ECB publishes Consolidated Banking Data for end-September 2017
- Total assets of credit institutions headquartered in the EU decreased year on year by 2.8%, from €34 trillion in September 2016 to €33 trillion in September 2017.
- The non-performing loans (NPL) ratio of these credit institutions dropped year on year by 1.14 percentage points, from 5.58% in September 2016 to 4.44% in September 2017.
The European Central Bank (ECB) has published the Consolidated Banking Data (CBD) with reference to end-September 2017, a data set of the European Union (EU) banking system compiled on a group consolidated basis.
The quarterly CBD cover relevant information required for the analysis of the EU banking sector, a subset of the information available in the end-year dataset. The end-September 2017 data refer to 335 banking groups and 3,021 stand-alone credit institutions operating in the EU (including foreign subsidiaries and branches), covering nearly 100% of the EU banking sector balance sheet. This dataset includes an extensive range of indicators on profitability and efficiency, balance sheets, liquidity and funding, asset quality, asset encumbrance, capital adequacy and solvency. Aggregates and indicators are published for the full sample of the banking industry.
Large reporters apply International Financial Reporting Standards and the European Banking Authority (EBA) Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on supervisory reporting, while some smaller reporters may apply national accounting standards. Accordingly, aggregates and indicators also cover data based on national accounting standards, depending on the availability of the underlying items.
Together with the end-September 2017 data a few revisions to past data are disclosed.
