Impact of Basel III on corporate banking relationship
While Basel III may restore the health of the financial markets and the banking industry in the long run, it will also have an impact on the real economy and business in the mean time. The economic impact of Basel III is often mentioned, but seldom analyzed in detail. This article assesses the potential impact of Basel III on companies and outlines some options that corporate treasurers and bankers can explore in order to minimize the effects.
Implications for high risk/high yield banking activities
The requirements to be introduced by Basel III will lead to higher capital ratios and adequate liquidity resources. They will make it necessary to adopt new strategies and innovative solutions to optimize balance sheets and sustain the profitability of banks. As such, banks will be forced to reconsider their product offerings and funding strategies pushed by the policymakers’ urge to a recapitalization of the banking sector.
