      In , the United States adopted the minimum capital standards set by the Bank for International Settlements, based in Basel, Switzerland. The minimum Tier 1 ratio and total capital ratio requirements are 4 and 8 percent, respectively. To conclude the example, the Tier 1 capital and total capital ratios are both above the minimum requirements. Understanding Bank Capital Requirements. Bank Balance Sheet Unlike other types of firms in the game whose assets and liabilities are consolidated into the corporate balance sheet, a bank maintains its own balance sheet for the purpose of providing the player with a clear perspective on the bank’s operations, and to prevent distorting the parent corporation’s balance sheet with the bank’s.   So loans create capital requirements, deposits create reserve requirements. (See also: What Really Constrains Bank Lending.) Banks are required to have a 10 percent reserve for deposits.

The paper reviews the empirical evidence on the impact of the Basel Accord. It focuses on whether the adoption of fixed minimum capital requirements led some banks to maintain higher capital ratios than would otherwise have been the case and whether any increase in ratios was achieved by increasing capital or reducing lending.
