Introduction and basis for preparation
Scope of Basel III Pillar 3 disclosures
The
 
Basel
 
Committee
 
on
 
Banking
 
Supervision
 
(the
 
BCBS)
 
Basel III
 
capital
 
adequacy
 
framework
 
consists
 
of
 
three
complementary pillars. Pillar 1 provides a framework for measuring
 
minimum capital requirements for the credit, market,
operational and non-counterparty-related risks faced by banks. Pillar 2 addresses
 
the principles of the supervisory review
process, emphasizing the need for a qualitative approach to supervising banks. Pillar
 
3 requires banks to publish a range
of disclosures, mainly covering risk, capital, leverage,
 
liquidity and remuneration.
This report
 
provides Pillar 3
 
disclosures for
 
the UBS
 
Group, including
 
the acquired
 
Credit Suisse
 
Group, and
 
prudential
key
 
figures
 
and
 
regulatory
 
information
 
for
 
UBS AG
 
consolidated
 
and
 
standalone,
 
UBS Switzerland
 
AG
 
standalone,
UBS Europe SE consolidated,
 
and UBS Americas Holding LLC consolidated, as
 
well as Credit Suisse AG consolidated
 
and

(Schweiz) AG consolidated and
 
standalone, Credit Suisse
 
International standalone, and
 
Credit

Holdings
 
(USA),
 
Inc.
 
consolidated
 
in
 
the
 
respective
 
sections
 
under
 
“Significant
 
regulated
 
subsidiaries
 
and
 
sub-
groups.”
 
This Pillar 3 Report
 
has been prepared
 
in accordance
 
with Swiss Financial
 
Market Supervisory Authority
 
(FINMA) Pillar 3
disclosure requirements
 
(FINMA Circular
 
2016/1 “Disclosure
 
– banks”)
 
as revised
 
on 8 December
 
2021, the
 
underlying
BCBS guidance
 
“Revised Pillar
 
3 disclosure
 
requirements”
 
issued in
 
January 2015,
 
the “Frequently
 
asked questions
 
on
the revised Pillar 3
 
disclosure requirements”
 
issued in August 2016, the
 
“Pillar 3 disclosure requirements
 
– consolidated
and
 
enhanced
 
framework”
 
issued
 
in
 
March
 
2017
 
and
 
the
 
subsequent
 
“Technical
 
Amendment
 
 
Pillar 3
 
disclosure
requirements – regulatory treatment
 
of accounting provisions” issued in August 2018.
As UBS
 
is considered
 
a
 
systemically
 
relevant
 
bank
 
(an
 
SRB) under
 
Swiss banking
 
law, UBS Group
 
AG,
 
UBS AG,
 
Credit
Suisse AG
 
and Credit
 
Suisse (Schweiz)
 
AG are
 
required to
 
comply with
 
regulations based
 
on the
 
Basel III framework
 
as
applicable to Swiss SRBs on a consolidated basis.
 
Local
 
regulators
 
may
 
also
 
require
 
the
 
publication
 
of
 
Pillar 3
 
information
 
at
 
a
 
subsidiary
 
or
 
sub-group
 
level.

Significant regulatory developments, disclosure requireme
 
nts and other changes
Swiss Federal Council releases its report on systemically important
 
banks
In
 
April
 
2024,
 
the
 
Swiss
 
Federal
 
Council
 
released
 
its
 
report
 
on
 
banking
 
stability
 
that
 
evaluates
 
the
 
regulation
 
of
systemically important banks.
 
The report includes
 
a comprehensive review
 
of the acquisition of
 
the Credit Suisse
 
Group
and concludes
 
that the
 
existing
 
Swiss too
 
-big-to-fail
 
(TBTF)
 
regime
 
must
 
be further
 
developed
 
and strengthened.
 
The
Swiss
 
Federal
 
Council
 
proposes
 
to
 
introduce
 
a
 
broad
 
package
 
of
 
measures,
 
focused
 
on
 
three
 
areas:
 
strengthening
prevention, strengthening liquidity and
 
expanding the crisis toolkit.
 
