The aim of this thesis is that to introduce the new bank regulations, which have followed the last financial crisis. More precisely, as the regulatory effort has been extensive, this paper is focused on Basel III, which, with respect to the previous Basel I and Basel II, has introduced important novelties as far as capital and liquidity requirement are concerned. The thesis will be organized as follows: First, chapter one will provide a narrative of world crisis with a particular attention on its causes and effects. Second, chapter two will be entirely devoted to Basel I and II, their main features and their main caveats, which led to the introduction of Basel III. Finally, chapter three will be devoted to Basel III. The inspiration of this thesis comes from a topic that I enjoyed during the second year of my undergraduate program. Indeed, I have studied the new bank regulations in my Financial markets and intermediaries course and I have been attracted by the way, in which regulators were able to reform banking regulation spurred by the last financial crisis. I believe that this was a decisive step given the key-role played by banks in the financial sector. Indeed, it is well known that banks allow for an efficient allocation of money by transferring funds from households/corporates in surplus to households/corporates in deficit. Without them, no financial transactions could be performed or better they could be performed at higher costs for this reason the word financial "intermediaries" has been assigned to banks: they are entities that act as the middleman between two parties in a financial transaction.
