Topic: Basel IV Endgame - A Beginner's Guide

The Basel III accord was introduced in 2009 as a sweeping set of banking reforms designed to mitigate risk in the international banking sector and enhance the banking regulatory framework.  Fast forward to 2024 and some of the reforms are still in the process of implementation.  In this session we'll discuss Basel III, what's been implemented, and what's on the horizon.  In this session, you'll also learn about Basel IV in layman's terms.
