Scope and sequence of the comprehensive assessment
Measured against total assets, the comprehensive assessment covers approximately 65% of the German banking sector. The ECB has stipulated a minimum ratio of 8% core tier 1 capital as the target for the balance-sheet assessment, which will be part of the comprehensive assessment. The transitional rules applicable from 1 January 2014 will be taken into consideration.
The comprehensive assessment took about twelve months. The national supervisory authorities of the euro area and the ECB have been cooperating closely with each other. They have, moreover, been supported by independent consultants and auditors. BaFin and the Bundesbank have made use of external auditors' expertise, as is customary in reviews of recoverability.
The assessment comprised the following three elements:
The risk assessment is comparable to the supervisory review process in Germany and covered all significant bank risks.
The balance-sheet assessment focused first and foremost on the quality of the main assets and their valuation. However, it also involved valuing loan collateral and checking whether banks' risk provisioning is appropriate.
The forward-looking stress test has been performed in cooperation with the European Banking Authority (EBA) and examined banks’ resilience under adverse economic conditions.
