Lloyds Banking Group alert service

RNS Number : 5143Q
Lloyds Banking Group PLC
30 November 2016








30 November 2016


Lloyds Banking Group plc (the 'Group'), together with six other financial institutions in the UK, has

been subject to the 2016 stress test conducted by the Bank of England (the 'BoE').


The test assesses banks' capital adequacy against their own minimum Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital and Tier 1 leverage thresholds. For the Group these thresholds are 7.0 per cent for CET1 (4.5 per cent Pillar 1 mimima plus 2.5 per cent Group specific Pillar 2a) and 3 per cent for Tier 1 leverage.


In addition, the test also includes a 'systemic reference point' ('SRP') assessment for globally systemic banks ('G-SIBs'). As the Group is not a G-SIB, this hurdle rate does not apply.


This year's stress test has been designed under the BoE's new annual cyclical framework, with the severity of the stress reflecting the BoE's Financial Policy Committee (the 'FPC') and the Prudential Regulation Authority (the 'PRA') Board's assessment of imbalances across financial markets and the global and UK economies. This resulted in a more severe stress for the UK economy than in the 2015 scenario. The key economic assumptions impacting the Group's operations included UK unemployment peaking at 9.5 per cent, and UK house and commercial property prices falling 31 per cent and 42 per cent, respectively.


Result of the stress test


Despite the more severe stress on the UK economy, the Group comfortably exceeds the higher capital and leverage thresholds set out for the purpose of the stress test; therefore, it is not required to take any capital action as a result of this stress test.


In the trough of the stress, the BoE calculated the Group's estimated CET1 ratio as 9.7 per cent and its leverage ratio as 4.1 per cent pre-management actions, and 10.3 per cent and 4.3 per cent post-management actions, respectively, compared with a reported CET1 ratio of 12.8 per cent and leverage ratio of 4.8 per cent as at 31 December 2015.


The CET1 ratio low point under stress has improved since the 2015 exercise despite the more severe UK stress, reflecting the successful de-risking undertaken by the Group.


This re-affirms the strong capital and balance sheet position of the Group.


Further details


Details of the PRA approach to the stress test and the detailed results in relation to all participating banks are available from the Bank of England's website.
