BBVA shall maintain at consolidated level a total capital ratio of 13.25% and a CET1 capital ratio of 9.09% as of January 1, 2024. These capital ratios include a Pillar 2 requirement at a consolidated level of 1.68%, of which 0.18%1 is determined on the basis of the ECB’s prudential provisioning expectations. Of this Pillar 2 requirement of 1.68% at the consolidated level, a minimum of 1.02% shall be met with CET12.
