NEDBANK GROUP AND NEDBANK LIMITED PILLAR 3 BASEL III DISCLOSURE AT 30 SEPTEMBER 2020
The quarterly Pillar 3 disclosure covers the operations of Nedbank Group Limited (group) as well as Nedbank Limited
(bank) and complies with the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s (BCBS) revised Pillar 3 disclosure
requirements and regulation 43 of the regulations relating to banks issued in terms of the Banks Act (Act No 94 of 1990).
BASEL III CAPITAL ADEQUACY AND LEVERAGE
Both the group and bank remain solidly capitalised at levels well above the minimum regulatory requirements, with CET1
ratios including unappropriated profits of 10,7% (September 2019: 10,9%) and 10,0% (September 2019: 10,6%),
respectively. The CET1 ratios are reflective of organic capital generation after accounting for the impact of growth in
RWA during the period.
The group’s tier 1 capital position was positively impacted by the issuance of new-style additional tier 1 instruments of
R2,4bn during the period, offset by the further grandfathering of preference shares in January 2020, in line with the
Basel III transitional arrangements.
The group’s total capital position was further impacted by the redemption of new-style tier 2 capital instruments of R2,2bn
and the issuance of new-style tier 2 capital instruments of R4,05bn during the period, as well as the surplus arising
between provisions and expected losses recognised as tier 2 capital.
The group’s Basel III leverage ratio remained at 6,4% (September 2019: 6,4%).
LIQUIDITY COVERAGE RATIO
The group's quarterly average LCR exceeded the revised minimum regulatory requirement of 80% applicable in Q3
2020 and the group maintains appropriate operational buffers designed to absorb seasonal and cyclical volatility in the
LCR. On a year-on-year basis the September 2020 LCR at 125,6% is slightly higher (September 2019: 121,2%).
Nedbank's portfolio of LCR-compliant HQLA (comprising mainly of government bonds and treasury bills) averaged
R209,8bn for the quarter, and increased from the June 2020 quarterly average of R187,0bn.
The higher LCR observed in the current quarter (125,6%), compared with the previous quarter (114,5%), is due to
Nedbank’s response to proactively increase the HQLA liquidity buffers to absorb the increase in short-dated deposits
from financial and non-financial corporates experienced during the previous quarter. Nedbank will continue to manage
the HQLA portfolio within risk appetite targets, taking into account balance sheet growth while maintaining appropriately
sized surplus liquid-asset buffers based on market conditions.
