Confidence in both financial institutions and markets must be re-built; this requires (1) better (model-based) valuation processes; (2) a more robust capital basis, including clarification and strengthening of the Basel II securitization framework; (3) improving the liquidity regime; (4) greater transparency; notably relating to structured products and off-balance sheet vehicles; (5) improved information from CRAs. The need is to find a balance that still fosters innovation, without leaving the system vulnerable to excesses.
