12-Apr (BIS) — The Basel Committee published today the results of its Basel III monitoring exercise. The study is based on rigorous reporting processes set up by the Committee to periodically review the implications of the Basel III standards for financial markets. A total of 212 banks participated in the study, including 103 Group 1 banks (ie those that have Tier 1 capital in excess of €3 billion and are internationally active) and 109 Group 2 banks (ie all other banks).
…The aggregate shortfall of required stable funding is €2.78 trillion.
PG View: That’s one heck of a shortfall.
