August 10, 2016 – On August 3, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published a new report on the impact assessment and calibration of the Leverage Ratio (LR), suggesting that it should lead to more sound and resilient credit institutions overall. EBA recommends introducing the LR minimum requirement in the EU to mitigate the risk of excessive leverage.

In the report, EBA makes a reference to the IRCCF research on bank business models and previously to the IRCCF director Professor Rym Ayadi research which equally recommended the calibration of the LR according to bank business models.
