Turin - Milan, December 16th 2013 – Intesa Sanpaolo notes the announcements made today by the European Banking Authority and Banca d’Italia regarding the information of the EU-wide Transparency Exercise 2013 and fulfilment of the EBA Board of Supervisors decision.

Background 2013 EU-wide Transparency Exercise

In May 2013 the EBA adjusted the timeline of the next EU-wide stress test so to conduct the exercise in 2014 once the asset quality reviews are completed. However, to ensure transparency and comparability over the years, the EBA’s Board of Supervisors decided to provide, in the second half of 2013, appropriate disclosure on the actual exposures of the EU banking sector. In its October meeting the BoS agreed on the form and scope of the transparency exercise to be conducted in November/December 2013 to assure a sufficient and appropriate level of information for market participants.

The sample of the exercise includes 64 banks and for each of them the following set of information was collected for disclosure:
I. Composition of capital1

II. Composition of RWA by risk type2

III. Exposures to sovereigns (central, regional and local governments) in EEA3 (direct and indirect exposures by maturity buckets and country)

IV. Credit risk exposures (defaulted and non-defaulted) and RWAs by country with breakdowns for Institutions, Commercial RE, Retail and Corporate4; displayed by regulatory approach (A-IRB, F-IRB, STA)

V. LTV per portfolio, value adjustments and provisions

VI. Market risk and securitisation exposures

In addition, banks submitted information on risk parameters (default rates, loss rates, LGD, PDs) by country EAD with breakdowns for Institutions, Commercial RE, Retail and Corporate, (exposures displayed by regulatory approach). This data is not publically disclosed on bank-by-bank basis.
