Basel III monitoring report.
This report presents the results of the Basel Committee's latest Basel III monitoring exercise, based on data as of 30 June 2019. The report sets out the impact of the Basel III framework that was initially agreed in 2010 as well as the effects of the Committee's December 2017 finalisation of the Basel III reforms and the finalisation of the market risk framework published in January 2019. Given the June 2019 reporting date, the results do not reflect the economic impact of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) on participating banks. Nevertheless, the Committee believes that the information contained in the report will provide relevant stakeholders with a useful benchmark for analysis.
Data are provided for 174 banks, including 105 large internationally active banks. These "Group 1" banks are defined as internationally active banks that have Tier 1 capital of more than 3 billion, and include all 30 institutions that have been designated as global systemically important banks (G-SIBs). The Basel Committee's sample also includes 69 "Group 2" banks (ie banks that have Tier 1 capital of less than 3 billion or are not internationally active).
As recently agreed by the Group of Governors and Heads of Supervision, implementation of the final Basel III minimum requirements has been deferred to 1January 2023, and they will be fully phased in by 1 January 2028. The average impact of the fully phased-in final BaselIII framework on the Tier 1 minimum required capital (MRC) of Group1 banks is lower (+2.5%) when compared with the 3.0% increase at end-December 2018. For this calculation, for two G-SIBs that are outliers due to overly conservative assumptions under the revised market risk framework, zero change from the revised market risk framework has been assumed for the calculation of 30June 2019 results. If these two banks are reflected with their conservative market risk numbers, there is a 2.8% increase.
The report also provides data on the initial Basel III minimum capital requirements, total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC) and Basel III's liquidity requirements.
