Why the BCBS can’t say much about Asian lenders
Date: Dec 21, 2010   |   Author: Aditya Puri | member's Opinion
The Basel III rules about new global regulatory standards on bank capital adequacy and liquidity are finally here after several twists and turns. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) says that, as a result of its new definition of capital that introduces the new capital standard of common equity Tier 1 (CET1) and a modified version of what constitutes Tier 1 capital, banks’ gross common equity tier 1 ratio will drop 5.4 percentage points to 5.7% for ‘Group 1’ banks, those with Tier 1 capital of more than $4 billion, while the corresponding decline for ‘Group 2’ banks, with Tier 1 capital lesser than this amount, the drop is set to be 2.9 percentage points. In other words, the capital shortfall for Group1 lenders will fall short of anything between $220 billion at the BCBS’s prescribed lower limit of CET1 of 4.5% and $769 billion for the upper limit of 7%, as per the banks’ balance sheets at the end of 2009.
