The Impact of Basel III

An Interview with Paula Stibbe, Head of Global Liquidity Sales, Asia Pacific, at J.P. Morgan Asset Management

New regulations—most notably, Basel III—are compelling many treasurers to recalibrate their liquidity strategies. We spoke with Paula Stibbe, Head of Global Liquidity Sales, Asia Pacific, at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to discuss the impact of Basel III and the shifting roles of bank deposits and money market funds (MMF) in cash management.

Basel III covers a lot of ground. What does a liquidity investor need to understand about the new regulations?

Basel III regulations redefine global standards for bank capital, liquidity and leverage. Though Basel III will not be fully implemented until 2019, key regulations have taken effect and they’re already having a profound impact on how banks manage their balance sheets. Liquidity investors need to understand how banks treat deposits under the new rules. In this way they can most effectively structure and segment their cash portfolios to gain the greatest benefit from the new regulatory regime.
