SEB Approved to Apply Internal Models for Determining Capital Requirement for Operational Risk
Finansinspektionen, the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, has together with authorities in eight other European countries granted SEB the approval to apply the Advanced Measurement Approach (AMA) for determining the capital requirement for operational risk. This is the first time a Nordic banking group has received this approval. Finansinspektionen has also concluded its review of SEB’s internal capital adequacy assessment process (ICAAP), which is an important part of the new capital adequacy framework (Basel II). Finansinspektionen writes in its decision that SEB has sufficient capital in relation to the risks the Group is exposed to.
