Rabobank sees 5–10% RWA inflation from Basel III

Dutch mortgage floor and other model curbs set to accelerate reforms’ impact

Rabobank expects the final Basel III reforms to lift risk-weighted assets (RWAs) by between 5% and 10% from their January 1 level of €224 billion ($254 billion) – although a flurry of incoming model curbs may effectively bring the impact forward.

The co-operative lender’s forecast implied the package of reforms, in the current version proposed by the European Commission, would add between €11 billion and €22 billion to its RWAs.
