EBA STRESS TEST RE-AFFIRMS STRONG CAPITAL POSITON OF LLOYDS BANKING GROUP

Lloyds Banking Group plc (the 'Group'), together with 51 other financial institutions across Europe has been subject to the 2016 EU-wide stress test conducted by the European Banking Authority (the 'EBA'). The stress test does not contain a pass/fail threshold but is instead designed to be used as an input into the supervisory review process by assessing banks' ability to meet applicable capital requirements under stressed conditions.

 

Result of the stress test

The Group's estimated CET1 ratio, using the CRDIV transitional rules as implemented in the UK by the PRA, starts at a pro-forma CET1 ratio of 13.0 per cent as at December 2015 and in the EBA Adverse scenario the forecast ratio is 10.1 per cent as at December 2018. The Group's result on a fully loaded basis remains a CET1 ratio of 10.1 per cent in 2018. At the same time the Group's fully loaded leverage ratio moves from 5.2 per cent to 4.6 per cent.

 

These results are significantly above the Group's minimum capital requirements. This outcome reflects the de-risking undertaken and re-affirms the strong capital and balance sheet position of the Group.

 

The results of the PRA stress test will be disclosed later on in the year. There are material methodology differences to the EBA stress test which uses a prescribed and standardised methodology and is based on a static balance sheet as at December 2015. This significantly limits the ability to draw direct comparisons between the two exercises.

 

Further details

Further details with respect to the Group's financial performance and future business strategy were provided on 28 July at the 2016 Half-Year Results announcement.

 

The detailed results of the stress test in relation to all participating banks under the baseline and adverse scenarios are published on the EBA website. The disclosure tables are based on the common format provided by the EBA.


 

 

Notes to Editors

Details of the EBA prescribed methodology for the stress test can be found at: [http://www.eba.europa.eu/-/eba-launches-2016-eu-wide-stress-test-exercise]. 

 

The methodology includes a number of conditions and assumptions which are not reflected in the PRA stress. Examples include:

 

•    Assumption of a static balance sheet (i.e. total assets remain at 2015 level)

•    Net Interest Income capped at 2015 levels, as well as caps on new business pricing

•    Market risk shock floor based on historical volatility and inability to recover in outer years

•    Costs floored at 2015 levels, subject to the exclusion of agreed one-offs (TSB)

 

Fully loaded rules have been published to assist in the comparability of results but it should be noted that there still exist differences between UK and European versions of fully loaded.

 

Results are published in Euros and so the stress forecasts, per the EBA methodology, are translated at a constant exchange rate as of 31 December 2015 of 1.36249.

 

Neither the baseline scenario nor the adverse scenario illustrated in the templates should in any way be construed as a forecast, or be directly compared to other information published by the Group. These results do not take into account future business strategies and management actions and is not a predictor of future financial outcomes.
