The European Banking Authority (EBA) published 12 indicators and updated the underlying data from the 35 largest institutions in the EU, whose leverage ratio exposure measure exceeds EUR 200 bn. This end-2017 data contributes to the internationally agreed basis on which a smaller subset of banks will be identified as global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs), following the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the

Financial Stability Board (FSB) final assessments. The EBA, acting as a central data hub in the disclosure process, will update this data on a yearly basis and will provide a user-friendly platform to aggregate it across the EU.

A stable sample of 33 institutions shows that aggregate values for level 3 assets decreased by 20% from end-2016 and by 39% from end-2014, while for assets under custody, the total amount increased by 7% from end-2016 and by 16% from end-2013.  Intra financial system assets and liabilities both observed a decrease from end-2016, by 6% and 7% respectively. Total exposures for these 33 institutions, as measured for the leverage ratio, decreased by 1.1% and stood at EUR 24.3 trillion at the end of 2017.
