24. 05. 2016 | Press Release of the NBS

The Bank Board of Národná banka Slovenska today (24 May) held its 11th meeting of 2016, chaired by Jozef Makúch, the NBS Governor.

The Bank Board approved NBS's May 2016 Financial Stability Report.

The Bank Board took note of NBS's May 2016 Monthly Bulletin.

The Bank Board approved Decisions on the setting of capital buffer requirements for banks in Slovakia identified as other systemically important institutions (O-SIIs). Accordingly, the O-SII buffer (a buffer to increase the resilience of O-SIIs) and systemic risk buffers (SRBs) applicable to these institutions are set as follows:

O-SII buffer requirement

SRB requirement after phasing in

Československá obchodná banka, a.s.



Poštová banka, a.s.



Slovenská sporiteľňa, a.s.



Tatra banka, a.s.



Všeobecná úverová banka, a.s.



The target sum of the O-SII buffer and SRB requirements for each O-SII remain unchanged from the levels set in the Decisions of 26 May 2015. The SRB requirements are being phased in and will apply in full as from 1 January 2018. The Decisions approved today by the Bank Board will enter into force on 1 January 2017.
