The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has published the results of its latest Basel III monitoring exercise. Data for the monitoring exercise was provided for a total of 230 banks, comprising 101 Group 1 banks (being large internationally active banks having Tier 1 capital of more than €3 billion) and 129 Group 2 banks (i.e. representative of all other banks).

On a fully phased-in basis, data as of 30 June 2015 show that all large internationally active banks meet the Basel III risk-based capital minimum common equity Tier 1 (CET 1) requirements as well as the target level of 7% (plus the surcharges on global systemically important banks as applicable). There was also no capital shortfall for Group 2 banks included in the sample for the CET 1 minimum of 4.5%.
