This report reviews the Basel Committee's work since the global financial crisis to strengthen the international regulatory framework for banks. The measures introduced by the Committee include:

  • increasing the quality and level of capital;
  • enhancing risk capture;
  • constraining leverage and excessive concentration;
  • adding a macroprudential dimension to the regulatory framework;
  • addressing liquidity risk; and
  • enhancing supervision and promoting consistent global implementation of the Basel framework.

The report also provides an update on the Committee's substantial progress towards finalising its post-crisis reforms, which includes revising the standardised approaches for determining regulatory capital and measures to reduce excessive variability in risk-weighted assets. The Committee is well on track to finalise the remaining elements of the regulatory reform agenda for global banks.
