This Handbook includes the most recent amendments to the Banking Ordinance (Cap 155), which introduces Basel II to Hong Kong. The method of calculating capital adequacy ratio under Basel II is considerably more complex than that of Basel I, which was previously adopted by the Banking Ordinance (Cap 155). Basel II improves the capital framework's risk-sensitivity and is considered more comprehensive. Credit risk, market risk and operational risk are introduced by Basel II. The recent amendments to the Banking Ordinance (Cap 155) also established a Capital Adequacy Review Tribunal, which is responsible for reviewing all decisions of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority in relation to capital adequacy ratio of an authorised institution.
The Handbook provides section-by-section annotations to the Banking Ordinance (Cap 155). The annotations include significant judicial decisions, detailed explanation and analysis of the law as provided in the legislation, a comprehensive glossary of Chinese words and phrases, table of cases, table of legislation and other authoritative materials. The annotations have been updated by Mr Stephen Chan, a well respected academic and author for LexisNexis.
