The Future of National Development Banks

Lavinia Barros de Castro

Oxford University Press

Should development banks (DBs) be regulated? Is Basel regulation a suitable framework for them? With regard to risk management, do DBs entail different characteristics from private banks? What are the main challenges posed by the new Basel regulations for DBs? This chapter explores these largely unexplored questions and the habitual responses to them. The answers are built upon a reconstruction of the theoretical arguments in favour of financial regulation; a historical description of the evolution of the Basel Agreements framework; a few analytical generalizations built upon an exploratory case study; and a review of the literature on risk management practices in DBs as well as interviews with risk management specialists and Brazilian regulatory agencies.
