Basel III Capital Rules Finally Final: What Does It Mean For Community Banks

Much of the financial rulemaking following the financial crisis set its sights on the largest banks with the community and smaller regional banking sector unaffected or impacted indirectly. However, the new rules regarding capital represent some of the most consequential post-financial crisis rulemakings, affecting banks large and small. Finalized at last, the regulations provide direction for bank capital management decisions.

This webinar, co-sponsored by Mercer Capital and Jones Day, reviews the final rules and assesses their impact on community banks.
