G20 leaders on Friday endorsed tighter financial regulations, including bank capital and liquidity standards, to guard against what they called past excesses.

The leaders of advanced and emerging economies, in a declaration after their Seoul summit, also backed measures to better regulate "systemically important financial institutions" -- those deemed too big to fail.

"This new framework...will ensure a more resilient financial system by reining in the past excesses of the financial sector and better serving the needs of our economies," their statement said.
