The securitisation market in South Africa continues to grow in both size and innovation. This publication therefore, does not attempt to cover each and every possibility regarding the regulatory impact arising from any individual securitisation transaction.
Basel II is designed to align the regulatory capital requirements for a bank with the banks’ economic risk profile, for example, the amount of capital and reserves to be held by a bank due to credit risk taken on when issuing a mortgage loan to a customer.
