Just to illustrate my previous post on NZ bank capital, the recent dashboard has shown a drop in CET1 capital ratios.
The September size adjusted Net CET1 ratio was 11.35%, down from 11.43% in June. Contributing to the drop are, in particular, big banks ANZ and Westpac.
Unfortunately, the recent FSR report spins the ratios: “Bank capital and liquidity ratios are in excess of current regulatory requirements, and have increased over the past 12 months.” But note, the ratios dropped over the last quarter.
