Abstract

Basel II replaces Basel I?s implicit capital charge on operational risk with an explicit charge. Certain U.S. banks concentrated in processing-related business lines ? which have significant operational risk ? could thus face an increase in overall minimum regulatory capital requirements. Some have argued that, as a result, these so-called ?processing banks? would be disadvantaged vis--vis competitors not subject to regulatory capital requirements for operational risk. This paper evaluates these concerns.
