Abstract

We evaluate the Comprehensive Assessment by analysing the database made available by the European Central Bank. We show that the capital deficit of a bank identified by the Comprehensive Assessment is positively related to a market-based risk measure of the bank, such as its historical volatility, and that the post-adjustment leverage ratio, but not the pre-adjustment leverage ratio or the risk-weighted capital ratio, is related to it. These results show that the Comprehensive Assessment captures banks’ riskiness and that the leverage ratio is a better indicator than the risk-weighted capital ratio.
