In December 2017 the BCBS made their final decision on what they call the “Finalisation of Basel III” and what the industry has called “Basel IV”.  The reforms tighten the rules, aiming to reduce variation in RWAs across banks and are aimed to be in force from 2022, although they do require governments (EU, US etc.) to write them into their own laws, which may see further changes made.

We conclude: The continuation of the full AIRB modelling of PD, EAD and LGD for mid corps, SME and Specialized Lending plus the continuance of regulatory PD modelling for banks and even the largest corporates will lead to a further demand for high quality data from GCD both for modelling and for benchmarking purposes.
