Chapter

Abstract

The current chapter describes the international bodies and the interaction amongst them that leads to the development of international banking supervision standards. It also depicts the market or regulatory failures that contributed to the creation of new supervisory standards and the significant changes that flagged each reform. In particular, it describes the evolution of banking standards from the Basel Capital Accord (aka Basel I) to Basel III.

Also, it elaborates on the final Basel III amendments on each of the risk categories (credit, market/credit valuation adjustments, and operational risk) compared to Basel III, in an attempt to assess the direction of the impact of such changes. Finally, it briefly presents the changes in the leverage ratio framework.
