Basel ll requires financial institutions to maintain enough cash reserves to cover risks incurred by operations and is an internationally recognised business standard. Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BSBS) issues banking laws and regulations which are a series of recommendations forming the Basel accords.

The three essential requirements of Basel II are:

  1. Mandating that capital allocations by institutional managers are more risk sensitive
  2. Separating credit risks from operational risks and quantifying both
  3. Reducing the scope or possibility of regulatory arbitrage by attempting to align the real or economic risk precisely with regulatory assessment

Basel ll has had a direct result in the evolution of banking strategies such as the risky investments in to the subprime mortgage market as well as moving higher risks assets to unregulated parts of holding companies.
