G20 leaders set to tighten bank financing regulations

The forthcoming G20 meeting will see a flurry of promises and objectives announced with one of the major plans set to revolve around banking finance. There is a feeling that the financial regulations which cover the worldwide banking sector will be tightened to ensure that additional capital is held on the balance sheet as a buffer between the good times and the bad times.

If these plans come into action, as seems highly likely, it looks as though worldwide banks will need further financial assistance which could come in the form of a fund-raising exercise, merger or potential assistance from governments around the world. While there appears to be some uniformity regarding the need to increase the strength of bank balance sheets, there is concern that this increased capital requirement would curtail expansion in the short to medium term and could impact on the strength of the worldwide economy.

At a time when governments around the world are calling on banks to increase liquidity to consumers and businesses on one hand, on the other they are insisting that additional capital is raised and held on the balance sheet for the future. Do these two particular ideals dovetail each other?
