THE HAGUE, Netherlands, February 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
As part of the annual Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP), the European Central Bank sets the total SREP capital requirement for BNG Bank at 10.25%, effective as of 1 March 2019.
This total SREP capital requirement consists of (i) the minimum CET1 requirement under Pillar 1 (4.5%), (ii) the Pillar 1 Additional Tier 1 requirement (1.5%), (iii) the Pillar 1 Tier 2 requirement (2%), (iv) the Pillar 2 CET1 capital requirement (Pillar 2 requirement, 2.25%). Including the buffer requirements (the capital conservation buffer , 2.5% CET1) and the Other Systemic Important Institution buffer (OSII, 1.00%), this results in an Overall Capital Requirement of 13.75%.
As of 30 June 2018, the Tier 1 capital ratio amounts to 38%. As such, BNG Bank's capitalization is substantially above the ECB requirement.