Preventive
 
measures
 
include
 
proposals
 
to
 
strengthen
 
the
 
capital
 
base,
 
to
 
improve
 
resolvability
 
and
 
tighten
 
capital
requirements
 
for
 
global
 
systemically
 
important
 
banks,
 
including
 
the
 
introduction
 
of
 
forward-looking
 
elements
 
for
institution-specific Pillar 2 capital surcharges and increased
 
capital adequacy requirements for foreign participations
 
.
 
The
Swiss
 
Federal
 
Council
 
also
 
recommended
 
preventive
 
measures
 
related
 
to
 
corporate
 
governance,
 
such
 
as
 
a
 
senior
management regime and stricter
 
regulations regarding bonuses. To
 
strengthen liquidity, the Swiss
 
Federal Council intends
to
 
significantly
 
expand
 
the
 
potential
 
for
 
the
 
Swiss
 
National
 
Bank
 
(the
 
SNB)
 
to
 
provide
 
more
 
liquidity
 
in
 
a
 
crisis.
Furthermore, the Swiss
 
Federal Council reiterated its
 
support for the
 
introduction of a
 
public liquidity backstop.
 
To expand
the
 
crisis
 
toolkit,
 
the
 
Swiss
 
Federal
 
Council
 
proposed
 
measures
 
that
 
aim
 
to
 
minimize
 
legal
 
risks
 
associated
 
with
 
the
execution of resolution measures.
 
In
 
the
 
first
 
half
 
of
 
2025,
 
the
 
Swiss
 
Federal
 
Council
 
is
 
expected
 
to
 
present
 
two
 
packages
 
to
 
implement
 
the
 
proposed
measures: one
 
with changes
 
at the
 
ordinance level,
 
which can
 
be adopted
 
by the
 
Swiss Federal
 
Council, and
 
another,
which will be submitted to the
 
Parliament, with proposed legislative
 
amendments. The Swiss Federal
 
Council has stated
that when drafting
 
these two packages
 
it will
 
take into
 
account the findings
 
of the Parliamentary
 
Investigation Committee
concerning the role of the Swiss authorities in the rescue of the Credit Suisse Group. Due to the
 
broad range of possible
outcomes,
 
the
 
impact
 
of
 
the
 
proposals
 
on
 
UBS
 
can
 
be
 
fully
 
assessed
 
only
 
when
 
the
 
implementation
 
details
 
become
clearer.

FINMA publishes ordinances with implementing provisions
 
for the revised Swiss Capital Adequacy Ordinance
In March 2024, FINMA published five new ordinances to implement the final Basel III standards in Switzerland, replacing
various existing FINMA circulars,
 
including ordinances on
 
operational risks and market
 
risks. The ordinances contain
 
the
implementing provisions for the
 
Swiss Federal Council’s
 
revised Capital Adequacy Ordinance for
 
banks and they
 
will enter
into force on 1 January 2025.
The Swiss National Bank will raise the minimum reserve
 
requirement for banks
In April 2024, the SNB
 
announced that it
 
will raise the minimum
 
reserve requirement
 
for domestic banks from
 
2.5% to
4%, and it
 
will therefore amend the
 
National Bank Ordinance
 
as of
 
1 July 2024. The
 
SNB further announced
 
that liabilities
arising from cancelable customer deposits (excluding tied
 
pension provisions) will be included in full in the calculation of
the minimum
 
reserve requirement,
 
as is
 
the case
 
with the
 
other relevant
 
liabilities. This
 
revokes the
 
previous exception
under which only
 
20% of these liabilities
 
counted toward the calculation. Based
 
on preliminary internal assessments, UBS
expects a negative impact of USD 70m to USD 80m per
 
annum on net interest income to result from
 
these changes.
Significant BCBS consultation papers
Guidelines for counterparty credit risk management
In April 2024, the
 
