Revisions to the Basel Securitisation Framework – consultative document, December 2012

  • “The performance of securitisation exposures and the central role they played during the recent financial crisis were a key motivation for the Basel Committee to perform a broader review of its securitisation framework for regulatory capital requirements. The Committee’s objectives are to make capital requirements more prudent and risk-sensitive; to mitigate mechanistic reliance on external credit ratings; and to reduce current cliff effects in capital requirements.”
