What is the Basel III Endgame?

Basel III is a set of measures developed by the Basel Committee in the years following the global financial crisis of 2007-09.

The measures, rolled out over several years, aim to strengthen the regulation, supervision, and risk management of banks.

The final set of rules has been dubbed the “Basel III Endgame.”

These rules focus on the amount of capital that banks must have against the credit, operational, and market riskiness of their business.
