Others worry that bank lobbyists may use the coronavirus crisis to push their own
agenda forward.
“This postponement should make us wonder whether banks are indeed as wellcapitalised
as lobbyists have been saying they are for the last few years,” said
Mayra Rodriguez Valladares, managing principal at risk consultancy firm MRV
Associates. “I’m very concerned that when the pandemic finally ends, they will
take advantage of the situation to request further delays and ease on bank capital
and leverage requirements. Regulators should be requiring more from banks, not
less.”
