Bankia To Reach Highest CET1 In Spain After Changes To Assess Its Retail Mortgage Line Regulatory Capital

Bankia has been authorized by the ECB to change the parameters used for its calculation of credit risk linked to its retail mortgage business, according to a statement it published on market regulator CNMV’s website on Tuesday. This will allow Bankia to lift its CET1 capital ratio to 160 bp from 13.27% to 14.87%, the highest among Spanish banks as well as could favor the bank in the merger process with CaixaBank.
