ABSTRACT
This statement sets out the principles on which a system of bank capital regulation should be based, shows how the proposed New Basel Capital Accord fails to meet these standards, and provides recommendations which would significantly improve capital regulations. These recommendations are based on the sub-group's strong belief that regulators are not generally in a better position to assess risk than financial market participants.
