms in the US and Europe, the new Basel framework will require that financial institutions re-think many aspects of their operations and financing plans.
