    BaFin Announces AFS Recommendation to Activate CCyB for Banks

    May 27, 2019

    BaFin announced that the Financial Stability Committee (Ausschuss für Finanzstabilität, or AFS) adopted a recommendation to BaFin that the domestic countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB) be activated from the third quarter of 2019 and raised to 0.25%. The frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the first time increase in CCyB have also been published.

    CCyB will apply to banks and preemptively strengthen the resilience of the financial system to cyclical systemic risks. Banks must meet the new requirements within twelve months of their activation. The measure supports sustainable lending to the real economy, especially in times of stress. In its analysis and assessment of the risk situation of the German banking system, the Financial Stability Committee considers it necessary to strengthen the loss capacity of the German banking system due to the cyclical systemic risks that could affect financial stability in Germany. The Financial Stability Committee is the central body of macro-prudential supervision of the financial system in Germany. It strengthens the cooperation of institutions responsible for financial stability. The Federal Ministry of Finance, Deutsche Bundesbank, and BaFin are represented in the Committee.