BCBS issued a public consultation regarding guidelines for
 
counterparty credit risk (CCR) management.
The
 
key
 
areas
 
covered
 
are
 
due
 
diligence
 
of
 
counterparties
 
(both
 
at
 
initial
 
onboarding
 
and
 
on
 
an
 
ongoing
 
basis),
 
the
development of a comprehensive credit risk mitigation
 
strategy to effectively manage counterparty exposures,
 
measures
to control and limit
 
CCR using a
 
wide variety of complementary metrics,
 
and a strong CCR
 
governance framework. Banks
and supervisors
 
are
 
encouraged to
 
take a
 
risk-based and
 
proportionate
 
approach
 
in the
 
application
 
of the
 
guidelines,
taking into account the
 
degree of CCR
 
generated by banks’
 
lines of business, their
 
trading and financing activities,
 
and
the complexity of such CCR exposures.
Other developments
Capital returns
On 24
 
April
 
2024, the
 
shareholders
 
approved
 
a
 
dividend
 
of
 
USD 0.70
 
per
 
share
 
at
 
the
 
Annual General
 
Meeting.
 
The
dividend was paid on 3 May 2024 to shareholders
 
of record on 2 May 2024.
Our 2022 share
 
repurchase program
 
was concluded
 
on 28 March
 
2024. A total
 
of 298,537,950
 
UBS Group AG
 
shares
were acquired under that
 
program, at an aggregate purchase price
 
of CHF 5,010m, of which CHF 1,202m were
 
acquired
in 2023 prior to the announcement
 
of the acquisition of the Credit
 
Suisse Group. On 12 April 2023,
 
the Swiss Takeover
Board approved the use of
 
up to 178,031,942 shares repurchased
 
under the 2022 program, and
 
originally intended for
cancellation, for the acquisition of the Credit Suisse Group.
On 3 April
 
2024, we
 
launched a
 
new 2024 share
 
repurchase program
 
of up to
 
USD 2bn over
 
two years.
 
We expect
 
to
execute up to USD 1bn of
 
repurchases in 2024, commencing
 
after the completion of
 
the merger of UBS AG
 
and Credit
Suisse AG.

Key metrics
Key metrics of the first quarter of 2024
The KM1 and KM2
 
tables below are
 
based on Basel
 
Committee on Banking
 
Supervision (BCBS) Basel
 
III rules. The
 
KM2
table
 
includes
 
a
 
reference
 
to
 
the
 
total
 
loss-absorbing
 
capacity
 
(TLAC)
 
term
 
sheet,
 
published
 
by
 
the
 
Financial
 
Stability
Board, which provides this term sheet at
fsb.org/2015/11/total-loss-absorbing-capacity-tlac-principles-and-term-sheet
.
Our capital
 
ratios
 
increased,
 
mainly
 
reflecting
 
a
 
decrease
 
in
 
risk-weighted
 
assets
 
(RWA).
 
Our
 
leverage
 
ratio
 
increased,
predominantly reflecting a decrease in the leverage ratio
 
denominator (the LRD).
Our common equity
 
tier 1 (CET1)
 
capital decreased
 
by USD 0.3bn
 
to USD 78.1bn,
 
mainly reflecting an
 
operating profit
before tax of USD 2.4bn,
 
more than offset by negative
 
effects from foreign currency translation
 
of USD 1.3bn, dividend
accruals of USD 0.6bn,
 
current tax expenses of
 
USD 0.5bn and amortization
 
of transitional CET1
 
purchase price allocation
(PPA) adjustments (interest rate and own credit) of USD
 
0.4bn (net of tax).
 
As
 
part
 
of
 
the
 
acquisition
 
of
 
the
 
Credit
 
Suisse
 
Group
 
in
 
2023,
 
the
 
assets
 
acquired
 
and
 
liabilities
 
assumed,
 
including
contingent
 
liabilities,
 
were
 
recognized
 
at
 
fair
 
value
 
as
 
of
 
the
 
acquisition
 
date
 
in
 
accordance
 
with
 
IFRS 3,
Business
Combinations
. The
 
PPA fair
 
value adjustments
 
required under
 
IFRS 3 were
 
recognized as
 
part of
 
negative goodwill
 
and
included effects on financial
 
instruments measured at amortized
 
cost, such as fair
 
value impacts from interest
 
rates and
own
 
credit,
 
that
 
are
 
expected
 
to
 
accrete
 
back
 
to
 
par
 
through
 
the
 
income
 
statement
 
as
 
the
 
instruments
 
are
 
held
 
to
maturity. Similar
 
own-credit-related effects have
 
also been
 
recognized as
 
part of
 
the PPA
 
adjustments on
 
financial liabilities
measured at
 
fair value.
 
