EBA published its tenth report on risks and vulnerabilities in the banking sector in EU. The report is accompanied by the 2017 EU-wide transparency exercise, which provides key data for 132 banks across the EU in a comparable and accessible format.
The data show further resilience in the EU banking sector amid a benign macroeconomic and financial environment, with an additional strengthening of the capital position, an improvement of asset quality, and a slight increase of profitability. However, further progress on nonperforming loans (NPLs) is needed while the long-term sustainability of prevailing business models remains a challenge. The importance of robust data management and IT and operational resilience is also a priority.
EBA has been conducting transparency exercises at EU-wide level on an annual basis since 2011. Similar to the Risk Assessment Report, the transparency exercise fully relies on supervisory reporting data. Along with the dataset, EBA also provides a wide range of interactive tools that allow users to compare and visualize data by using maps and excel spreadsheets at a country and a bank-by-bank level.
