Capital Assessment Platform

One of the single most important developments in the area of risk management for banks is the new regulatory capital adequacy framework popularly known as Basel II issued by Basel Committee for Banking Supervision (BCBS) in 2006.

Since then most regulators globally have adopted this framework. Basel II framework brought about a paradigm shift in perspective regarding risk management domain. Regulators globally were suggested to adopt new risk elements and philosophies closer to economic concepts of risk and capital. Risk management became a strategic function which set the stage for convergence of regulatory and economic capital. Implementation of Basel II triggered novel challenges around data management, technology, business processes and availability of capital. Banks were encouraged to adopt and implement advanced risk concepts around objective statistical measures for estimation of capital for various risks, hitherto restricted only to credit and market risk.
