Risk-based capital

Risk-based capital Definition

One of three capital standards adopted for savings institutions in 1989. The standard is designed to require savings institutions to hold more capital for higher-risk assets. The value of each asset is weighted according to its risk and then capital is calculated at a fixed percent of each risk-weighted asset. The standard adopted in 1989 was 8 percent of risk-weighted assets. See tangible capital and core capital.
