Financial capital regulation drives almost every aspect of the financial markets, from the structures of financial groups and the way they raise capital to the development of investment structures and financial engineering such as derivatives, securitisations, structured finance, creditderivatives, repos and stock lending. This new edition of the leading guide on the structure of bank financial regulation is invaluable for lawyers and other non-statisticians interested in the regulatory drivers which shape modern financial transactions and techniques. The legal and regulatory principles which underlie the regulationsare articulated here in a structured and accessible format without formulae. The first edition of International Regulation of Banking based on Basel II has now been updated in this second edition to take Basel III into account. There is clear sign-posting on what is current and what will beimplemented after 2013 for Basel III, and explanation of the new liquidity and leverage requirements which Basel III will impose on banks.The Basel III proposals provide rules for short and long-term liquidity, cleared derivatives, and revised rules for trading book, and securitisation and risk retention. Although not yet enacted in national law, banks and their legal advisors need to be preparing for compliance under the forthcomingrequirements. This book assists with that process by analysing the impact of complex risk calculations, and explaining the principles of regulatory capital.
