EU changes to Basel III would soften capital blow

Modifications to Basel III reforms pushed by European Union policy-makers could reduce the amount of additional capital EU banks need to raise to achieve compliance by up to 70%, data published by the European Banking Authority (EBA) shows.

Under the implementation of the revised framework envisioned by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS), EU banks analysed by the EBA would have to raise €52.2 billion ($63.6 billion) of additional capital by 2028.
