  Basel Norms  What is Risk ã Risk is the greatest phenomena where the probability of occurrence or non-occurrence is equal. ã Risk is the potentiality that both the expected and unexpected events may have an adverse impact on the bank’s capital earnings . ã There are three major types of risks encountered by the banks and these are Credit Risk, Market Risk & Operational Risk.  What is Basel I ã The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, which came into existence in 1974, volunteered to develop a framework for sound banking practices internationally. ã In 1988 the full set of recommendations was documented and given to the Central banks of the countries for implementation to suit their national systems. This is called the Basel Capital Accord or Basel I Accord. ã It provided level playing field by stipulating the amount of capital that needs to be maintained by internationally active banks.  What is Basel II ã Banking has changed dramatically since the Basel I document of 1988. ã Advances in risk management and the increasing complexity of financial activities / instruments (like options, hybrid securities etc.) prompted international supervisors to review the appropriateness of regulatory capital standards under Basel I. ã The new proposal is based on three mutually reinforcing pillars that allow banks and supervisors to evaluate properly the various risks that banks have to face and realign regulatory capital more closely with underlying risks. ã Each of these three pillars has risk mitigation as its central board. The new risk sensitive approach seeks to strengthen the safety and soundness of the industry by focusing on: ã   ã ●  Risk based capital (Pillar 1) ã ●  Risk based supervision (Pillar 2) ã ●  Risk disclosure to enforce market discipline (Pillar 3) ã
