The Basel III framework strengthens risk-based capital regulation, regulatory supervision principles and risk management practices in the banking sector.

On the eve of the G-20 meetings in South Korea that are to ratify this new international framework, this note discusses the implications this new macro-prudential regulatory regime has on the future of banking, risk management, and risk managers.
