The European Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) created a regulatory capital framework consisting of three ‘pillars’ namely;
- Pillar 1 – which sets out the minimum capital requirements that firms are required to meet for;
- Pillar 2 – which requires firms to take a view on whether additional capital should be held against capital risks not covered by Pillar 1; and
- Pillar 3 – which requires firms to publish certain details of its risks, capital and risk management process.
