Report this content

The Board of Directors of Resurs has decided today to change the method used by Resurs Holding’s subsidiary Resurs Bank for measuring operational risk when calculating its capital requirements.

This decision means that Resurs Bank is changing its method for calculating operational risk from the basic indicator method to the standardised method. Applied to the reported total capital ratio and Common Equity Tier 1 ratio for the consolidated situation as per 30 June 2019, the total capital ratio would have increased from 15.0 per cent to 15.5 per cent and the Common Equity Tier 1 ratio would have increased from 13.1 per cent to 13.6 per cent.

Resurs Bank will change its choice of method when its application is sent to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, which is expected to take place before 30 September 2019.
