GFMA Submits Comments to the BCBS on Revisions to the Basel Securitisation Framework
18 March 2013
GFMA provides comments to the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision (BCBS) on the Consultative Document, Revisions to the Basel Securitisation Framework published by the BCBS on 18 December 2012. GFMA believes the starting assumptions of the Consultative Document are too narrowly drawn. The group notes that outside certain well-known and defined sectors, securitisations have performed well since the financial crisis. GFMA calls for a balanced, prudently calibrated and holistic policy response.
