EU Capital exercise

This section is dedicated to the EBA Capital exercise (also called recapitalisation exercise) and provides information about the methodologies used, as well as additional supporting information released by the EBA during the conduct of the exercise.

The EBA Capital exercise was conducted in 2011/2012. It was not a stress test but a one-off exercise performed in the context of a series of coordinated policy measures to restore confidence in the EU banking sector. Against the developments in the markets and the deterioration of the sovereign debt crisis in Europe, the EBA reviewed banks' actual capital positions and sovereign exposures and requested them to set aside additional capital buffers.
