Even before the recent economic downturn, there had been continuing efforts to revise capital requirements of global banking firms through the Basel Committee of the Bank for International Settlements (Basel). The financial meltdown accelerated these efforts and led to Dodd-Frank –the most sweeping regulatory reforms in nearly 100 years. Through provisions such as the Collins amendment and enhanced prudential standards for significantly important financial institutions (so-called SIFIs), Dodd-Frank fundamentally changes capital requirements of U.S. banking institutions and may impose capital requirements on non-banking companies previously exempt from the capital rules. In addition, enhanced supervisory efforts (like stress-testing) and new capital and liquidity standards imposed under Basel III are causing financial firms to reevaluate the sufficiency of their capital in relation to their assets, activities and underlying risks. This event will provide an overview of the most significant changes expected from Basel and Dodd-Frank, including:

It will also discuss the implications of these changes, including:

A panel of industry leaders and governance experts is being assembled by the Knowledge Group to discuss these sweeping capital developments and what they mean for the financial services industry. The presentation will be aired in a LIVE two-hour Webcast.
