The report sets out the impact of the Basel III framework, including the December 2017 finalisation of the Basel III reforms and the January 2019 finalisation of the market risk framework.

Highlights of the Basel III monitoring exercise as of 31 December 2021

  • Initial Basel III capital ratios increase to the highest level since the beginning of the exercise
  • Impact of final Basel III standards lower compared to previous exercises
