The biggest weakness of Basel III | Felix Salmon - 0 views

  • A few things. First I’m pretty sure nothing should be 0% risk weighted. Second, yes, risk weightings are going to continue to be a big part of the real problem. Third Basel III fails to address the issue of the hegemony of the ratings agency cartel. On another note, I remain fairly convinced that there isn’t any way to completely remove the chance that banks blow up. Banks are completely unlike any other corporate structure – they are inherently levered and can therefore be wiped out by a nasty run on the bank, even if perfectly solvent. So what’s the answer? The minute we admit that TBTF exists, we have to charge for the privilege of being TBTF rather than try to regulate it out. Insurance premiums payable to a pre-funded disaster recovery fund, that are heavily geared to (true) leverage and spiral exponentially above 30x leverage sounds like a good start. Throw in additional premia based on the % of revenues from trading, the type of funding that props up the balance sheet and the liquidity of underlying assets, and Bob’s your uncle, we might have the beginnings of something that works.

      En pragmatisk model, som man kan undre sig over ikke bliver overvejet seriøst (TBTF = too big to fail).
    Interessant diskussion af Basel III med folk, der virker som om de ved, hvad de taler om.

  • De viktigste prosessene globalt skjer i regi av G20 og Baselkomiteen for banktilsyn. Baselkomiteen for banktilsyn har vedtatt nye retningslinjer for strengere kapital- og likviditetskrav for banker, de såkalte Basel III-standardene, 16. desember 2010. EU-kommisjonen arbeider, som representanten Sanner viser til, med en tredje revisjon av de såkalte kapitalkravsdirektivene, i tråd med Basel III-anbefalingene. Finanstilsynet har vurdert konsekvensene av strengere krav til kvalitet på kapitalen i bankene i det nye Basel III-regelverket og det korresponderende kommende CRD IV-regelverket som begrenset for norske banker.
