Countercyclical capital buffer rate

In reaction to the Basel III regulatory framework, CRD IV introduced an important macroprudential instrument into EU regulatory practice: a countercyclical capital buffer. This instrument is intended to increase the resilience of the financial system to the risks associated with the behaviour of the banking sector over the financial cycle, in particular strong fluctuations in lending, which magnify swings in the economic cycle.
