Whilst the Basel III reforms have been finalized and are being progressively implemented around the world, there are various additional regulatory initiatives that are still being considered and formulated.

Among these is a major international debate on RWA methodologies, including revisions to the Standardised Approaches for various risk-types, the potential advent of a new Capital Floor, a potential higher Leverage Ratio requirement, and new constraints on the use of banks’ internal models. The interplay of these various initiatives stands to have significant impacts on banks’ balance sheets, both through direct impacts on capital requirements as well as the downstream impacts on banks’ strategies and incentives.

Concurrently, the FSB is working to finalize the Recovery and Resolution framework for the 30 Globally Systemically Important Banks (GSIBs), including new Total Loss-Absorbing Capacity (TLAC) requirements, with the potential for this to cascade through to domestic major banks.

Other issues with an increasing focus in the global debate include international comparisons and the convergence or divergence of national rules, conduct and culture , and central counterparties.
