ECB determines SREP P2R capital requirement for Commerzbank for 2024

In the annual Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) the European Central Bank has determined the bank-specific capital requirements for the Commerzbank Group in 2024. The additional own funds requirement for Pillar 2 (P2R) slightly increases by 25 bp to 2.25% of total capital, of which at least 1.27% must be covered with Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital. The SREP decision replaces the previous SREP decision with effect from 1 January 2024.

As of 30 September 2023, the pro forma CET1 requirement for Commerzbank Group amounts to 10.27% of risk weighted assets (MDA threshold) when applying the new SREP decision. The requirement consists of the CET1 minimum requirement of 4.5%, the P2R of 1.27%, the capital conservation buffer of 2.5%, the capital buffer for otherwise systemically important institutions of 1.25%, the countercyclical capital buffer of currently 0.63%, the sectoral systemic risk buffer of currently 0.1% and an AT1 shortfall of currently 0.02%.

With a CET1 ratio of 14.6% as of September 2023 Commerzbank is well above the MDA threshold. The requirements are reflected in Commerzbank’s strategic planning as well as in the target equity ratio of 13.5%.
