On 23 September 2019, the European Banking Authority (EBA) announced that it was launching its latest EU wide transparency exercise. In November, the EBA will release data points on about 130 EU banks. The data will cover capital positions, financial assets, risk exposure amounts, sovereign exposures and asset quality. As with previous transparency exercises, this latest exercise will be exclusively based on supervisory reporting data, which is intended to keep the burden for banks to a minimum.
