Assessing the regulatory impact credit risk going beyond Basel II

Assessing the regulatory impact credit risk going beyond Basel II The new capital accord, otherwise known as Basel II, from the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, addresses the issue of financial risk. Within the latest version of the new accord and numerous consultation papers, the committee has reinforced its emphasis on risk management, encouraging banks to improve their risk assessment capabilities. Basel II attempts to accomplish this by closely aligning capital with modern risk management best practices, and by ensuring that the emphasis on risk makes its way onto supervisory practices and market discipline. Thus, regulatory pressure is, and will remain over the near future, a key driver of risk management systems development across market, credit and operational risk. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Risk Finance Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The new capital accord, otherwise known as Basel II, from the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, addresses the issue of financial risk. Within the latest version of the new accord and numerous consultation papers, the committee has reinforced its emphasis on risk management, encouraging banks to improve their risk assessment capabilities. Basel II attempts to accomplish this by closely aligning capital with modern risk management best practices, and by ensuring that the emphasis on risk makes its way onto supervisory practices and market discipline. Thus, regulatory pressure is, and will remain over the near future, a key driver of risk management systems development across market, credit and operational risk.
