Improving market conditions in Europe, coupled with ongoing efforts by the largest European banks to streamline their business models, have helped these banks consolidate their core common equity tier 1 (CET1) ratio figure over recent quarters. While UBS still has the most comfortable CET1 capital ratio margin of 390 basis points (3.9% points) over its regulatory target for 2019, HSBC now has the highest CET1 ratio figure of 14.3% among major European banks. HSBC’s gains are primarily due to the beneficial regulatory treatment of its minority stake in Hong Kong’s Bank of Communications. Notably, German banking giant Deutsche Bank managed to improve its core capital ratio buffer from just 30 basis points (0.3% points) at the end of Q3 2016 to 110 basis points (1.1% points) now.

This one could be the easiest of advances, both because credit losses are down big and because its credit-card brethren — Capital One Financial, Discover, Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA) — have all had significant rallies.
