Basel IV - BCBS finalises reforms on Risk Weighted Assets (RWA)
On December 7th, 2017 the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published finalised rules on a number of topics concerning the calculation of risk weighted assets. These new rules will fundamentally change the methods and approaches used when calculating RWA and capital ratios for all banks, big and small, complex or not, in the coming years. While officially termed the finalisation of Basel III, the industry has long since started to call the package of reforms Basel IV, to take account of the huge scale of changes. This brochure will give you an overview of Basel IV and how banks can deal with the ensuing challenges.