As agreed
 
with the
 
Swiss
 
Financial
 
Market
 
Supervisory
 
Authority (FINMA),
 
a transitional
 
CET1
capital treatment
 
has been applied
 
for certain
 
of these fair
 
value adjustments, given
 
the substantially temporary
 
nature
of
 
the
 
IFRS-3-accounting-driven
 
effects.
 
As
 
such,
 
equity
 
reductions
 
under
 
IFRS
 
Accounting
 
Standards
 
of
 
USD 5.9bn
(before
 
tax)
 
and
 
USD 5.0bn
 
(net
 
of
 
tax)
 
as
 
of
 
the
 
acquisition
 
date
 
have
 
been
 
neutralized
 
for
 
CET1
 
capital
 
calculation
purposes, of which USD 1.0bn (net
 
of tax) relates to own-credit-related fair
 
value adjustments. The transitional treatment
is subject
 
to linear
 
amortization and
 
will be
 
reduced
 
to nil by
 
30 June 2027.
 
The amortization
 
of transitional
 
CET1 PPA
adjustments (interest rate and own credit) since
 
the acquisition date totaled USD 1.0bn (net of tax) as
 
of 31 March 2024,
an increase of USD 0.4bn (net of tax) in the first quarter
 
of 2024.
Our tier 1
 
capital increased
 
by USD 1.1bn
 
to USD 93.5bn,
 
reflecting an
 
increase in
 
additional tier 1
 
(AT1) capital,
 
partly
offset by the aforementioned decrease
 
in CET1 capital.
 
The AT1 capital increase was mainly
 
driven by the issuance of
 
two
AT1 capital instruments equivalent to a total of USD
 
1.5bn.
The TLAC available as
 
of 31 March 2024 included CET1
 
capital, AT1 capital and
 
non-regulatory capital elements of TLAC.
Under the Swiss
 
systemically relevant
 
bank framework, including
 
transitional arrangements,
 
TLAC excludes 45%
 
of the
gross unrealized gains on
 
debt instruments measured
 
at fair value through
 
other comprehensive income for
 
accounting
purposes, which
 
for regulatory
 
capital purposes
 
are measured
 
at the
 
lower of
 
cost or
 
market
 
value. This
 
amount
 
was
negligible as of 31 March 2024 but is included as available
 
TLAC in the KM2 table in this section.
Our available TLAC decreased by
 
USD 2.0bn to USD 197.5bn, mainly due
 
to a decrease in
 
TLAC-eligible senior unsecured
debt,
 
partly
 
offset
 
by
 
the
 
aforementioned
 
increase
 
in
 
tier 1
 
capital.
 
The
 
USD 3.1bn
 
decrease
 
in
 
TLAC-eligible
 
senior
unsecured debt mainly reflected
 
the call of USD 2.1bn equivalent
 
of TLAC-eligible senior unsecured
 
debt instruments, a
USD 1.9bn equivalent TLAC-eligible senior unsecured debt instrument
 
that ceased to be eligible as gone concern capital
when we
 
issued a
 
notice of
 
redemption of
 
the instrument
 
in the
 
first quarter
 
of 2024,
 
a USD 2.4bn
 
senior unsecured
debt instrument that
 
was no longer TLAC
 
eligible due to its
 
residual tenor falling below
 
one year, and negative
 
impacts
from interest rate
 
risk hedge, foreign
 
currency translation
 
and other effects.
 
