Basel II is the second of the Basel Accords, which are recommendations on banking laws and regulations issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. The purpose of Basel II is to create an international standard that banking regulators can use when creating regulations about how much capital banks need to put aside to guard against the types of financial and operational risks banks face.
We believe that such an international standard can help protect your financial system from the types of problems that might arise should a major bank or a series of banks collapse. In practice, we attempt to accomplish this by setting up rigorous risk and capital management requirements designed to ensure that a bank holds capital reserves appropriate to the risk the bank exposes itself to through its lending and investment practices. The Basel II implementation:
- Ensures that capital allocation is more risk sensitive;
- Separates operational risk from credit risk, and quantifying both;
- Attempts to align economic and regulatory capital more closely to reduce the scope for regulatory arbitrage.
