"Throughout the global financial crisis which began in mid-2007, many banks struggled to maintain adequate liquidity. Unprecedented levels of liquidity support were required from central banks in order to sustain the financial system and even with such extensive support a number of banks failed, were forced into mergers or required resolution.
These circumstances and events were preceded by several years of ample liquidity in the financial system, during which liquidity risk and its management did not receive the same level of scrutiny and priority as other risk areas. The crisis illustrated how quickly and severely liquidity risks can crystallize and certain sources of funding can evaporate, compounding concerns related to the valuation of assets and capital adequacy."

The Basel III Forum will provide you with the insights into the critical issues and changes in Capital Adequacy and Liquidity Management. The professionals from leading financial institutions will share their knowledge on challenges in current regulatory environment and impact of the reforms on risk management & measurement techniques. The Basel III Forum will offer you great opportunity to explore the challenges facing banks to comply with the New Regime & best practices for appropriate capital and liquidity risk management in changing business environment.
