  • Correction statement on 2015 EU-wide transparency data

    The transparency exercise data published by the European Banking Authority (EBA) on 24 November 2015 contained information regarding the ‘fully loaded’ CET1 ratio’ for all EU banks in the sample. This ratio, which was published for information only, is calculated using existing supervisory reporting data. The EBA has been alerted that there was an error in the published ‘fully loaded CET1 ratio’ for some banks due to double counting of excess deductions from AT1 capital. The ‘fully loaded CET1 ratio’ for all individual banks published by the EBA has, therefore, been removed from the interactive tool on the website. The aggregate figures in the EBA’s report will be updated accordingly.

    The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today the outcome of its 2015 EU-wide transparency exercise and provided detailed bank-by-bank data on capital positions, risk exposure amounts and asset quality on 105 banks from 21 countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) as part of its ongoing commitment to enhancing transparency in the EU Banking sector. The data, which shows improvements in the resilience of the EU banking sector, is published at the highest level of consolidation, covering around 70% of total EU banking assets for the reference dates of 31 December 2014 and 30 June 2015. By disclosing these fully comparable figures in user friendly formats, the EBA aims to promote greater understanding of capital positions and exposures of the EU banking sector and foster market discipline in the Single Market.
