Cash burn drives UBS’s LCR lower in Q3

Swiss bank’s HQLA at lowest level since public disclosure began

UBS’s liquidity coverage ratio fell by seven percentage points in Q3 as the lender spent cash and cut its debt pile.

The firm’s LCR – calculated by dividing its stock of high-quality liquid assets (HQLAs) by estimated net cash outflows in a period of stress – dropped to 137.7% on average in the third quarter of the year, down from 144.3% in the second.
