The FIG Idea

  • The FIG Idea: Runners and Riders for the Basel Race

    The FIG Idea studies the form for bank capital's most important competition of the year — set to run this October (or perhaps not).

  • The FIG Idea: assume the recovery position

    When Banco Popular lost the market's confidence, it ran out of road. Realistic assumptions for recovery rates on bad assets plunged to super-conservative levels. Confidence is the greatest form of solvency, its withdrawal a precursor to insolvency.

  • Close encounters with a third kind (of capital)
