Basel IV Workshop – Unveils Strategies for Banking Compliance

Thursday, October 5th, 2023

In a bid to demystify the intricacies of Basel IV, Shasat, a prominent player in financial education and consultancy, has announced an insightful two-day, in-person workshop aimed at clarifying the capital and liquidity requirements under the Basel IV framework, also known as Basel 3.1. This comprehensive workshop is set to provide bankers and financial professionals with a deep understanding of Basel IV and strategies to ensure compliance.

Originally slated for implementation on January 1, 2022, the Basel IV framework’s rollout was postponed to January 1, 2023, due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. However, a recent update has revealed that the EU and UK will adopt Basel IV on January 1, 2025. These regulations, formulated by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in 2017, encompass significant changes to global capital requirements, particularly concerning credit risk assessment.

Basel IV introduces measures aimed at standardizing and harmonizing how banks calculate risk, rather than simply increasing capital requirements. These reforms will affect various aspects, including internal risk models, output floors, leverage ratios, credit valuation adjustments (CVA), and operational risk frameworks. The impact of Basel IV is expected to vary across regions due to differences in the utilization of internal risk models by banks.

Shasat’s workshop is tailored to provide a deep dive into the key components of Basel IV, encompassing topics such as the standardized approach for credit risk, the internal ratings-based approach, the output floor, and the new market risk framework. Additionally, the workshop will shed light on liquidity requirements, including the net stable funding ratio and the liquidity coverage ratio, and offer strategies to ensure compliance.

Throughout the program, participants will engage with real-world case studies, practical exercises, and examples to grasp the tangible implications of Basel IV for their respective organizations. The workshop will analyze success stories of banks that have adeptly navigated the new regulatory landscape, identifying crucial best practices.
