EBA report finds banks €199 billion short of Basel target


The largest banks in Europe are €199 billion ($257 billion) below capital requirements targeted in Basel III regulation, the European Banking Authority (EBA) revealed on September 27.

By 2019, ‘group 1' banks must achieve the minimum requirement of holding 4.5% of the best quality Tier I capital, and there is currently a shortfall of €8 billion ($10 billion)
