Basel Committee passes big banks
March 6, 2018

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published its Basel III Monitoring Report today. The report covers the period to June 30 last year.

It says that all banks in the sample meet the Basel III minimum and target common equity tier 1 (CET1) capital requirements as agreed up to end-2015 and that all global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) meet both fully phased-in liquidity minimum requirements.

Information was provided by voluntary and confidential data submissions from individual banks and their national supervisors. A total of 193 banks, including 106 large internationally active (Group 1) banks, took part in the exercise. These included all 30 G-SIBs and 87 other banks (Group 2).

The average Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio under the fully phased-in Basel III framework increased from 12.3 percent at end-December 2016 to 12.5 percent for Group 1 banks and from 13.4 percent to 14.7 percent for Group 2 banks.
