IIF Risk and Regulatory Capital Symposium Summary Note

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

The future of the regulatory capital framework and its main components, including the IRB framework, has been at the center of recent debate. With this symposium, the IIF aimed to promote discussions on ways to improve RWA and capital calculation methodologies and ensure the resilience of the Basel capital framework. It is critically important that regulators and industry invest the time to thoroughly explore these issues, and ensure the right final design and calibration of RWA and related Basel initiatives. The symposium also provided an opportunity to discuss the role of the industry in helping to restore the credibility of the risk-based capital framework, whilst preserving adequate risk-sensitivity.'
