Equity capital, capital requirement and RWA
Commerzbank is a leading international commercial bank with branches and offices in nearly 50 countries. The Bank serves more than 11 million private and small-business customers nationwide and over 70,000 corporate clients, multinationals, financial service providers, and institutional clients worldwide. Its Polish subsidiary mBank S.A. has around 5.7 million private and corporate custom- ers, predominantly in Poland, but also in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
A detailed description of Commerzbank Group is given in the Annual Report 2019 and in the Interim Report as at 30 September 2020.
The massive global spread of the coronavirus pandemic led many countries to implement drastic containment measures, such as curfews, business closures and production stops, in March and April. These measures enabled Europe to initially contain the pandemic over the course of the second quarter. The situation in many other places remained critical. Since the beginning of August, Europe has also seen the number of infections rise sharply once again. The measures that have been taken are less stringent so far than those implemented in the spring, however, so it cannot be assumed at present that the economies of industrial- ised countries will collapse to the same extent as in the second quarter. Nevertheless, the second wave of the pandemic will dampen the upward trend appreciably.
Objective of the Disclosure Report
In this report Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft as the ultimate parent company of the regulated banking group is complying with
the disclosure requirements of Articles 431 - 455 of regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 - the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) - and the guidelines on the disclosure requirements under Part Eight of Regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 - EBA/GL/2016/11 - as at 30 September 2020. The tables defined according to the EBA guidelines and integrated into the report are indicated by the table names provided with the prefix EU.
This Disclosure Report is based on the group of companies consolidated for regulatory purposes. The companies consolidated for regulatory purposes only include those carrying out banking and other financial business. The consolidated group consists of a domestic parent company and its affiliated companies. The aim of regulatory consolidation is to prevent multiple use of capital that in fact exists only once by subsidiary companies in the financial sector. The companies consolidated under IFRS, by contrast, comprise all the companies controlled by the ultimate parent company.
Commerzbank is one of the largest financial institutions in Ger- many and with its consolidated balance sheet total it is regularly well above the 30 billion euro limit relevant for the quarterly disclosure obligation. Hence, independent of the criteria in Article 433 CRR, Commerzbank has implemented the reporting requirements during the period from Q2 2015 on and discloses the quarterly and semi-annually required information as appropriate.1
See EBA/GL/2014/14, title V (18) and EBA/GL/2016/11 No. 46.
