Abstract

Basel III is a very important instrument for the banking industry's success. The Basel III implementation is accompanied by some challenges. This research aims to find out the implementation challenges for Basel III in the Kuwait banking industry. Based on this literature, the researcher has proposed a conceptual framework to be implemented in the Kuwait banking industry. In order to achieve that objective, this research proposed sub-objectives, which are to identify the impact of human skills, policy regulation, growth barriers, risk management, and management commitment on the implementation of Basel III by the Kuwait banking industry. This study has followed the quantitative approach. The required data for this study was collected from the banking industry in Kuwait. The population of this study includes all personnel involved in the Basel Cord implementation. The population of the study was all the banking employees that were dealing with the Basel cord in the Kuwait banking industry. For the current research, the unit of analysis was 90 employees that are dealing with Basel III from 11 banks. The findings of this research have confirmed that there is a significant relationship between human skills, policy regulation, growth barriers, risk management, and management commitment and the implementation of Basel III Cord in the Kuwait banking industry. This research was limited to the Kuwait banking industry. The conclusion is that it would be appropriate for Kuwait authorities to consider methodology alternatives for the implementation of Basel III in the banking industry.
