The Financial Stability Board has published the 2019 list of global systemically important banks. Alongside the 2019 G-SIB list, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has published further information relating to its 2019 assessment of G-SIBs, including:
- The denominators of each of the 12 high-level indicators used to calculate the banks’ scores under the G-SIB methodology;
- The 12 high-level indicators used to calculate these denominators; and
- The cutoff score used to identify the G-SIBs in the updated list and the thresholds used to allocate G-SIBs to buckets for the purpose of calculating the specific higher loss absorbency requirements.
The Basel Committee assessment was based on its 2013 methodology for identifying G-SIBs. A revised assessment methodology was published by the Basel Committee in July 2018, which is expected to be implemented by member jurisdictions by 2021.
