This newly updated module focuses on the changes to Basel III and the new proposals from the EU Commission. The third of the Basel Accords and EU proposals were developed in response to the deficiencies in financial regulation that were revealed by the financial crisis. Basel III and EU proposals strengthen bank capital requirements and introduce new regulatory requirements on bank liquidity and bank leverage.
