    ECB Publishes Results of Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process

    April 08, 2019

    ECB published the aggregate outcome of its 2018 Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP). The overall 2018 SREP outcome showed that governance and risk management of banks worsened from the previous SREP cycle, while the assessment of management of liquidity and funding risks remained largely unchanged. The assessment concludes that risk management framework of a number of banks should continue to improve.

    The overall SREP demand for common equity tier 1 (CET1) capital increased to 10.6% in 2018 from 10.1% in 2017, which was driven by the last step of the phase-in of the capital conservation buffer. The overall SREP demand excludes systemic buffers and countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB). Most significant institutions already have capital levels above the CET1 levels and buffers required by ECB and national authorities, respectively. CET1 is the highest quality capital of a bank, consists largely of common stock, and measures the capital strength of a bank. In addition to asking banks to hold certain amounts of capital, ECB also imposed liquidity measures as part of the SREP, which may include improving the process of assessing their liquidity needs, their funding plans, and/or intraday liquidity. Furthermore, ECB imposed qualitative measures on more than eighty banks, covering a wide range of weaknesses from internal governance and risk management to non-performing loans and data quality.

    ECB Banking Supervision prepares an individual SREP decision for each bank it supervises. This is in addition to the daily, ongoing supervision where ECB supervisors assess a bank’s business model, governance, and risk as well as its capital and liquidity. The results of the stress test conducted in 2018 also informed the SREP decision. The ECB Banking Supervision has conducted four SREP exercises since 2014. Using common methodology and common decision-making processes has allowed ECB to compare peers and analyze banks on a broader scale.
