Model review adds €13bn to ING’s RWAs

Changes to risk models following a supervisory review caused Dutch lender ING’s risk-weighted assets to bloat +2% in the final quarter of 2019, even as balance sheet assets contracted –3%.

RWAs increased by a net €6.7 billion ($7.4 billion) in Q4 2019. A €13.2 billion RWA add-on, equivalent to 4% of ING’s total, was applied in the final quarter, more than offsetting RWA decreases caused by improvements to the credit quality of its portfolio and positive foreign exchange effects.