These decreases
 
were partly offset
 
by new
issuances totaling USD 5.4bn equivalent of TLAC-eligible
 
senior unsecured debt instruments.
During
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of
 
2024,
 
RWA
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 20.1bn
 
to
 
USD 526.4bn,
 
mainly
 
driven
 
by
 
decreases
 
of
USD 17.4bn in
 
credit risk
 
RWA, USD 3.2bn in
 
RWA related to
 
securitization exposures in
 
the banking
 
book and
 
USD 2.9bn
in counterparty credit risk RWA, partly offset by an increase
 
of USD 3.0bn in market risk RWA.
The LRD decreased by USD 95.8bn to USD 1,599.6bn,
 
driven by currency effects of USD 56.3bn and asset size and other
movements of USD 39.4bn.

The quarterly
 
average liquidity
 
coverage ratio
 
(the LCR)
 
of the
 
UBS Group
 
increased 4.6 percentage
 
points to
 
220.2%,
remaining above the prudential requirement communicated by FINMA. The movement in the quarterly average
 
LCR was
primarily driven by
 
an increase in
 
high-quality liquid assets
 
of USD 7.0bn to
 
USD 422.6bn, mostly driven
 
by higher cash
available
 
from
 
customer
 
deposits
 
and
 
loan
 
repayments.
 
The
 
average
 
net
 
cash
 
outflows
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 0.7bn
 
to
USD 192.1bn,
 
reflecting
 
higher net
 
inflows from
 
securities
 
financing transactions
 
and lower
 
outflows from
 
derivatives
and loan commitments, which were partly offset by higher
 
net outflows from customer deposits and loans.
 
As
 
of
 
31 March
 
2024,
 
the
 
net
 
stable
 
funding
 
ratio
 
of
 
the
 
UBS
 
Group
 
increased
 
1.8 percentage
 
points
 
to
 
126.4%,
remaining above
 
the prudential
 
requirement communicated by
 
FINMA. Available stable
 
funding decreased
 
by USD 39.4bn
to USD 887.0bn,
 
mostly reflecting
 
decreases in
 
customer
 
deposits, debt
 
issued and
 
regulatory capital.
 
Required
 
stable
funding
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 41.6bn
 
to
 
USD 701.6bn,
 
predominantly
 
reflecting
 
lower
 
lending
 
assets,
 
mainly
 
driven
 
by
negative currency effects.

Overview of risk-weighted assets
Overview of RWA and capital requirements
The
 
OV1
 
table
 
below
 
provides
 
an
 
overview
 
of
 
our
 
risk-weighted
 
assets
 
(RWA)
 
and
 
the
 
related
 
minimum
 
capital
requirements by
 
risk type.
 
The table
 
presented is
 
based on
 
the respective
 
Swiss Financial
 
Market Supervisory
 
Authority
(FINMA) template and empty rows indicate current non-applicability
 
to UBS.
During
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of
 
2024,
 
RWA
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 20.1bn
 
to USD 526.4bn,
 
mainly
 
driven
 
by
 
decreases
 
of
USD 17.4bn in
 
credit risk
 
RWA,
 
USD 3.2bn in
 
RWA related to
 
securitization exposures in
 
the banking
 
book and
 
USD 2.9bn
in counterparty credit risk (CCR) RWA,
 
partly offset by an increase of USD 3.0bn in market
 
risk RWA.
Credit
 
risk
 
RWA
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 17.4bn,
 
mainly
 
driven
 
by
 
decreases
 
of
 
USD 9.7bn
 
related
 
to
 
currency
 
effects,
USD 7.0bn related to asset size and other movements,
 
as well as USD 0.7bn related to model updates and methodology
changes. Asset size and other
 
movements decreased by USD 7.0bn,
 
mainly driven by our actions
 
to actively unwind the
Non-core and
 
Legacy portfolio,
 
in addition
 
to the
 
natural roll-off.
 
Furthermore, the
 
decrease was
 
driven by lower
 
RWA
on
 
loans
 
and
 
loan
 
commitments
 
in
 
Global
 
Wealth
 
Management
 
and
 
Personal
 
&
 
Corporate
 
Banking,
 
partly
 
offset
 
by
higher
 
RWA
 
from
 
the
 
high-quality
 
liquid
 
asset
 
portfolio
 
and
 
nostro
 
accounts
 
in
 
Group
 
Items.
 
