Our EconData platform makes it easy to do bank-level analysis using regulatory data.
Habib Overseas Bank has been placed under curatorship by the Minister of Finance, on a recommendation from the Prudential Authority. SARB data is currently only available to January 2023 and shows that Habib Overseas Bank’s equity to assets ratio fell meaningfully over the last four months and that its deposit-to-total liabilities ratio fell in January by 6.5 percentage points.
The Reserve Bank has noted that the bank meets the liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) regulatory requirement. Unfortunately, the regulator does not publish historical bank-level regulatory ratios such as the LCR or capital adequacy ratio so it is not easy to monitor regulatory compliance using public domain data.
