    EBA Updated its Risk Dashboard for 2Q 2017

    October 05, 2017

    EBA published an update of its Risk Dashboard for the second quarter of 2017. The dashboard summarizes the key risks and vulnerabilities in the EU banking sector through a set of risk indicators. The figures included in the Risk Dashboard are based on a sample of 152 banks, covering more than 80% of the EU banking sector (by total assets), at the highest level of consolidation, while country aggregates may also include large subsidiaries. The dashboard shows that progress is positive, but risks remain heightened on asset quality and sustainable profitability.

    The risk dashboard shows slight improvement in the capital level of EU banks but nonperforming loans (NPLs) still affect the profitability of banks. In the second quarter of 2017, the common equity tier 1 ratio (CET1 ratio) reached a new peak since the fourth quarter of 2014, increasing from 14.1% in the first quarter of 2017 to 14.3% in the second quarter of 2017, with all EU countries experiencing an average ratio above 10%. However, this outcome was driven by a reduction of the denominator, with banks decreasing their risk exposure amounts (by EUR 195 billion), particularly for credit risk, also in connection with the liquidation or restructuring of some intermediaries. The quality of banks' loan portfolios continued improving, although the slow progress and wider dispersion among countries remained a concern. The NPLs ratio confirmed its downward trend of the previous quarters, decreasing by 30 basis points to 4.5% (Q2 2017) and reaching its lowest level since the fourth quarter of 2014.
