On July 28, 2015, the European Banking Authority published a table setting out metrics to identify Global Systemically Important Institutions in the EU. The table sets out the size, interconnectedness, substitutability, complexity and cross-jurisdictional activity of the largest 37 banks in the EU whose leverage ratio exposure measure exceeded €200 billion in 2014. This information is disclosed annually by the EBA. G-SIIs are subject to higher capital requirements and their identification as G-SIIs is the responsibility of their national regulator. A higher capital requirement applies one year after the publication by the national regulator of a bank’s scoring result, allowing the bank sufficient time to adjust to the new buffer requirement.
