Tier one capital, a gauge of financial health

Tier one capital is the core measure of a bank’s financial strength. It is composed of core capital, which consists primarily of common share and disclosed reserves, but may also include non-redeemable and non-cumulative preferred share.

Tier one capital represents a bank’s most reliable and liquid assets that can be tapped, if necessary. The use of tier one capital in evaluating a company’s financial health is helpful because it is a measure of liquid assets and provides a degree of confidence both to regulators and investors.

It’s a ratio regulators use to gauge strength with a 6% minimum floor required under Basel 2 agreement. By law, banks are required to maintain a certain level of tier one capital on their balance sheet.  A tier one capital ratio of more than 15% implies that a company is conservative and prudent with its spending and capital reserves.

Technically, tier one capital ratio is made by dividing a firm’s tier one capital by its risk weighted assets. A firm’s risk-weighted assets include all assets that the firm holds that are systematically weighted for credit risk, meaning that each asset is assigned a weighted according to their risk level.

In some cases, a tier one ratio can be a deceiving measure of a company’s financial strength. This is because, in addition to the equity capital and disclosed reserves, there can be other hidden assets not reported on a balance sheet. Watch out for financial shenanigans!

  26. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
