Leverage ratio

The leverage ratio is a new monitoring tool which will allow competent authorities to assess the risk of excessive leverage in their respective institutions. According to the CRR, the latter will have to report all necessary information on the leverage ratio and its components. In this respect, the EBA is developing a draft ITS on supervisory reporting requirements for the leverage ratio, which aims at providing national authorities with harmonised information on the leverage ratio using uniform reporting formats. Other work on the leverage ratio includes the development of a draft ITS in anticipation of the required disclosure of the leverage ratio, which is expected to start in January 2015. In addition, the EBA will continue to assess the impact of the leverage ratio as a binding measure.
