Basel to Toughen ABS Capital Rules Over Banks’ Objections

Updated on

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is set to stiffen capital requirements for securitized debt, putting aside lenders’ objections, according to two people familiar with the regulator’s plans.

The Basel committee will stick close to a December 2013 proposal that set out tougher rules for how banks model risks associated with asset-backed securities, said the people, who requested anonymity because the plans are private.
