Basel IV

The next generation of RWA

Basel IV encompasses more than just finalising Basel III – According to many bank representatives the requirements of the Basel committee have expanded so much in recent years that we must already start referring to Basel IV.

Basel IV - The next generation of RWA

  •  Finalising Basel III and evolving Basel IV
  • The details of the latest regulatory requirements
  • This page takes a look at your challenges and our solutions 

The implementation of the Basel IV framework is already a remarkable challenge for the European banking landscape, as methodologies for the determination of capital requirements are to be revised. In doing so, capital calculations across all risk types will be fundamentally amended.

What does this mean for banks?

For banks, this means that the next steps for efficient implementation must be planned and managed at an early stage and integrated into the organisation’s strategy. PwC can support your bank on the basis of extensive experience gained from different supervisory projects. In the context of Basel IV, we recommend a holistic project approach, divided into thematic modules in order to adequately meet the thematic linkages, as well as identifying and managing the strategic impacts. PwC has already developed numerous thematic solutions and project management models to help banks to implement Basel IV requirements. You can view the variety of PwC solutions here.
