Reserve-Bank-consults-on-what-should--qualify-as-bank-capital

The Reserve Bank has started a public consultation about what type of financial instruments should qualify as bank capital.

Capital regulations address not only the minimum amount of capital that banks must hold, but also the type of financial instruments that qualify as capital. The consultation that starts today is about the nature of financial instruments that are suitable, rather than the amount of capital.
