European banks will see their counterparty risk capital requirements rise by over 150% if the region's exemptions for trades with corporates, pension funds and sovereigns are removed, according to the European Banking Authority (EBA). One unnamed bank faces a three-percentage point reduction in its equity capital ratio.
