Basel Committee Issues Statement on Capital Arbitrage Transactions

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision issued a statement on its position regarding transactions that intend to offset regulatory adjustments. Banks should therefore not engage in transactions that have the aim of offsetting regulatory adjustments. Any such transactions will be subject to careful supervisory scrutiny in the evaluation of risk transfer and the assessment of capital adequacy.
