Top 5 Banks With Highest Capital Adequacy Ratio

By Saikat Mitra | 12/28/2012 9:00 PM Friday

Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) is defined as the ratio of a bank's capital to its risk. National regulators track a bank's CAR to ensure that it can absorb a reasonable amount of loss and complies with the statutory capital requirements. The CAR determines a bank's capacity to meet its time liabilities and other risks such as credit risk, operational risk, etc. In essence, a bank's capital is its ‘cushion’ for potential losses, and protects the bank's depositors and other lenders. Banking regulators in most countries define and monitor CAR levels to protect depositors, thereby maintaining confidence in the banking system.

Here, we present the top 5 banks in India that have the highest CAR levels.
