  • FSB urges more bank transparency
    The Financial Stability Board called for more transparency from banks regarding how well they stand up to Basel III capital rules and internal stress tests. "Rebuilding investors' confidence and trust in the banking industry is vital to the future health of the financial system," said a task force of the FSB, which also urged disclosure of off-balance-sheet entities. Complex accounting practices and such entities have been used in the past to avoid regulatory scrutiny. Bloomberg (10/29) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
