Four UK banks improve resilience to stress tests compared with 2018

Barclays, Lloyds, RBS and Standard Chartered cleared the 2019 Bank of England stress-test capital requirements with more room to spare than in 2018, Risk Quantum analysis shows.

Each of the seven stress-test participants had to exceed minimum stressed Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio targets – or hurdle rates – set by the BoE.

In aggregate, the participants cleared the minimum hurdle rate by 240 basis points, compared with 190bp in 2018.
