The European Banking Authority (EBA) today published its quarterly Risk Dashboard together with the results of the autumn edition of the Risk Assessment Questionnaire (RAQ).
- Overall, banks maintain robust capital and liquidity ratios.
- The average Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio declined slightly to 14.8% from 15% in the previous quarter on a fully loaded basis.
- The average Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) reached 162.5% (164.9% in Q2 2022) while the average Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR) remained at 126.9%.
- The non-performing loan (NPL) ratio declined slightly to just below 1.8%. However, banks’ asset quality expectations have further deteriorated, notably for SME and consumer finance.
- Average return on equity (RoE) remains stable supported by increases in net interest income
