About This Book

Most economies in the world are characterised by a bank-based financial system, that is, the financial intermediation process is mostly performed by banks. It is therefore critically important to undertake a full-fledged analysis of the banking sector with respect to financial stability risks.
The Banking Sector Under Financial Stability considers the unique position of banks which by nature assume higher risks, existing within a low equity to total assets ratio. It recognises that balance sheet analysis of banks becomes a key element in financial stability risk assessment, and that sources of banks' funding also poses risks to financial stability. The book also gives due consideration to regulatory frameworks, with focus on Basel III as a major advancement in dealing with the shortcomings of the US Subprime crisis of 2007 by coming up with a countercyclical capital buffer for systemically important financial institutions.
This book will prove valuable to central bankers, economists and policy-makers who are involved in the field of financial stability, as well as researchers studying the field.
