The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is revising methodologies for the determination of capital requirements. While rules introduced by Basel III increased the amount of capital that banks must hold, recent developments proved that even stricter rules should be applied. This is where the Basel IV framework was introduced.

In ‘The evolution of Basel IV: implications and implementation challenges’ we solely focus on Basel IV, i.e.: its original foundations, the challenges under Basel III and the current Standardised approach, capital requirements for each of the revisions, timelines, implementation challenges and overall implications.
