Assets to equity ratio of banks in Belgium 2010-2015, by bank cluster This statistic shows the assets to equity ratio of banks in Belgium from 2010 to 2015, by bank cluster. In 2015, the bank cluster of "big universal banks" (including BNP Paribas Fortis, Belfius Bank, ING and KBC Group) reached an assets to equity ratio of approximately 14.7 percent, which is a decrease from the 22.2 percent reached in 2011. This indicates that the big Belgian banks have decreased their leverage (debt) between 2011 and 2015. The Belgian banking sector has two important characteristics. First, banking is deemed an important part of Belgian culture with a relative high number of bank offices in the country. In 2015, for example, the total number of offices of the big banks established in Belgium (BNP Paribas Fortis, KBC Bank, Belfius Bank and ING Belgium) reached approximately 3,180 in the whole country. This is due to the fact that many banking offices in Belgium are managed by entrepreneurs who are not directly on the payroll of the bank itself. Consequently, the decrease of bank branches, which characterizes the financial sector in most European countries, happens at a slower rate. Between 2008 and 2015, the population serviced by one credit institution increased from approximately 102,000 people in 2008 to approximately 113,000 people in 2015.

Second, the Belgian banking landscape has the presence of several big non-Belgian banking concerns, notably Dutch bank ING and France-based BNP Paribas. In 2016, BNP Paribas Fortis reached a phased-in Common Equity Tier 1 (CET 1) ratio of approximately 14 percent.