Model
 
updates
 
and
methodology changes resulted
 
in a decrease of
 
USD 0.7bn, mainly reflecting an
 
RWA decrease of USD 1.5bn
 
related to
the recalibration of certain multipliers as a result of improvements to models, partly offset by RWA increases from model
updates mainly related to income-producing real estate.
RWA related
 
to securitization
 
exposures in
 
the banking
 
book decreased
 
by USD 3.2bn,
 
mainly reflecting
 
our actions
 
to
actively unwind the portfolio, including the sale of USD
 
8bn of senior secured financing facilities to Apollo.
CCR RWA decreased by USD 2.9bn, mainly driven
 
by decreases of USD 2.4bn related to asset
 
size and other movements,
USD 0.6bn
 
related
 
to
 
currency
 
effects,
 
partly
 
offset
 
by
 
an
 
increase
 
of
 
USD 0.2bn
 
related
 
to
 
model
 
updates
 
and
methodology changes.
 
Asset size and
 
other movements
 
decreased by USD 2.4bn,
 
mainly due
 
to lower
 
RWA on
 
derivatives
in the Investment Bank.
Market risk RWA
 
increased by USD 3.0bn,
 
driven by
 
an increase of
 
USD 4.8bn related to
 
model updates and
 
methodology
changes,
 
primarily
 
reflecting
 
the
 
FINMA-approved
 
integration
 
of
 
time
 
decay
 
into
 
regulatory
 
value-at-risk
 
(VaR)
 
and
stressed
 
VaR
 
for
 
derivatives
 
with
 
optionality,
 
which
 
was
 
partly
 
offset
 
by
 
an
 
improvement
 
in
 
the
 
profit
 
and
 
loss
representation of
 
derivatives with
 
multiple underlyings.
 
This impact
 
was partly
 
offset by
 
a decrease
 
of USD 1.8bn
 
from
asset
 
size
 
and
 
other
 
movements
 
in
 
the
 
Investment
 
Bank
 
and
 
in
 
Non-core
 
and
 
Legacy
.
 
The
 
FINMA-agreed
 
temporary
measure that was
 
introduced in the
 
fourth quarter of
 
2022, and scheduled
 
to be lifted
 
with the implementation
 
of the
aforementioned changes, has not
 
yet been removed. The
 
temporary time decay RWA
 
buffer that was introduced
 
in the
third quarter of 2021 has dropped to an immaterial level.
The flow tables for credit risk,
 
CCR and market risk RWA below provide

temporary differences, and mortgage servicing rights.
RWA flow statements of credit risk exposures under

The
 
CR8
 
table
 
below
 
provides
 
a
 
breakdown
 
of
 
the
 
credit
 
risk
 
RWA
 
movements
 
in
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of
 
2024
 
across
movement categories defined by the Basel Committee on Banking
 
Supervision (the BCBS).
 
Credit risk
 
RWA under
 
the internal
 
ratings-based (IRB)
 
