Basel Committee rejects national "waivers" from capital rules

IACPM Weekly SmartBrief | Apr 28, 2015

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has found much variation in the level of capital that banks hold against loans because of national "waivers" from capital rules. The regulator has decided to override some waivers to restore investor confidence in banks' benchmark ratios. "National discretion allows countries to adapt the Basel standards to reflect differences in local financial systems," according to the committee. "However, the use of national discretions can also impair comparability across jurisdictions and increase variability in risk-weighted assets."
