  • The common equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio for the UK banking sector increased by 0.3 percentage points (pp) on the quarter to 15.1%, 1.1 pp higher than in Q4 2015.
  • The quarterly increase was driven by small movements in both the level of CET1 capital (increase) and in the level of total risk-weighted assets (decrease) (see Table A and Chart 2).
  • The reduction in risk-weighted assets was driven by small decreases in most risk categories (Table B and Chart 3).
