BIS Ratio

Our solid risk management and robust investment selection process have contributed significantly to FMO’s strong capital base, which is reflected by a Bank for International Settlements (BIS) ratio of 29.0% (2011: 29.4%). FMO has a prudent internal approach to assessing the risk weighting of our investments in emerging markets.

The leverage ratio, which will be mandatory under Basel III, amounts to 25.7% - far above the minimum required 3%.

The calculated internal capital ratio, using a FMO specific internal rate based method for calculating credit risk, taking into account the relevant other risks, amounts to 14,2% at the end of 2012 (2011: 14,0%).
