      Basel III regulations require banks to protect themselves against strategic risk. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive and measurable definition of this risk and proposes a framework to estimate economic capital requirements.,The paper studies the literature and solicits expert opinion in formulating a comprehensive and measurable definition of strategic risk. The financial crisis has been blamed on many entities, institutions and individuals as well as the Basel II accord which had just begun to be implemented globally when the crisis erupted. The criticisms resulted in the construction of Basel III, a series of measures designed to augment and repair (but not replace) the Basel II accord. One of these adjuncts addresses the problem of economic.

    1. Introduction. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) released, in , the new Basel Capital Accord (usually referred to as Basel II) to address some of the major shortcomings of the previous Basel Accord of (Basel I), thus fostering stability in the financial system. One of the central changes proposed by Basel II is the increased sensitivity of a bank's capital. The proposed new Basel Capital Accord (Bank for International Settlements, ) provides for a greater sensitivity of capital requirements to the credit risk inherent in bank loan portfolios. This heightened sensitivity raises the question of whether, and to what extent, the new capital standards will intensify business cycles. The potential.

    In June , the new capital adequacy framework known as Basel II was endorsed by central bank governors and the heads of bank supervisory authorities in the Group of Ten countries. The framework outlines risk-sensitive minimum capital requirements for banking organizations and the review of such assessments by supervisors.   Since consultations on the Basel II accord started, and since its eventual adoption in , there has been a broader debate on the procyclicality ef-fect of prudential and regulatory rules and practices. 2 With Basel II, capital 1The Basel I Accord prescribed that banks hold capital of at least 8 percent of their risk-weighted assets.
