The Implications of Basel III Liquidity Regulatory Reform

  • Laura ChiaramonteEmail author
Part of the Palgrave Macmillan Studies in Banking and Financial Institutions book series (SBFI)


Chiaramonte investigates the implications of Basel III liquidity regulatory reform. The chapter analyzes the possible strategies for banks to meet the Basel III liquidity ratios and their potential costs and benefits. As well as looking at the results of existing empirical studies, the chapter reviews the impact of the liquidity requirements on banking behavior. Chiaramonte surveys the results of Quantitative Impact Studies (QIS) carried out over the period 2012–2016 by the Basel Committee on a representative sample of banks in 27 countries, investigating the compliance of banking systems with Basel III liquidity ratios.
