On 10 January 2019, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published two reports on the consistency of risk weighted assets across all EU institutions authorised to use internal approaches for the calculation of capital requirements. The reports cover credit risk for high and low default portfolios, as well as market risk. The results confirm previous findings, with the majority of risk-weights variability explained by fundamentals. These benchmarking benchmarking exercises, conducted by the EBA on an annual basis are a fundamental supervisory and convergence tool to address unwarranted inconsistencies and restoring trust in internal models.
