The Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) intends to set a countercyclical capital buffer of 0.75 percent of the risk-weighted assets on domestic risk positions and to introduce a sectoral systemic risk buffer of 2.0 percent of the risk-weighted assets on loans secured by residential real estate. The quotas are currently at zero percent. This decision takes into account analyzes by the Financial Stability Committee (AFS) and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB). The AFS sees a need for macroprudential action and welcomes the package of measures presented by BaFin.
