IFLR Bank Capital Seminar - Overview

February 26, 2014 - America Square Conference Centre, London

The global regulatory response to the financial crisis is rewriting the foundations of bank capital rules. As a result, IFLR launched its first Bank Capital Seminar in London on February 26, 2014 to help over 150 delegates structure their next regulatory capital deal.

Bail-in tools, Basel III’s leverage ratio, and additional requirements for systemically important institutions are just some of the new factors banks must consider when rebuilding their balance sheets.

Capital requirements have never been greater or more complex. Implementation delays and national finishes, for example, are creating discrepancies between country regimes, while the Basel Committee continues to consult on changes to the original Basel III framework.

For some banks, this uncertain climate has led to a period of experimentation in capital issuances. New instruments have emerged over the past few years that are designed to meet incoming rules. But until the regulatory environment becomes clearer, standardised structures will be a rarity, and capital requirements will be difficult to navigate.

IFLR brought together banker’s counsel, key individuals from structuring and syndicate desks, insurance companies, funds and private practice lawyers to discuss these important topics.