approach decreased
 
by USD 11.6bn
 
to USD 198.4bn
 
during the
first quarter of 2024. This
 
balance includes credit
 
risk under the advanced
 
IRB approach, as well
 
as credit risk under
 
the
supervisory slotting approach.
Currency effects,
 
driven by the
 
strengthening of the
 
US dollar
 
against other major
 
currencies, resulted in
 
an RWA decrease
of USD 8.4bn.
Movements in asset size
 
decreased RWA by
 
USD 4.7bn, primarily driven by
 
our actions to actively
 
unwind the Non-core
and Legacy portfolio, in addition to
 
the natural roll-off and, to a
 
lesser extent,
 
by lower RWA from
 
loans in Global Wealth
Management.
Movements in asset quality,
 
including changes in risk
 
density across the overall
 
portfolio,
 
increased RWA by USD
 
0.5bn,
mainly due to changes in the risk
 
profile in Group Treasury and the
 
Investment Bank. This was partly offset
 
by decreases
in Global Wealth Management,
 
as well as in Personal & Corporate Banking,
 
where the risk profile improved slightly.
Model updates
 
resulted in
 
a reduction
 
of USD 0.7bn
 
,
 
mainly reflecting
 
an RWA
 
decrease
 
of USD 1.5bn
 
related to
 
the
recalibration
 
of certain
 
multipliers
 
as a
 
result of
 
improvements
 
to models,
 
partly
 
offset
 
by RWA
 
increases from
 
model
updates related to income-producing real estate.
Other
 
items
 
resulted
 
in
 
an
 
RWA
 
increase
 
of
 
USD 1.8bn,
 
primarily
 
reflecting
 
a
 
USD 3.0bn
 
overlay
 
for
 
uncertainties
associated with the alignment of models and RWA calculations
 
in Credit Suisse platforms with those of UBS.

RWA flow statements of counterparty credit risk exposures
 
under the internal model method and VaR
The CCR7 table below presents a flow statement
 
explaining changes in CCR RWA determined
 
under the internal model
method (the IMM) for derivatives and the VaR
 
approach for securities financing transactions
 
(SFTs
 
).
CCR RWA on derivatives under the IMM decreased
 
by USD 1.3bn to USD 16.0bn during the
 
first quarter of 2024. Asset
size movements
 
contributed to
 
an RWA
 
decrease of
 
USD 3.2bn, primarily due
 
to a
 
client-driven decrease in
 
the Investment
Bank
 
and
 
de-risking
 
of
 
Non-core
 
and
 
Legacy
 
assets.
 
Foreign
 
exchange
 
movements
 
resulted
 
in
 
an
 
RWA
 
decrease
 
of
USD 0.4bn. These decreases were partly offset by an increase of USD 2.2bn from asset quality movements, primarily due
to changes in the average risk density in the Investment Bank
 
and Non-core and Legacy.
CCR RWA on SFTs
 
under the VaR
 
approach decreased by
 
USD 1.3bn to USD 9.7bn
 
during the first
 
quarter of 2024.
 
An
RWA decrease of
 
USD 1.5bn from asset
 
quality movements
 
was primarily
 
driven by changes
 
in the average
 
risk density
in the
 
Investment Bank and
 
Group Items. Foreign
 
exchange movements resulted
 
in an
 
RWA decrease of
 
USD 0.1bn. These
decreases were partly offset by an increase of USD 0.2bn
 
due to asset size movements.

RWA flow statements of market risk exposures under
 
an internal models approach
The three main components that contribute to market risk RWA are regulatory VaR, stressed value-at-risk (SVaR)
 
and the
incremental risk charge (the IRC). The VaR
 
and SVaR components
 
include the RWA charge for risks not
 
in VaR (RniV).
 
The MR2 table below provides
 
a breakdown of the movement
 
in market risk RWA in
 
the first quarter of 2024
 
under an
internal models approach across those components, pursuant
 
to the movement categories defined by the BCBS.
 
Market risk
 
RWA increased
 
by USD 3.0bn
 
to USD 23.9bn
 
in the
 
first quarter
 
of 2024,
 
driven by
 
an increase
 
that stems
from the FINMA-approved integration of time decay into regulatory
 
VaR and stressed VaR for derivatives with optionality,
which was partly offset by an improvement in the profit and loss representation of derivatives
 
with multiple underlyings.
This impact
 
was partly
 
offset by
 
a decrease
 
in asset
 
size and
 
other movements.
 
The FINMA-agreed
 
temporary measure
that
 
was
 
introduced
 
in
 
the
 
fourth
 
quarter
 
of
 
2022,
 
and
 
scheduled
 
to
 
be
 
lifted
 
with
 
the
 
implementation
 
of
 
the
aforementioned changes, has not
 
yet been removed. The
 
temporary time decay RWA
 
buffer that was introduced
 
in the
third quarter of 2021 has dropped to an immaterial level.
The FINMA VaR multiplier derived
 
from backtesting exceptions for market
 
risk RWA was unchanged compared
 
with the
prior quarter, at 3.0, for both the UBS Group excluding
 
Credit Suisse and Credit Suisse.

