On October 31, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision announced its net-stable funding ratio rule.The rule will force banks to take into account the maturity of their assets when making choices about their financing.

But it’s also significant because its publication essentially marks the end of the Basel committee’s regulatory reform agenda. Begun in 2010 and undertaken to promote a more resilient banking sector following the financial crisis, Basel III’s major requirements have now all been announced.

Taking this milestone as a starting point, this month’s Poll asks whether the committee’s requirements are sufficient to prevent another crisis.

Have Basel III capital requirements gone far enough? Or does more need to be done?

Vote on this month’s Quick Poll box, which is featured on the right of IFLR’s homepage. All votes are anonymous. The results will be posted in the December/January issue of IFLR magazine.
