On this week’s crossover episode of What’s at Stake and the Macrocast, Bryan DeAngelis, partner and Head of Penta’s D.C. office, and Ylan Mui, managing director at Penta speak with Greg Baer, President and Chief Executive Officer at the Bank Policy Institute.
The group breaks down the impacts of Basel III endgame, which is the regulatory approach to analyzing capital requirements for banks based on the riskiness of their activities. Specifically, the group discusses the plan for implementation of Basel III endgame in the U.S. following last week’s U.S. federal prudential bank regulators proposed new capital requirements for large banking organizations. The group breaks down the timing of the standards, especially given the resiliency of banks in recent real and hypothetical stress tests, the current state of the economy, and the upcoming 2024 elections.
