Global Systemically Important Banks (G-SIBs) disclosures

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (Basel Committee) has established a number of indicators that help it determine whether a bank should be classified as a Global Systemically Important Bank (G-SIB). The indicators reflect the size of banks, their interconnectedness, their market presence as a service provider of infrastructure that supports financial markets, their complexity and their global (cross-jurisdictional) activity. On an annual basis, it is mandatory for the Group to complete a G-SIB data reporting template issued by the Basel Committee in respect of the reporting year. Based on this G-SIB indicator information, CBA has not been classified as a G-SIB.

The Group is required under APRA Prudential Standard APS 330 Public Disclosure (APS 330, Attachment H) to disclose some of the G-SIB indicator information from the data reporting template for the year ended 31 December 2016.
