EBA Warns of £135bn Bank Shortfall for Basel IV

Share article

The European Banking Authority (EBA) has warned that the EU’s biggest banks could face a funding gap of up to £135bn in order to comply with Basel IV, an updated set of post-crisis regulations expected to be phased in from 2022 and be in full force by 2027. The EBA estimates that banks could face an average 2.8% decline in their core capital in order to meet the new requirements, which include a 24.4% increase in minimum capital levels and are designed to restrict the use of internal models to calculate risk.
