Course Description

The course will cover the prudential regulation of banking institutions through capital and liquidity requirements. It will begin by describing the business of banking before turning to prudential regulation. Some time will be spent examining the extraordinary measures taken by the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department to support the economy and financial markets during the Covid-19 health crisis. It will finish with an in-depth look at the development and evolution of the Liquidity Coverage Ratio from a Basel III international standard to a U.S. regulation, including implementation and interpretational challenges faced by regulated banks. In addition to gaining knowledge of the prudential regulation of banks, the course is meant to provide students a better understanding of financial institutions and markets as well as a detailed examination of regulatory compliance and interpretation.
