Decision on Establishing a List of Systemically Important Banks in the Republic of Serbia and Capital Buffer Rates for Those Banks Adopted
At its meeting on 14 June 2018, the NBS Executive Board adopted the Decision on Establishing a List of Systemically Important Banks in the Republic of Serbia and Capital Buffer Rates for Those Banks expressed as a percentage of the bank’s risk assets.
As part of its responsibility to set measures and activities aimed at maintaining and strengthening financial stability, and based on the Decision on Capital Adequacy of Banks (RS Official Gazette, No 103/2016), the NBS reviews the capital buffer rates for systemically important banks at least annually.
The capital buffer for a systemically important bank is a macroprudential instrument which imposes an obligation on banks identified as systemically important for a given country to maintain additional Common Equity Tier 1 capital at the level of 0% to 2% of the bank’s risk-weighted assets.
The Decision will come into force on 30 June 2018.
Additional information about the capital buffer rates for systemically important banks, as well as the list of systemically important banks and capital buffer rates for those banks can be found on the NBS website, in the part Financial Stability, Capital Buffers.
