Results of the 2014 EU-wide stress test

The European Banking Authority (EBA) published the results of the 2014 EU-wide stress test. As a fundamental step in the on-going repair process of the EU banking sector, the EU-wide stress test allows assessing the resilience of banks to adverse economic developments, as well as understanding any remaining vulnerabilities. By disclosing up to 12,000 data points per bank, the EBA is providing unprecedented transparency into EU banks’ balance sheets, an essential condition to maintain strong market discipline and increase investors’ confidence in the EU banking sector.
