Section 2 – Regulatory capital and prudential ratios

2.1 Scope of application of the law

Consolidated own funds, risk-weighted assets and solvency ratios at 31 December 2014 were determined based on the new harmonised framework set out in Directive 2013/36/EU (CRD IV) and Regulation (EU) 575/2013 (CRR) dated 26 June 2013, as well as Bank of Italy's Circulars no. 285 and 286 (issued during 2013) and the update to Circular no. 154.

Article 19 of the CRR requires to include the unconsolidated Holding of the banking group in prudential consolidation.

Pursuant to the provisions concerning own funds, the new regulatory framework will be gradually phased in over a transitional period extending until approximately 2017.
