Basel III Liquidity Regulation and Its ImplicationseBook - 2014
Liquidity involves the degree to which an asset can be bought or sold in the market without affecting its price. The 2007 to 2009 financial crisis was characterized by a decrease in liquidity and necessitated the introduction of Basel III capital and liquidity regulation in 2010. In this book, we apply such regulation on a broad cross-section of countries in order to understand and demonstrate the implications of Basel III.This book summarizes the defining features of the Basel I, II, and III Accords and their perceived shortcomings as well as the role of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) in promulgating international banking regulation. In addition, we compare the accords in terms of their ability to determine the capital adequacy of banks and assign risk-weights to assets.
