Regulator Expectations in Capital Planning

Gary J. Young, Young & Associates, Inc.

Capital adequacy requirements have changed. Community bankers need to understand, plan, then implement the changes to risk-based capital outlined in Basel III. Regulators expect senior management and the board to determine their institution’s capital adequacy based on the specific risks at their bank. Management needs to develop a capital policy, together with a contingency plan that demonstrates adequate capital in a stressed scenario. This webinar will cover the specifics of regulatory changes with an emphasis on practical applications to effectively and efficiently develop a robust capital policy and contingency plan.
