World Economy
(Bachelor’s programme)

2018
For many years banking regulation has been one of the main aspects of agenda of the FRS and other US regulators but the activities of investment banks practically have not been given due attention until the global financial crisis of 2008-2009. Basel III has become one of the first instruments in terms of prudential supervision which has started to regulate US investment banks, and this paper is devoted to the study of the Basel Standards’ impact on the fey performance indicators of the US banks. The analysis was aimed at assessing the effect of the increased capital and liquidity requirements on the income, assets, and return on equity of the largest US investment banks. Based on the study results, it was found that increased capital adequacy ratios have a negative influence on the growth rate of income and asset volume and reduce ROE of US banks, while the new Liquidity Coverage Ratio has a significant negative effect only on the return on equity of the investment banks.
