The implementation of Basel II in emerging World Part.III
In Morocco for example, credit risk, what methods are "standards" that are applied in the first place, methods "advanced" being planned in a few years. This allows the market to have time to prepare for and adapt to new standards and above all to promote aspects of governance and transparency (Pillar 2 and 3) as opposed to the race for the sophisticated methods that can lead advanced.
In addition to these legislative aspects and context, the gradual implementation of the standards also allows emerging in time to cushion the financial and human investments induced by the introduction of the device (see article in Financial Services Strategies on the topic: decryption and impact of Basel / IAS in Morocco). These investments are mainly of two kinds: information systems and organizational. Indeed, the Basel standards require a quasi-systematic evolution of strong information systems and the integration of a computing device and archiving of data and specific parameters. This results in high costs, even in many cases, a software market, whose development costs were shared.
For banks, Basel II is also an opportunity to renovate related functions, such as ALM, the practices of lending and risk treatment (recovery), the mechanisms of funding or administration of reference ( especially the third).
The implementation of Basel II also leads to organizational and human costs. Indeed, banks are obliged to proceed with the scalability, and in some cases, the formation of teams in charge of the management, control and risk modeling. In addition, to be fully effective, reform requires awareness (through training) of all stakeholders, including the Directorate General (requirement of Pillar 2), in the process of the bank of grant reporting regulations.
The adoption of Basel II prudential standards, therefore, a virtuous cycle leads to multiple benefits for countries implementing them: this process can be slow in some areas, but it is inexorable to comply with international standards.
