10:30– 11:30 Capital adequacy in an age of inadequate capital
With the new roadmap, the BSP has again set the local bar higher than the minimum international standard. By adopting the capital adequacy standards by January 1, 2014, the BSP effectively accelerates the implementation of the Basel III Accord meaning that in two years, the BSP's capital adequacy standards will be higher than the international standard. But in an age where the international banking industry is gasping for more capital, what are some of the options available to Philippine banks to ensure that they are both capital efficient as well as attractive to international investors.
  • Unexpected consequences, annual decrease in GDP
  • Capital has no meaning without liquidity
