Capital adequacy

The Group’s Basel I total capital based on consolidated IFRS financials comprised RUB 731.8 bn as at 30 June 2019 – up 8.2% in 1H2019 compared to RUB 676.4 bn at year-end 2018. In January 2019, the Group obtained financing from the Gazprom Group via the perpetual interest-free subordinated loan of RUB 90,000 mln. Such loan meets the criteria for it to be classified within Tier 1 Capital in order to calculate the capital adequacy ratio. In February 2019, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation approved the inclusion of the perpetual and interest-free loan in the additional capital when calculating capital adequacy in accordance with the national rules.

At the same time, upon receiving an official authorization of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation in the second quarter of 2019, the Group exercised a call option on subordinated Eurobonds of CHF 350 mln.

The Group’s risk weighted assets were down by 3.4% in 1H2019 − mostly due to market risk mitigation. 

Hence, the Group’s capital adequacy indicators as at 30 June 2019 were as follows: the Group’s total capital adequacy ratio − at 13.8% (12.4% at year-end 2018 − up by 1.4 p.p. for the first six months); the Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio − at 12.5% (against 10.5% at year-end 2018, − up 2.0 p.p. in fix six months).
