The Bulgarian National Bank has published the report on results of the asset quality review (AQR) and stress tests (ST) carried out on twenty-two Bulgarian banks

Provided by independent consultatns and summarized by international professional services company Deloitte, the report says the banking system "remains well capitalized", with capital adequacy of all banks remaining above the required regulatory minimum.

"Some banks shall be required to maintain the existing capital buffers while others shall aim to restore the coverage of their capital buffers, taking into account the AQR adjustments," the BNB has said in a statement.

"Whereas the ST results are based on hypothetical scenarios and as such they do not imply direct capital adjustments, these results will feed into the supervisory review and evaluation process and the banks’ capital planning."

The full report is available here, while individual bank data is available here.
