Section 2 — Own funds and prudential ratios

2.1 Scope of application of the law

Consolidated own funds, risk-weighted assets and solvency ratios at 31 December 2015 were determined based on the regulatory principles set out in Directive 2013/36/EU (CRD IV) and Regulation (EU) 575/2013 (CRR) dated 26 June 2013, which were transposed in the Bank of Italy's Circulars no. 285 and 286 of 17 December 2013.

Article 19 of the CRR requires to include the unconsolidated Holding of the banking group in prudential consolidation.

The measures concerning own funds provide for the gradual phase-in of a new regulatory framework, with a transitional period lasting until 2017 during which some elements that will be accounted for or deducted in full once the provisions become effective will have only a limited impact.
