Carnegie’s profitability and financial stability are directly dependent upon the ability to manage risks in the business. Aimed at maintaining good financial stability even in the face of unexpected losses, Carnegie has designed an internal capital target. The target is set by the Board based on regulatory requirements and the internal assessment of capital needs. In addition to the capital target, Carnegie has a recovery plan that describes the possible measures that can be taken in the event of a strained financial situation.
The group’s financial position remains strong with a common equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 19.6 percent (18.1) and capital adequacy of 22.1 percent (20.6).
