Municipality Finance’s capital adequacy remains well above the ECB minimum requirements
The European Central Bank has updated the capital buffer requirement (P2R) imposed on Municipality Finance Plc (MuniFin) as part of the yearly Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP). The requirement was kept unchanged at 2 percent. The updated capital buffer requirement is effective on 1 January 2023. When taking into account the P2R, the total SREP capital requirement (TSCR) ratio is currently 10 percent.
MuniFin’s capital adequacy ratio exceeds the requirement by multiple times. At the end of June 2022, both the Group’s total capital ratio and CET1 capital ratio were 83.8 percent.
MuniFin is supervised by the European Central Bank and the continuous SREP is part of the banking supervision activities. The banking supervision aims to ensure that credit institutions have appropriate risk management methods in place, as well as sufficient capital and liquidity.
