Supplementary notes

According to the source, the 2016 EU-wide stress test is based on a general macroeconomic downturn scenario over a three-year time-horizon and does not contain a pass fail threshold. It is designed to be used as a crucial input into the SREP in 2016. The adverse scenario implies EU real GDP growth rates over the three years of the exercise of -1.2 percent, -1.3 percent and 0.7 percent respectively - a deviation of 7.1 percent from its baseline level in 2018.

The numbers shown depict the Common Equity Tier 1 ratio. Tier 1 capital is a measurement of a bank's core equity against its total risk-weighted assets and shows the bank's financial strength. The higher the number, the more reserves a bank has for unexpected situations.
