FITCH Ratings Press Release: BCP’s investment grade rating (BBB-) reaffirmed on June 10, 2021
Financial strength of the Bank reaffirmed by a strong Tier 1 ratio
On June 30, 2020, BCP’s Tier 1 capital ratio amounted to 16.7%. This ratio, based on the Basel III Committee guidelines, is determined by dividing the eligible common equity tier 1 capital by the risk-weighted assets. Well above the 10.5% threshold required by the Swiss regulator FINMA, this figure is a core measure of BCP’s strong liquidity and capital base.
