Basel Accord: Set of prudential banking rules released by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in 1988 to give greater solidity to the global financial system. Its main characteristic is the requirement of a minimum percentage resulting from the division of the share capital of a financial institution by its respective risk-weighted assets inherent to them. The Basel Accord was implemented in Brazil by CMN Resolution No. 2,099, of August 17, 1994, as amended, which instituted minimum amounts of paid-in capital and risk-adjusted owners’ equity for Brazilian financial institutions. In January 2001, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision released a new version of the Basel Accord.
