Data presentation - Summary description

Aggregated supervisory banking statistics contain information on the following aspects of banks designated as significant institutions (SI) as well as less significant institutions (LSI):


  • balance sheet composition and profitability
  • capital adequacy
  • leverage
  • asset quality
  • funding
  • liquidity

The sample of institutions considered for each reporting period comprises banks that are reporting COREP (capital adequacy information) and FINREP (financial information) at that point in time. For each bank in the sample, data are considered at the highest level of consolidation covered by the Single Supervisory Mechanism.
