MSCI Comments on Basel Committee's Regulatory Framework Paper

In July 2013, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision released a Discussion Paper entitled The Regulatory Framework:  Balancing Risk Sensitivity, Simplicity and Comparability, which presented the background for a risk-sensitive capital framework that has evolved during the last two decades.  The challenge put forth was whether a future capital regime could be simpler and could provide improved comparability across banks, while retaining the benefits of risk sensitivity.  This Market Insight contains MSCI's response to the Basel Discussion Paper, which was submitted to the Basel Committee in October 2013.
