Lecture topic: Banking Risk Capital- A viewpoint of regulatory capital
Lection content :The lecture will review international efforts to define risk at banking institutions.

Hence, I will provide an overview of economic capital concepts as well as an overview of the increasing political process of how regulatory risk rules are being implemented across the world.
