The European Banking Authority (EBA) has published the key metrics used to identify global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs) in the EU, with information on size, interconnectedness, substitutability, complexity and cross-jurisdictional activity of the 37 EU institutions whose leverage ratio exposure measure exceeded EUR200 billion in 2014.

Although the EBA’s regulatory package on G-SIIs identification and data disclosure are in line with the internationally agreed framework developed by the Financial Stability Board and by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS), the EBA has gone beyond the minimum standards required by the BCBS, both in terms of granularity of the disclosed information and applicable scope of institutions.
