Global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs) and, subject to national discretion, other systemically important institutions (O-SIIs) must fulfil supplementary requirements concerning the amount of Common Equity Tier 1 capital they must hold as a buffer. These buffers aim to address the potential negative effects that these institutions might have on the international or domestic financial system if they were to fail.
The European Banking Authority has drafted technical standards and guidelines for identifying G-SIIs and O-SIIs.
The following table shows the number of systemically important institutions and the range of the G-SII and O-SII buffer rates notified to the ESRB in 2020:
|Country||Number of O-SIIs||O-SII buffer range||Number of G-SIIs||G-SII buffer range|
The respective country pages showing the names of the G-SIIs and O-SIIs and their buffer rates can be accessed via links provided in the first column of the overview table.
The names of the G-SIIs and O-SIIs and their respective buffer rates are updated annually (last updated: 26 November 2021).
