Common equity

Common equity
Common equity consists of share capital plus reserves and is considered the highest quality component of a bank’s equity. Basel 2, which sets higher capital ratios for banks, requires that half the Tier 1 equity consists of common equity. The other half is of equally high quality compared to the other components of the capital structure, although not of the same calibre as ordinary shares or retained earnings.
