Financial Sector » Assets - Bank capital to assets ratio


Maldives is being the top country by bank capital to assets ratio in the world. As of 2016, bank capital to assets ratio in Maldives was 20.96 %. The top 5 countries also includes Serbia, Tonga, Samoa, and Colombia.

Bank capital to assets is the ratio of bank capital and reserves to total assets. Capital and reserves include funds contributed by owners, retained earnings, general and special reserves, provisions, and valuation adjustments. Capital includes tier 1 capital (paid-up shares and common stock), which is a common feature in all countries' banking systems, and total regulatory capital, which includes several specified types of subordinated debt instruments that need not be repaid if the funds are required to maintain minimum capital levels (these comprise tier 2 and tier 3 capital). Total assets include all non-financial and financial assets.
