The ECB stress tests confirm the financial strength of Groupe BPCE

The asset quality review and stress test exercise carried out by the ECB and EBA(1) confirm the financial strength of Groupe BPCE. The impact of the asset quality review is very limited (-29bp(2) ) and leaves the pre-stress test Common Equity Tier 1 ratio at 10.0% at the end of 2013. ECB projections for end-2016 put this ratio at 7.0% under the adverse stress scenario(3) , leaving a comfortable margin of 150bp(2) above the 5.5% threshold required by the ECB and EBA(1).
