MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. The Central Bank of Russia determined ten systemically important subjected to additional equity and liquidity requirements in accordance with Basel III international standard, the regulator said on Wednesday.

These ten banks account for more than 60% of assets in the Russian banking sector as of July 1, 2015, the Central Bank said.

The capital conservation buffer is planned to be implemented in respect of all credit institutions on a consolidated basis for credit institutions being parents for banking groups and on an individual basis for credit institutions having no banking groups. The buffer will be equal to 0.625% of risk-weighted assets with 0.625% increment annually from January 1, 2016 until reaching 2.5% from January 1, 2019.
