26th June 2014 PRA clarifies Capital and Leverage Ratio expectations.

Bulletin: The PRA has published a supervisory statement to clarifies its expectations in relation to capital and leverage ratios for the eight major UK banks and building societies (“firms”).

“Firms will be expected to meet:

  • A 7% common equity tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio on the definition of capital set out in the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) and the PRA Rulebook.
  • A 3% end-point Tier 1 Leverage Ratio. For the avoidance of doubt, compliant Additional Tier 1 (AT1) instruments may be included in the numerator, and the Basel 2014 exposure measure should be used for the denominator. The Leverage Ratio should be calculated on an end-of-quarter basis.”
