This course provides a detailed overview of the history of the Basel Accords and how they evolved from 1998 to what became known as Basel II.

It describes the regulatory tools that are available in Basel II and the risks that are covered and not covered, while also explaining the ICAAP and capital management. Following this detailed overview, the course focuses on the financial crisis and how Basel II’s weaknesses were highlighted as a result, and what regulators planned in response, i.e. Basel III.
