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 2015. This is the first reporting period for which the Group is required to disclose the indicator information.
