Basel III – The New Role of Risk Management and IT in the Financial Industry

Targeted deployment of capital with the aid of the right software solution ensures a bank’s sustainability.

12/08/2010 -

In a conversation with Bosch Software Innovations GmbH in Immenstaad, Dr. Michael Buttler, risk management specialist, explains the impact of Basel III on risk management and IT in the banking industry.

The complexity and interconnectivity of financial markets are particularly obvious in the midst of a financial crisis. The revisions of MaRisk and the introduction of Basel III represent morestrigent banking requirements which can help reduce global risks and achieve more stability in the financial industry. What changes that will mean for the financial industry and what the consequences will be for banks, especially with regard to capital adequacy guidelines, are explained by Dr. Buttler, CEO of Buttler Consulting, Munich, in a conversation with Bosch Software Innovations. He also demonstrates how, with the aid of a software solution, banks can correctly target the deployment of their capital and strengthen their competitive position.
