Ping An’s LCR hovers above regulatory minimum after Q3 plunge

Lowest ratio in at least four years driven by plummeting HQLAs

Chinese dealer Ping An Bank saw its liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) fall eerily close to the minimum regulatory requirement under Basel III rules in the third quarter.

The bank’s LCR was down 10.6 percentage points to 101.3% at the end of the third quarter, only just clearing the 100% minimum threshold.

The figure marked the smallest LCR for the bank since at least 2019 and the lowest on record for any of the 13 Chinese lenders tracked by Risk Quantum.
