The financial crisis that began in 2007 has led to a sea-change in the regulation of the banking and insurance sectors. The impact of the economic environment and the regulatory changes on financial institutions is unprecedented. In response to the deficiencies in financial regulation revealed by this crisis, the Basel Committee on Banking Regulation set their global regulatory standards for banks in stone in the form of the Basel III guidelines, published in December 2010.
Insurance companies, which are increasingly regulated like banks, have been implementing the Solvency II Directive in Europe or its components in North America (which are considered parallel to the Basel guidelines). Both the banking and insurance sectors will be affected by Phase II of The International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS), providing common ground between the two. Adapting to Basel III and the Financial Crisis presents an integrated view of these two industries, providing the reader with a comprehensive guide to the complexities of the new regulations while focusing on solutions rather than problems.
As a result of Basel III and Solvency II, all financial institutions will have to re-think their business planning and strategic management practices whilst also trying to meet their income needs. Adapting to Basel III and the Financial Crisis examines how the financial sector is tackling these challenges, drawing on a variety of examples from the banking and insurance industries.
Bogie Ozdemir and Peter Miu combine their experiences in banking, insurance, and academia, providing a balanced combination of both hands-on experience and theoretical reasoning. The authors demonstrate how best to implement these regulations on a practical level, explaining the organizational (re)alignments to ensure that the necessary changes are made.
The authors equip the reader with the tools to enhance their capital management and business mix optimization processes in order to cope with the rigors of the new regulatory landscape, with key topics including:
• Integrated Capital Management;
• ICAAP and ORSA Design;
• Risk Appetite;
• Economic Capital for Defaulted Loans;
• Performance Management;
• Capital Planning and Budgeting;
• Economic Capital for Insurance Companies;
• RAROC and Loan Specific Hurdle Rate;
• Evolving Role of the Risk Function and Organization Re-design; and
• Procyclicality Management.
Adapting to Basel III and the Financial Crisis is aimed at all risk and capital management practitioners in banks and insurance companies, as well as national and international regulators of financial institutions and Basel II, Basel III, and Solvency II implementing practitioners.
