What is Basel III?
Born out of the global financial crisis, Basel III is an international regulatory accord intended to mitigate risk within the banking system and make banks more resilient to financial stress, thereby preventing system-wide failure. Key requirements cover leverage ratios and reserve capital (Source: Investopedia). The stated purpose of Basel III regulation is to prevent the repeat of another global financial crisis event.
