Basel Eases Leverage Ratio Proposal

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision revised leverage ratio and disclosure requirements under the Basel III capital framework. Basel’s minimum leverage ratio — Tier 1 capital divided by an “exposure measure” — remained at 3 percent.

It also differs from the U.S. financial agencies’ proposed supplementary leverage ratio of 6 percent. ABA urged regulators in October to delay the U.S. proposal until after the Basel Committee had released its revised exposure measure calculations.
