BoComm’s CET1 ratio drops to lowest since 2013

RWAs jumped 8% in the first half, dragging capital adequacy down 63bp

Bank of Communication (BoComm)’s risk-weighted assets (RWAs) jumped 8% in the first half of the year, helping push its core capital adequacy to its lowest level in more than eight years.

The bank’s RWAs hit eight trillion yuan ($1.2 trillion) at end-June, up 576 billion yuan in six months. An 11 billion-yuan increase in Common Equity Tier 1 capital was not enough to prevent the CET1 ratio from falling 69 basis points to 9.99% – the lowest since end-2013.
