BANK 3.4.1 Introduction

The leverage ratio is a simple, transparent, non-risk-based measure to help restrict the build-up of leverage in the banking system. Excessive leverage can expose banking businesses to higher financial risk, with potential damage to the overall financial system, and to the economy if a de-leveraging process takes place.
