EBA consults on recovery plan indicators: EBA is consulting, until 2 January, on guidelines on the indicators that a bank must establish to decide when it needs to start adopting actions under its recovery plan. The guidelines specify a minimum list of categories (capital, liquidity, profitability and asset quality) that should be covered by specific indicators in a recovery plan, and two optional categories (markets and macro economy) which can be ignored where not relevant to a particular bank. The guidelines also set out specific indicators for each category, which banks may also decide not to apply where not relevant to their characteristics.
