This eCourse consists of three modules. Module 1 describes the liquidity and leverage framework introduced by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) as part of Basel III. Building on the lessons learned from the financial crisis, the module details the components and methodology of the three ratios introduced by the BCBS – namely the LCR, the NSFR, and the Basel III leverage ratio.
Module 2 describes Pillar 2 regime in detail where Pillar 2 is the second element of the “three pillars” framework that was originally introduced by Basel II and subsequently retained and enhanced by Basel III. The focus of Pillar 2 is on ensuring that banks have adequate capital to cover the material risks to which they are exposed.
Module 3 describes Pillar 3 regime, which is the third element of the “three pillars” framework that was originally introduced by Basel II and subsequently retained and enhanced by Basel III. It deals with requirements related to market discipline, which it seeks to achieve by specifying minimum levels of public disclosure as well as standards applied to those disclosures.

- Recognize the need for the Basel III framework to include requirements related to liquidity and leverage
