Research and Markets: Basel II - a catalyst for a whole redesign of the banking process

DUBLIN, Ireland, July 15, 2004 -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Basel II - An Added Value Approach to Implementation to their offering.

Basel II is controversial and complex. The Accord demands new standards of risk management and capital efficiency. The new Capital Accord will change the business and language in banking forever and needs to be understood and acted upon at all levels from the board down. Basel II is a catalyst for a whole redesign of the banking process and is an opportunity for you to re-assess your strategy in light of the capital adequacy requirements of different business lines. It is a chance to gain competitive advantage by making the most of the efficiencies in risk management and to move your banking processes onto a new level.

Preparing for Basel II - An added value approach to implementation, a new management report focuses on the actual implementation of the new Accord and provides the very latest information on the status of Basel II requirements including the late adjustments to the treatment of expected and unexpected losses. It is the first report of its kind to explain the valued added approach to the implementation of Basel II. It focuses on how banks can use the new risk measurement rules to inform their business decision-making, facilitate RAROC (Risk Adjusted Return On Capital) modelling and help form the single customer view.

The report illustrates that those banks that practise the most advanced risk measurement methods will benefit from lower levels of regulatory capital. It also shows how these companies will be able to form the single customer view, introduce risk-based pricing and use risk intelligence to inform every business decision they make.
