Prudential liquidity and capital regulatory changes
Regulations like Dodd-Frank, CCAR, Basel III and the Capital Requirements Directive (CRDIV) place pressure on financial institutions around issues such as the quality and level of capital required, risk coverage, leverage, global liquidity standards and supervisory monitoring.
Market and trading regulations
Market and trading regulations and the drive for a central clearing regime for OTC Derivatives all present challenges for the industry. For example, the latter calls for increased margin and collateral requirements, higher risk weightings, stricter reporting requirements.
Funding and investment options
The increased capital and liquidity requirements and the decrease in funding sources, along with regulatory pressure, prevent some financial institution from conducting certain investment activities.
