A banking organization may provide financial support to another entity that is under financial stress even though there may be no legal, regulatory or contractual obligation to do so. This so-called “step-in risk” is the subject of new international guidelines issued in October by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision of the Bank for International Settlements (Basel Committee).
