ECB comprehensive assessment: Finnish banks’ capital adequacy remained good also in the stress scenario 

The capital adequacy of all the Finnish banks involved clearly exceeded the capital ratio thresholds defined in the assessment.  In the adverse scenario, the Finnish banks’ Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio remained higher than the average for the assessed banks and the aggregate adjustment to capital ratios was on average level. The result will further enhance consumer confidence in the Finnish banking sector.
Please see the documentation related to the comprehensive assessment and stress test
