In December 2012, the Bank for International Settlements published a Consultative Document on a proposed reform of the risk-based capital requirements for the banking book for securitization. Comments were due on March 15.

Please join us for our next GFMI teleconference where we will briefly summarize the Consultative Document and then discuss some of the more challenging issues that it raises. The discussion will include the following topics:

  • Alternate hierarchies
  • Capital requirements
  • Resecuritizations
  • Floor and cap and risk sensitivity
  • Tranche Maturities
