Capital buffer, variable (dynamic provisioning)

The proposal that the supervisory authority prescribe a higher regulatory capital ratio for individual institutions in good years. – However, this encounters difficulties for internationally active institutions with operations in different economic areas and uneven business cycles. In addition, it may be difficult to define what constitutes a “good year” for a bank, as there are many possible yardsticks, such as profit, sales, number of existing or new branches, number of employees, or even special ratios derived from certain balance sheet items. – See Banking Supervision, European, Basel-III, Capital Requirements Directive, Cook Ratio, capital adequacy, capital buffer, variable, Financial Soundness Indicators, G-Sifi, Tier 1 capital, leverage ratio, liquidity buffer, mark-to-funding approach. Stabilizers, automatic. – Cf. BaFin’s 2011 Annual Report, p. 154 f. (decisions by EU finance ministers; proposal for a capital buffer by the EBA), Financial Stability Report 2012, p. 90 f.
