Finance Forums are part day events which give academics and practitioners the opportunity to hear from leading practitioners, local and international academics on current issues facing the finance community.

The Global Financial Crisis exposed a number of flaws in the regulation of capital adequacy and in bank capital adequacy. It has prompted a number of proposed changes in the Basel II capital requirements, including support for the introduction of a minimum leverage ratio in addition to the risk-weighted requirement.

Proposals for “contingent capital” requirements have also been made by a number of prominent commentators.

This session will review recent developments in bank capital adequacy and examine the various proposals for change and likely implications.

Prof Kevin Davis will deliver a paper followed by discussion with industry experts.
