ECB sets new minimum capital requirement for Banco Santander

The ECB revised the prudential minimum capital requirements for Banco Santander SA and will require the Spanish lender to maintain a common equity Tier 1 ratio of at least 9.7% on a consolidated basis from Jan 1, 2020.

The 9.7% buffer includes the Pillar 1 requirement of 4.5%, Pillar 2 requirement of 1.5%, the capital conservation buffer of 2.5%, the 1% requirement deriving from its consideration as a global systemic financial institution and the countercyclical buffer of 0.2%.

As of Sept. 30, the bank's consolidated fully loaded CET1 ratio stood at 11.3%.
