dc.description.abstract Basel II solvency accord is currently under implementation by G-10 banks. As the deadline approaches, the international banking community is counting on pioneering banks to succeed in complying with this regulatory framework on time. The debate about the readiness to adopt such "complex and expensive" requirements is raised internationally as well as locally. In Lebanon the regulatory authorities and some commercial banks are preparing for the implementation of the accord. This thesis assesses the major challenges and obstacles that face the Lebanese banking sector and the likelihood of adopting the accord. A survey conducted on a sample of banks operating in Lebanon, reveals the degree of awareness, the main concerns perceived and the action plans taken by these banks. The stress test conducted on two Lebanese banks suggests that the adoption of this accord will be costly not only in terms of capitalization, but also in terms of risk management requirements. en_US
