11 May Revised Capital Requirements Regulation Rules: CRR2 Reforms And Beyond In The Age Of COVID-19
“Revised Capital Requirements Regulation Rules: CRR2 Reforms And Beyond In The Age Of COVID-19” is a paper that outlines upcoming changes to regulations, CRR2 reforms, and the resulting challenges faced by financial institutions. AxiomSL offers insight into best practices for identifying and resolving the challenges of CRR2 reforms, and creating efficiencies when addressing the ever-changing regulatory landscape, particularly in the age of COVID-19 and a difficult environment.
The expansion of Basel III and accompanying new calculation rules mean that financial institutions are feeling the pressures of accommodating changes occurring in both the near and medium term. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on organizations around the world that were already grappling with approaching Basel deadlines. In response to the needs of firms currently focusing on addressing the COVID-19 crisis, the Basel Committee’s oversight body, the Group of Governors and Heads of Supervision (GHOS), has deferred the implementation dates to 2023 for outstanding Basel standards. The move acknowledges the severity of the coronavirus-driven global crisis and gives financial institutions a reprieve. This reprieve represents a golden opportunity for financial institutions to explore strategically addressing CRR2 reforms and Basel expansion, and implementing resilient best practices.
It is now more critical than ever for firms to utilize a holistic and technology-driven approach when maximizing this strategic opportunity. The new Basel-driven requirements involve more than a simple finalization of Basel III reforms, and the rules are so comprehensive that they have been informally dubbed “Basel IV”. Financial institutions must keep current with this new scenario and prepare for its ramifications amid quickly evolving global regulations. The impacts of COVID-19 on individual organizations will be determined by their portfolios and business models. And preparing for the COVID-19 adjusted new deadlines in 2023 will require thoughtful planning to assess the impact of the crisis, implement new data management and reporting processes, streamline existing ones, and make informed business decisions.
In this paper, AxiomSL discusses the challenges of CRR2 reforms and Basel expansion, and how best to strategically address them:
