ABOUT THE BOOK
the most ambitious international agreement on banks’ risk management
This book is concerned with seven aspects of Basel 2: (1) its rationale and origins; (2) the process leading to the agreement, including the way in which problems and criticisms which emerged during drafting were handled; (3) data on the introduction of Basel 2 in different countries; (4) the quantitative exercises designed to estimate Basel 2’s effects; (5) the global pattern of introduction in relation to Basel 2’s objectives; (6) the way in which Basel 2 addresses the control of banking risks; and (7) the agenda for possible future actions concerning subjects closely related to Basel 2.
