The ECB also publishes selected Pillar 3 information for individual banks on:
The dataset includes information on banks directly supervised by ECB Banking Supervision that are designated as significant institutions (SIs).
The sample of SIs considered for each reporting period includes banks that are reporting COREP (capital adequacy information) and FINREP (financial information) at that point in time. For each bank in the sample, reporting is always considered at the highest level of consolidation within the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM).
As of the end of 2015, COREP and FINREP data are available for all SIs at the highest level of consolidation within the SSM. This includes those that prepare their consolidated accounts under national accounting standards (nGAAP) as well as SIs that report only at the individual level. As a result, the sample of banks used for each reference period currently covers all significant institutions within the SSM– it is also relatively stable. Nevertheless, changes in the sample can occur over time after amendments to the list of SIs, which are made after ECB assessments, as well as after mergers and acquisitions.
In accordance with Article 11(3) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR), liquidity requirements apply only at the highest level of consolidation in the European Union (EU). Accordingly, the tables showing information on the liquidity coverage ratio are derived by aggregating data from standalone entities and for the banking groups where the ultimate EU parent is within the SSM.
The tables present different aggregates that offer insights into developments over time, country breakdowns and different classifications.
All presented data match the submissions provided to the ECB at the cut-off date specified in the table above. As banks may resubmit data for previous quarters, figures shown may differ from previous publications. Moreover, banks may submit unaudited end-of-financial-year figures (i.e. figures that have not received an external auditor’s opinion). However, in accordance with Article 3, paragraph 4 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014, banks are required to resubmit audited figures wherever these deviate from the submitted unaudited figures.
The Pillar 3 information, i.e. ratios and the EU OV1 table, are presented as published by the SIs pursuant to Part Eight of the CRR (for some financial holding companies they are published at the subsidiary bank level). The ratios are neither endorsed nor approved by the ECB and are subject to review when they differ from the ratios submitted by the SIs as part of their COREP submissions.

|1) According to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2016/428 and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2016/322 banks are required to report the leverage ratio and the liquidity coverage ratio components, starting from the third quarter of 2016. Only banks that are required to report liquidity information at the highest level of consolidation in the SSM are aggregated in the liquidity coverage ratio shown above.|
In addition to presenting the statistics by reference period and by country, the significant institutions have been classified according to the following:
The statistics are based on information collected pursuant to the Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on Supervisory Reporting laid down by European Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014 and the ECB Regulation on reporting of supervisory financial information (ECB/2015/13).
Confidentiality is ensured in accordance with professional secrecy obligations established under Article 27(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1024/2013, Article 37 of the Statute of the ESCB and of the ECB, and Article 53(1) of Directive 2013/36/EU.
