Liquidity coverage ratios at Europe's largest banks in Q3

European banks with more than €100 billion in assets reported a mixed bag of results in terms of liquidity coverage ratios in the third quarter, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence data.

Of the banks in the sample, 17 saw quarterly increases in the ratio while 18 posted declines.

Sweden's Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB booked the biggest quarterly rise in liquidity coverage ratio of 25.13 percentage points to 174.0%. On the other end, France-based Groupe BPCE posted the steepest decline and the lowest ratio in the list, shedding 23.0 percentage points to 110.0%.

Italy's Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA led the bunch with the strongest ratio at 211.4%, a 10.30-percentage-point increase from the second quarter, followed by Spain's Bankia SA, whose ratio clocked in at 197.0%.

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.
