Strengthening the Resilience of the Banking Sector
by Basel Committee on Banking Supervision
Executive Summary: This consultative document presents the Basel Committee's proposals to strengthen global capital and liquidity regulations with the goal of promoting a more resilient banking sector. The objective of the Basel Committee's reform package is to improve the banking sector's ability to absorb shocks arising from financial and economic stress, whatever the source, thus reducing the risk of spillover from the financial sector to the real economy.
The proposals set out in this paper are a key element of the Committee's comprehensive reform package to address the lessons of the crisis. Through its reform package, the Committee also aims to improve risk management and governance as well as strengthen banks' transparency and disclosures. Moreover, the reform package includes the Committee's efforts to strengthen the resolution of systemically significant cross-border banks. The Committee's reforms are part of the global initiatives to strengthen the financial regulatory system that have been endorsed by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the G20 Leaders.
