Basel III, Pillar 3 Reports

Background

Westpac Banking Corporation is an Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI) subject to regulation by APRA. APRA has accredited Westpac to apply the most advanced models permitted by the Basel III global capital adequacy regime to the measurement of its regulatory capital requirements.
