An Introduction to Basel II

In the midst of my relocation back to Bangalore (yippee!), I haven’t had much time to blog. The last few days have been pretty hectic. I’ll be submitting my last assignment in an hour’s time and will be making my last presentation tomorrow morning – we’re presenting a case analysis on IT failure at Nestle and McDonald’s.

In the meantime, here’s another presentation for your learning; this time it’s about Basel II. It’s a topic everyone needs to be aware of and hence a MUST read.

Says Wikipedia:

Basel II, also called The New Accord (correct full name is the International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards – A Revised Framework) is the second Basel Accord and represents recommendations by bank supervisors and central bankers from the 13 countries making up the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) to revise the international standards for measuring the adequacy of a bank’s capital. It was created to promote greater consistency in the way banks and banking regulators approach risk management across national borders.

Our professor for this course was Mr. Girish VS. His depth of knowledge about the banking industry is astonishing. Watch out for more knowledge from his class.
