European banking sector

Statista DossierPlus on the current banking sector and the continued rise of app-only banks

European banking sector Despite Europe’s continued struggle with profitability, last year saw the banking sector continue to strengthen its position for liquidity, capital, and asset quality. All capital requirements developed by the Basel III accords were being met across Europe, with Non-performing loans at a low of 2.7 percent. The measurements put in place to ensure the stability of Europe’s banking sector will be tested fully by the economic downfall created by the coronavirus, something which is explored in the first chapter of this report.

This Statista DossierPlus takes an in-depth look at the health of the European banking sector, its readiness for the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the continued rise of Europe’s neobanks. The report has extensive chapters covering liquidity, capital and profitability, the size of the banking sector, a dive into Europe’s largest banks as well as an extensive look at the continued rise of app-only banks. ​
