International framework for liquidity risk measurement, standards and monitoring – consultative document

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued for consultation a package of proposals to strengthen global capital and liquidity regulations with the goal of promoting a more resilient banking sector.

Introduction

Throughout the global financial crisis which began in mid-2007, many banks struggled to maintain adequate liquidity. Unprecedented levels of liquidity support were required from central banks in order to sustain the financial system and even with such extensive support a number of banks failed, were forced into mergers or required resolution. These circumstances and events were preceded by several years of ample liquidity in the financial system, during which liquidity risk and its management did not receive the same level of scrutiny and priority as other risk areas. The crisis illustrated how quickly and severely liquidity risks can crystallise and certain sources of funding can evaporate, compounding concerns related to the valuation of assets and capital adequacy.

A key characteristic of the financial crisis was the inaccurate and ineffective management of liquidity risk. In recognition of the need for banks to improve their liquidity risk management and control their liquidity risk exposures, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (“the Committee”) issued Principles for Sound Liquidity Risk Management and Supervision in September 2008. These sound principles provide consistent supervisory expectations on the key elements of a robust framework for liquidity risk management at banking organisations. Such elements include:

  • board and senior management oversight;
  • the establishment of policies and risk tolerance;
  • the use of liquidity risk management tools such as comprehensive cash flow
    forecasting, limits and liquidity scenario stress testing;
  • the development of robust and multifaceted contingency funding plans; and
  • the maintenance of a sufficient cushion of high quality liquid assets to meet
    contingent liquidity needs.

Supervisors, for their part, are expected to assess both the adequacy of a bank’s liquidity risk management framework and its liquidity risk exposure. Supervisors are also expected to take prompt action to address the bank’s risk management deficiencies or excess exposure in order to protect depositors and enhance the overall stability of the financial system.

To reinforce these supervisory objectives and efforts, the Committee has recently focused on further elevating the resilience of internationally active banks to liquidity stresses across the globe, as well as increasing international harmonisation of liquidity risk supervision. The Committee has developed two internationally consistent regulatory standards for liquidity risk supervision as a cornerstone of a global framework to strengthen liquidity risk management and supervision. The standards also respond to recommendations of the G20 that called for the Committee to “. enhance tools, metrics and benchmarks that supervisors can use to assess the resilience of banks’ liquidity cushions and constrain any weakening in liquidity maturity profiles, diversity of funding sources, and stress testing practices”. Furthermore, the G20 recommended that “. the BCBS and national authorities should develop and agree by 2010 a global framework for promoting stronger liquidity buffers at financial institutions, including cross-border institutions.”

It should be stressed that the standards establish minimum levels of liquidity for internationally active banks. Banks are expected to meet these standards as well as adhere to all the principles set out in the September 2008 Sound Principles document mentioned above. As under the Basel Accord (for capital adequacy), national authorities are free to adopt arrangements that set higher levels of minimum liquidity.

To further strengthen and promote consistency in international liquidity risk supervision, the Committee has also developed a minimum set of monitoring tools to be used in the ongoing monitoring of the liquidity risk exposures of cross-border institutions and in communicating these exposures among home and host supervisors.

This document is organised as follows:

  • Section II discusses the two measures of liquidity risk exposure developed to be
    formally-adopted standards for internationally active banking organisations.
  • Section III presents a set of common monitoring tools to be used by supervisors in
    their monitoring of liquidity risks at individual institutions.
  • Section IV discusses application issues for the standards and monitoring tools.

Liquid Glass Auto Polish Finish, Yes or No?

I’m new to the site and I just bought a 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD, it’s CBP. I did a search and spent the past hour or so looking through this forum looking for some information on liquid glass and couldn’t find any.

I have some of this on hand and was thinking about using it on my new car. I have never used it before. I was wondering if any of you have any feedback on this product and if I should use it or not.

I have read some consumer reviews of it and people seem to love it. The reason I thought it might be good is it’s a brand new car and the paint is perfect. The main thing I’ve read about it is, if the paint is perfect, this is the stuff to use.

It makes me a bit nervous that I can’t find any info on it on this site. Anonther thing that makes me a bit nervous about it is the removal instructions. It states if I have to do any touch up painting, it can be removed by “first washing with a strong solution of high quality car was detergent, then using 00 steel wool with mineral spirits or varsol”.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

how to remove Liquid Glass Auto Polish.

when I got my 01 black on black Vette in 2010, the paint was a mess. I used LG before and had good results. So I started by washing with hot water and lots of Dawn, that seemed to strip it pretty good. I started with the LG around the back hatch. I noticed the product was going on really streaky, so I stopped and had a heck of a time removing the haze. It left streaks in the paint, which I got out by buffing by hand. At this point, I stopped using the LG.

I got a clay bar kit, and Meguiars fine cut, seal, polish, carnuba wax. Washed the car with Dawn again. Over the next 2 days, I applied the various Meguiars products and I was quite satisfied.

what I have noticed is that under the right light conditions, the back hatch has a “milky” appearance. the car has never been wrecked or re-painted, so I attirbute the “milky” to the LG.

I tried hot water and Dawn again, clay bar again, and some rubbing alcohol, and Dupli Color(brand) grease wax remover, and there is no change in the “milky” appearance. Help. Any suggestions as to how to get this Liquid Glass off. I went to the local store where I bought the LG, and they no longer sell it and the owner was of no help.
