CEBS today publishes a quantitative survey of eligible own funds

Date: 15/06/2007

The Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS) is publishing today a quantitative analysis of the capital instruments that are eligible for prudential purposes in the application of the European Banking Directives.

It is the fourth contribution of CEBS to the European Commission's current review of the definition of Own Funds. The analysis complements the CEBS survey of the implementation of the current rules across Member States, its analysis of the capital instruments recently created by the industry, and a quantitative analysis of hybrid capital instruments eligible as original own funds. These surveys have been published in June 2006 and March 2007.
