The Basel III framework is a central element of the Basel Committee`s response to the global financial crisis. It aims to address a number of shortcomings in the pre-crisis regulatory framework and forms the basis of a resilient banking system to avoid the accumulation of systemic vulnerabilities. At the end of 2017, the Basel Committee published the Basel III regulatory reforms outstanding after the crisis, the so-called Basel IV agreement. These will be implemented in the European Union in the next CRR3 being negotiated. The inclusion of the new Basel Agreement in 2021 in the European Capital Regulation (CRR) will have a significant impact on financial service providers subject to these rules. At present, the low level of risk in leasing portfolios is not sufficiently recognized, leading to largely overconservative capital requirements. Correcting this situation is a priority for Leaseurope. Basel4 round-up with key components, potential effects and measures for banks. We continue to update the poster to reflect changes to Basel IV Regulations – this version is correct from April 2018 – Leasing should no longer be treated as a bank credit (whether guaranteed by physical or unsecured guarantees), as the risks are totally different.
In order to identify the low risk profile of leasing, we have drawn up a series of regulatory proposals which we have shared with the European Commission, the European Parliament and the EU Member States in order to be taken into account in their negotiations on the next CRR3. On 7 December, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published its final documents on the Basel III reform, commonly referred to as Basel IV. We will not conduct a thorough review of the changes. It should be noted, however, that the effects of Basel IV may vary depending on the location, nature and business model of some banks. It is time for banks to develop their own capital management strategies to be ready for Basel IV. The development of these strategies requires considerable know-how and know-how. The Basel III standards addressed a number of shortcomings and served as the basis for a more resilient banking system. However, the ongoing Basel III reform and implementation are aimed at identifying other systemic weaknesses. The BCBS proposes a nine-year implementation schedule, which leaves plenty of time for preparation.
A five-year “phase-in” period would begin on January 1, 2022, with full implementation scheduled for January 1, 2027. For example, RWA operational risk, which, under the proposed framework, may be based exclusively on a bank`s revenues or may also reflect a bank`s individual loss history. Such national discretion (and possibly other changes) apply when the framework finally comes into force in a particular jurisdiction Several factors make it difficult to speculate at this stage on the final effects on Deutsche Bank. Firstly, it is not now possible to predict the impact of `national discretion` on the framework when they finally come into force in a given jurisdiction, particularly in the EU. In addition, the composition of our balance sheet can change significantly over the next nine years; In addition, we can generate and retain capital during this period to support our risk-weighted assets. The final transposition of prudential rules into binding law will be subject to the results of qIS legislation that banks pass on to their supervisory authorities. It is now up to the banking sector to participate and take into account the difficult consequences of the upcoming Basel III and Basel IV supervisory frameworks, in order to ensure a proportionate implementation of binding regulatory requirements across the sector. The reasons for the global financial crisis are quite complex.
