ABA has developed a guide to help community bankers start evaluating how the Basel III capital proposals would affect their institutions. The guide -- “Top 12 Questions to Apply to Your Bank” -- describes relevant Basel III issues and then lists several questions that bankers can use to determine an issue's likely impact on their bank's business.
The questions also are designed to help community bankers gather factual data for writing Basel III comment letters. The new comment deadline is Oct. 22. Meanwhile, ABA also is encouraging bankers to consult its Basel III resource page that contains the latest information on the capital proposals.
