EBA publishes key information on the systemic importance of the 37 largest banks in the EU

Default: Change to:

The European Banking Authority published the key metrics used to identify global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs) in the EU, with information on size, interconnectedness, substitutability, complexity and cross-jurisdictional activity.

The EBA's regulatory package on G-SIIs identification and data disclosure are in line with the internationally agreed framework developed by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS).

To promote a level playing field in the EU regarding the disclosure requirements and to increase transparency, the EBA goes beyond the minimum standards required by the BCBS, both in terms of granularity of the disclosed information and applicable scope of institutions. Therefore, some of the group-specific values published today include institutions that did not contribute directly to the BCBS's G-SIB exercise.

This year's disclosure exercise covers 37 EU institutions whose leverage ratio exposure measure exceeded 200 billion Euro in 2014.

While each participating institution discloses this information individually, the EBA acts as a central data hub in the disclosure process, providing a platform to aggregate data across the EU with an user-friendly excel tool. The EBA will continue to disclose this data on an annual basis.
