Sovereign Gold Bonds, or SGBs, are issued by the Reserve Bank of India on behalf of the Indian government as an alternative to physical gold.

New Banking Rules Will Tighten Credit Standards, according to Morgan Stanley.
According to Morgan Stanley analysts, the Fed will issue new bank capital regulations between late May and early July, which will be followed by a comment period and a final rule that will be implemented gradually between 2025 and 27.
For their US Large-Cap Banks coverage, they anticipate that the implementation of this Basel IV, often known as the 'Basel III Endgame,' will result in increased risk-weighted assets (RWAs) and capital requirements, with a focus on Global Systemically Important Banks (GSIBs).
The name 'Basel' comes from the city of Basel in Switzerland, where the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision was established in 1974.
The committee is made up of representatives from central banks and regulatory authorities from around the world, and its primary goal is to promote international financial stability by developing and promoting supervisory standards and guidelines for the banking industry.
The West has traditionally dominated global groupings of leaders, most notably the G8, which included Russia until 2014 and is now the G7.

Russia is ready to develop a global reserve currency together with China and other members of the BRICS group of nations.
It could be based on a basket of currencies from the organization's members.
One possibility is that the BRICS basket currency could attract the reserves not just of the group's members, but also countries already in their range of influence.
These include nations in South Asia and the Middle East.
It is a growing eastern world alliance led by China.
In another effort to reduce their dependence on the US dollar, BRICS members have been building their own global payment infrastructures for international transactions that are independent of the US dollar and can serve as alternatives to SWIFT, the leading messaging network for financial transactions worldwide.
This allows BRICS members, especially those who are often subjects of US sanctions, to create their own rules for international banking and settlement. Moreover, by extending alternative financial infrastructure to other countries and regions, BRICS can create greater buy-in for their own system and increase their financial and political influence through this alternative system.
Some BRICS members have independently developed their own cross-border payment mechanisms in recent years.
Both Russia and China have launched their national alternatives to the SWIFT global banking network and introduced their systems to broader global markets. Source: www.cambridge.org
