Basel Committee Agreed to Speed Up Review of Liquidity Plans

September 28, 2011

The review will be completed “well in advance” of an original mid-2013 deadline for finishing an assessment of the measures, the group said today.

The so-called liquidity coverage ratio requires banks to hold enough easily saleable assets to survive a 30-day credit crunch.
