ECB’s comprehensive assessment concluded with Rentenbank's equity ratios well above minimum requirements

26 October 2014

The results of the comprehensive assessment carried out by the European Central Bank (ECB) show Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbank's equity ratios will be significantly above the required minimum ratios until end of 2016 under both, baseline and stress assumptions. This was disclosed by the ECB today.

In detail, Rentenbank's Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (CET1) until end of 2016 reaches at least 16.11 percent in the baseline scenario, and at least 12.89 percent in the adverse scenario. This means, that both ratios are comfortably above the required minimum ratios of the two scenarios, which are 8.0 percent and 5.5 percent, respectively. At December 31, 2013, Rentenbank's corresponding Tier 1 capital ratio as defined by the CRR was 16.92 percent. The leverage ratio came to 3.57 percent.

In the context of uniform banking supervision, which will in future be carried out by the ECB on the basis of the Single Supervisory Mechanism Regulation, Rentenbank has been classified as a 'significant' institution because its total assets of €81.93 billion at December 31, 2013, are above the €30 billion threshold. As a result, the ECB comprehensive assessment, which consisted of an asset quality review and a stress test, was mandatory for Rentenbank.

A total of 130 European banks were subject to the ECB comprehensive assessment, 24 of which were German institutions.
