Dutch finance minister says EU banks may face increase in capital requirements

Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem said some EUbanks could face an increase in capital requirements under the new global rulesproposed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, emphasizing that thecommittee must ensure that the lenders' internal models to assess risk are of"sufficient quality," Bloomberg News reported Oct. 11.

"If some internal models prove to be weak, those bankswill face higher capital requirements," Dijsselbloem told reporters inLuxembourg.

Dijsselbloem said he disagrees with the starting position ofpeople who insist that there should not be any increase in overall capitalrequirements. Several prominent lawmakers have insisted that capital rulesshould not be made much more onerous for European banks.
