The Reserve Bank of New Zealand will require the local subsidiaries of Australia’s four major banks to hold tier one capital that is equivalent to at least 16 per cent of their risk-weighted assets. They will also be required to hold total capital of 18 per cent, of which 13.5 per cent will have to be common equity tier one capital. However, the new rules will be implemented over a seven-year period, rather than the five-year time-frame that was initially proposed.

CORPORATES
RESERVE BANK OF NEW ZEALAND, COMMONWEALTH BANK OF AUSTRALIA – ASX CBA, WESTPAC BANKING CORPORATION – ASX WBC, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND BANKING GROUP LIMITED – ASX ANZ, NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK LIMITED – ASX NAB, UBS HOLDINGS PTY LTD, S&P GLOBAL RATINGS
