Japanese banks post highest Q3 liquidity coverage ratios among Asian banks

Japan's Norinchukin Bank, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. and Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Holdings Inc. reported the highest liquidity coverage ratios as of September-end, while also placing among the five Asia-Pacific banks reporting the greatest year-over-over rises in the ratio.

Norinchukin Bank saw a 109.50-percentage-point rise in its liquidity coverage ratio to 560.40%, far ahead of all the other lenders analyzed.

The ratio represents a bank's ability to withstand a liquidity crunch and is calculated as high-quality liquid assets as a percentage of net cash outflows over a certain period. Under Basel III, banks have to achieve a minimum liquidity coverage ratio of 100% by Jan. 1, 2019.

On the other hand, Japan-based Mizuho Financial Group Inc. posted the biggest year-over-year drop among the largest banks in Asia-Pacific with assets above US$300 billion, at 11.30 percentage points. The bank was the only Japanese entity to see a decline from Sept. 30, 2016.

Meanwhile, seven Chinese banks reported ratios below 100%, with China Merchants Bank Co. Ltd. posting the lowest liquidity coverage ratio among the sample of 86.62%.
