Regulators globally are imposing higher and higher capital requirements on banks. The financial crisis began almost a decade ago but many banks are still battling to survive in low growth and low interest rate environments.

In trying to evaluate the credit standing of banks in different markets - what are the lessons to be drawn? How much capital is enough?
This webinar discusses:
  • The challenges and solutions sought by banks that are most in need of capital. The discussion will range from banks in Italy and other parts of Southern Europe, China and India as well as banks operating in emerging markets
  • The causes and effects of these different capital crises, showing which financial and market indicators are most effective in identifying and quantifying the key issues
  • For comparison, we will also contrast these situations to US and European banks that have successfully rebounded from the 'dark days of the financial crisis' when they required government bail-outs
We looked at financial indicators that showcase management actions and discuss whether the high levels of total loss absorbing capital should give us comfort or concern. Might these strong figures possibly weaken the political will that drove these reforms?
We concluded with a summary of the analytic frameworks and tools that will help you make your own assessment.
