The July 2013 introduction of the Basel III US Final Rule has brought risk-related compliance and regulatory issues to the forefront. As such, both banks and supervisory bodies are reevaluating the adequacy of their risk management programs in an effort to ensure their efficacy. Banks have already spent a significant amount of their tier 1 capital on Basel II compliance, and the same is expected with regard to Basel III. This cost increases if other regulations, such as Dodd-Frank (DFAST, CCAR) and Sarbanes-Oxley are included.
