Balance Sheet and Capital

Effective balance sheet management

Global economic uncertainty has prompted financial institutions to scrutinize their strategic planning and allocation of capital and liquidity across businesses and markets. The fallout of the crisis has brought forth an uncomfortable realization that the approach to capital and liquidity management is inefficient and disjointed at many financial institutions.

The consequences of this can be significant, including heightened financial, operational and regulatory risk and increased cost of doing business.

Basel III

Tough new rules under Basel III and a host of local regulations require financial institutions to increase capital, enhance liquidity and reduce risk.

The resulting adverse impact on returns on capital and higher cost of business, impacts shareholders and customers alike.

Further, greater scrutiny by investors, regulators and other stakeholders regarding balance sheet usage is expected to sustain.

Financial Institutions will need a new roadmap towards meeting Basel III’s requirements prior to the proposed deadline of January 2019 for full implementation. The roadmap should help establish both short and long term goals for upgrading their capital and liquidity management strategies and practices.
