    • Net Stable Funding Ratio module, which requires banks to maintain a stable funding profile in relation to the composition of their assets and off-balance-sheet activities

    • Margin requirements module, which establishes minimum standards for margin requirements for non-centrally cleared derivatives
    • Pillar 2 supervisory review process module, which ensures that banks have adequate capital and liquidity to support all the risks in their business, especially with respect to risks not fully captured by the Pillar 1 process, and encourages good risk management.
