The Road to Basel III - February 2012
This regulatory newsletter is a part our series The Road to Basel III, giving you our thoughts and understandings of the fast changing regulatory landscape and its implications for the financial industry.
In this newsletter we have compiled some interesting recent webcast produced by Deloittes international Financial Services network. Included is also our report on how to prepare for the unthinkable, a Euro breakup. The topics of the webcasts include the implementation of CRD IV in EU, Basel III vs. Dodd-Frank, and the Volcker rule.
Transposition to CRD IV: timeline, impacts and major changes in transposing Basel III
At European level, Basel III has been transposed into three Directives (CRD II, CRD III and CRD IV, the latest being still under discussion) that will start reshaping the risk and capital management practices in financial institutions. We invite you to view the recording of this webcast to learn about the transition to CRD IV.
Basel III and Dodd-Frank: The Emerging Bank Capital and Liquidity Framework
With new international guidance from Basel Committee regulators and emerging Dodd-Frank provisions, regulatory compliance is increasingly complex for banks. What are important recent developments? Learn how the new standards may impact your financial institution and potential challenges you may face through this Basel III and Dodd-Frank webcast.
What's Next for the Volcker Rule?
Among Dodd-Frank Act provisions, perhaps none has garnered as much initial attention as the Volcker Rule, which places significant focus on dedicated proprietary investment operations. View the recording of this webcast to gain insights into how the Volcker Rule could potentially impact the financial services industry, and how you can prepare for what lies ahead.

It is even speculated that some countries may be forced to leave the euro or, in an extreme scenario, the entire euro zone might break up. In cooperation with The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) in the United Kingdom, Deloitte has prepared Euro contingency planning that identifies a number of commercial considerations with Treasury in focus.
