The Tale of Two Regulations — Dodd-Frank Act and Basel III

A free white paper by The Institute for Financial Markets

This academic-produced study provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of the impact of Dodd-Frank on U.S financial system competitiveness when compared to worldwide financial systems. It also looks at the anticipated implementation procedures necessary to comply with the regulations and quantitative requirements of the Dodd-Frank and Basel III regulatory frameworks. Finally, the study examines the impact of Basel III regulatory requirements on optimal equity holdings of large banks. Results suggest that the implementation of Basel III by U.S. large banks will increase bank lending rates, which in turn could counteract the effect of any economic growth policies.
