Basel II Services - What can it do for me?

The framework for Basel II compels the supervisors to ensure that banks implement credit rating techniques that represent their particular risk profile. Besides the risk inputs (Probability of Default (PD), Loss Given Default (LGD) & Exposure at Default (EAD) calculation, the final Basel accord includes the “use test” requirement which is the requirement for a firm to use an advanced approach more widely in its business and not merely for calculation of regulatory capital.

Therefore, many financial institutions are required to make considerable changes in their approach to risk management (i.e. infrastructure, systems, processes, data requirements).

How can we help you?

We are enabling you to achieve profitable compliance with the New Capital Accord. Experian is a leading provider of products and services for the New Basel Capital Accord (Basel II). It works closely with existing banking partners and with a broad cross-section of financial institutions and national regulators.
