ECB raises 2020 capital requirements for Commerzbank

The ECB raised the common equity Tier 1 requirement for Commerzbank AG to 10.63% beginning Jan. 1, 2020, from 10.11% for 2019.

The bank's additional capital requirement for Pillar 2 was unchanged at 2%.

The CET1 requirement comprises a minimum CET1 ratio of 4.5%, the 2% Pillar 2 requirement, a 2.5% capital conservation buffer, a 1.5% buffer for other systemically important institutions, or O-SII, and a countercyclical capital buffer of 0.13%.

As of September-end, Commerzbank's CET1 ratio was 12.8%, above the regulatory requirements.

The bank expects that the planned sale of Polish unit mBank SA will increase the likelihood of the German O-SII buffer to fall by 50 basis points in the future.
