U.S. Basel III Proposals: Infographic

January 14th, 2013

U.S. bank regulators have proposed to apply the Basel III capital rules to virtually all U.S. banking organizations. If adopted, the U.S. Basel III proposals would represent the most comprehensive revision to U.S. bank capital standards in over two decades. We have created some visuals that highlight certain key aspects of the U.S. Basel III proposals. An overview of the U.S. Basel III proposals and Davis Polk’s summaries of related Dodd-Frank bank regulatory rulemakings is available here.

View Davis Polk’s full-size visuals in pdf format including a timeline of U.S. Basel III implementation as proposed in June 2012.
