Interior Ciudad BBVA, La Vela

Bank of Spain today notified BBVA about the new MREL requirement that the bank will need to comply with starting January 1, 2021. According to BBVA estimates, the current structure of own funds and eligible liabilities in its balance sheet is in line with this MREL requirement, as well as the new subordination requirement.

BBVA earned €1.23 billion in the third quarter, +6.1 percent yoy, excluding capital gains from the sale of BBVA Chile and this franchise’s earnings in 2018. The net attributable profit for the first nine months of 2019 reached €3.67 billion, +1.2 percent yoy (+0.5 percent in constant euros), on a comparable basis. The result was driven mainly by growth in recurring revenues and containment in operating expenses.
