Riskpro Basel III OfferingOverview of Basel III: Issues and ChallengesRBI’s latest guidelines on Capital Adequacy issued on May 2, 2012 require Banks to comprehensivelyaddress various elements relating to capital, liquidity, models, capital adequacy and overall riskmanagement framework. The regulatory framework requires compliance with Basel III guidelines ina phased manner beginning from January 1, 2013.Clearly Basel III is creating more issues and challenges than opportunities, or atleast in the shortterm. Profitability, business strategies, competition, liquidity, capital raising efforts are all dependentupon a number of variables.

We map Bank’s compliance against each point of the Basel III requirements and issue a Diagnostic Gap report 3. Impact study for major areas such as Capital Adequacy, capital requirements, liquidity risk ratios etc is carried out. Results are presented to the Bank’s Board for necessary action. Board members can then take action in the form of establishing business strategies. 4. Roadmap for Basel III compliance is then defined based on overall timelines outlined by RBI. 5. Project execution and implementation is aligned to these timelines to ensure timely compliance as well as ensure that the Bank is not unnecessary implementing components required for compliance much later in the program 6. Monthly status report is presented to Senior Management. 7. All regulatory changes, circulars and action plans are communicated to the Bank and incorporated during the course of the project.
