On 30 July 2021, the European Central Bank (ECB) published the results of its 2021 stress test.

The stress test shows that the euro area banking system is resilient to adverse economic developments. The Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio of the 89 ECB supervised banks in the stress test would fall by an average of 5.2 percentage points, to 9.9% from 15.1%, if they were exposed to a three-year stress period marked by challenging macroeconomic conditions.

For the first time, the ECB has also published selected information for the 51 medium-sized banks that are not part of the European Banking Authority stress test sample.
