Capital and Liquidity Requirements for European Banks

Capital and Liquidity Requirements for EU Banks goes far beyond the existing rules and standards, not only by looking into the historical realisation of the European Single Rule Book (SRB) for capital adequacy and liquidity supervision, but also by going deeply into the background of the standards put forward by the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision, the global rule-maker for the financial sector. The insights provided into the historical and normative background are essential in order to facilitate a more constructive interpretation of the extensive rules of the SRB The book also delivers a deeper understanding of the various policy choices that Europe has made in the transposition of the Basel standards.


An important reference source for all legal practitioners and scholars researching European financial regulation, this new volume provides an extensive representation of the key topics, affording the reader unique insights into the interrelation and the interplay of the various prudential rules and standards in Europe.
