The notification from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (SFSA) regarding Avanza’s Pillar 2 guidance on the leverage ratio is fully consistent with the expectation of 0.9 per cent. The total leverage ratio requirement thereby amounts to 3.9%.
The SFSA has concluded its Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) of Avanza and decided on a Pillar 2 requirement (P2R) and Pillar 2 guidance (P2G) on Avanza’s consolidated situation consisting of Avanza Bank Holding AB, Avanza Bank AB and Avanza Fonder AB.
Avanza’s capitalisation is determined by the leverage ratio requirement. The SFSA has informed Avanza of Pillar 2 guidance on the leverage ratio requirement at the Group level of 0.9 per cent, beyond the minimum requirement for the leverage ratio of 3.0 per cent. This is fully consistent with previously announced expectations. Avanza reported a leverage ratio of 4.4 per cent as of 30 June 2022.
The SFSA has also decided on a Pillar 2 requirement of 3.59 per cent of the Group’s total risk exposure amount as well as a Pillar 2 requirement for Avanza Bank AB. The capital ratios at the Group level as well as for the bank exceed by a good margin the requirements set by the SFSA.
