Link Securities | The European Central Bank (ECB) has allowed Banco Santander to apply its own capital calculation model for its Brazilian subsidiary. The approval arrived seven days after Santander presented its 2015 results, so they don’t reflect the effect of the new measure.

This will have an impact of 14 basis points on the bank’s CET1 fully-loaded ratio, which will now stand at around 10.19% compared to 10.05% in 2015.

We recall that Santander’s chairperson, Ana Botín, has comitted to reaching over 11% by end-2018.
