Large Spanish banks' liquidity coverage ratios rise QOQ in Q2

Spain's CaixaBank SA, Banco Santander SA and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA are among 18 large European banks that reported quarter-over-quarter increases in liquidity coverage ratios in the three-month period ended June 30, which is up from 16 banks in the first quarter, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

CaixaBank posted the highest quarterly increase among banks in the sample of 24 percentage points to 218% while Santander and BBVA saw their liquidity coverage ratios increase quarter over quarter by 12 percentage points to 150% and 0.86 percentage point to 127%, respectively.

In contrast, Bayerische Landesbank AöR posted the steepest decline in the ratio among the banks in the sample of 28.32 percentage points to 131%.

Credit Suisse Group AG remained on top of the table with a ratio of 225.86%, up 17.51 percentage points on a quarterly basis, while Groupe BPCE has the lowest ratio of 110%.

The liquidity coverage ratio measures banks' ability to withstand cash outflows, and is calculated by dividing a firm's stock of high-quality liquid assets by total net cash outflows over a certain period. The sample included banks with more than €100 billion in assets as of the end of March under S&P Global Market Intelligence coverage.
