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 remained at the level of year-end 2018 – up just 0.2% for 9M2019. 

All in all, the Group’s capital adequacy indicators as at 30 September 2019 were as follows: the Group’s total capital adequacy ratio – 13.8% (12.4% at year-end 2018 − up by 1.4 p.p. for 9M2019); the Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio − at 12.5% (against 10.5% at year-end 2018, − up 2.0 p.p. in 9M2019).
