On March 16, 2015, the European Banking Authority updated its periodic risk dashboard setting out the principal risks and vulnerabilities in the EU banking sector. The dashboard analyses the evolution of risk indicators among a sample of 55 banks across the EU. The dashboard shows that the capital position trends of EU banks are positive and that CET 1 ratios are at their highest levels since 2009. It also shows that levels of profitability tend to be unstable but that balance sheet structures are shifting towards lower loan-to-deposit ratios, and therefore less debt.