2 Our
 
minimum CET1
 
leverage ratio
 
requirement of
 
3.50% consists
 
of a
 
1.5% base
requirement, a 1.5% base buffer capital requirement, a 0.25% LRD add-on requirement and a 0.25% market share
 
add-on requirement based on our Swiss credit business.
 
3 Includes outstanding low-trigger loss-
absorbing additional tier 1 capital
 
instruments, which are
 
available under the Swiss
 
systemically relevant bank
 
framework to meet the
 
going concern requirements until their
 
first call date. As
 
of their first call date,
these instruments are eligible to meet the gone concern requirements.
 
4 A maximum of 25% of the gone concern requirements can be met with instruments that have a remaining maturity of between one and two
years. Once at least 75% of the minimum
 
gone concern requirement has been met with instruments
 
that have a remaining maturity of greater than
 
two years, all instruments that have a remaining maturity
 
of between
one and two years remain eligible to be included in the total gone concern capital.
 
5 From 1 January 2023, the resolvability discount on the gone concern capital requirements for systemically important banks (SIBs)
has been replaced
 
with reduced base
 
gone concern capital
 
requirements equivalent to
 
75% of the
 
total going concern requirements
 
(excluding countercyclical buffer
 
requirements).
 
6 As of July
 
2024, the Swiss
Financial Market Supervisory Authority
 
(FINMA) will have the
 
authority to impose a
 
surcharge of up to 25%
 
of the total going concern
 
capital requirements should obstacles
 
to an SIB’s
 
resolvability be identified in
future resolvability assessments.
 
7 Includes applicable add-ons of 1.08% for RWA and 0.38% for LRD.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
31 March 2024 Pillar 3 Report |
UBS Group | Leverage ratio
 
11
Leverage ratio
Basel III leverage ratio
The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (the BCBS)
 
leverage ratio, as summarized in the “KM1: Key
 
metrics“ table
in
 
section
 
2
 
of
 
this
 
report,
 
is
 
calculated
 
by
 
dividing
 
the
 
period-end
 
tier 1
 
capital
 
by
 
the
 
period-end
 
leverage
 
ratio
denominator (the LRD).
The LRD consists of on-balance sheet assets and off-balance sheet items based on IFRS Accounting Standards. Derivative
exposures are
 
adjusted for
 
a number of
 
items, including
 
replacement values
 
and eligible
 
cash variation
 
margin netting,
the current
 
exposure method add-on
 
for potential
 
future exposure
 
and net
 
notional amounts
 
for written
 
credit derivatives.
The LRD also includes an additional charge for counterparty
 
credit risk related to securities financing transactions (SFTs).
The table below shows
 
the difference between total IFRS
 
Accounting Standards assets per the
 
IFRS Accounting Standards
consolidation scope and
 
the BCBS total
 
on-balance sheet exposures.
 
Those exposures are
 
the starting point
 
for calculating
the BCBS LRD, as shown in the
 
LR2 table in this section. The
 
difference is due to the application of
 
the regulatory scope
of consolidation
 
for the purpose
 
of the BCBS
 
calculation. In addition,
 
carrying amounts for
 
derivative financial instruments
and SFTs are deducted from
 
IFRS Accounting Standards total
 
assets. They are measured
 
differently under BCBS leverage
ratio rules and are therefore added back in separate
 
exposure line items in the LR2 table.
Difference between the Swiss systemically relevant bank
 
and BCBS leverage ratio
The LRD is
 
the same under
 
Swiss systemically relevant
 
bank (SRB) and
 
BCBS rules. However,
 
there is a
 
difference in
 
the
capital numerator between
 
the two
 
frameworks. Under BCBS
 
rules only
 
common equity tier 1
 
and additional tier 1
 
capital
are
 
included in
 
the numerator.
 
Under Swiss
 
SRB rules
 
UBS is
 
required
 
to meet
 
going and
 
gone concern
 
leverage ratio
requirements. Therefore,
 
depending on the requirement, the numerator includes tier
 
1 capital instruments, tier 2 capital
instruments and / or total loss-absorbing capacity-eligible
 
senior unsecured debt.

During
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of
 
2024, the
 
LRD
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 95.8bn
 
to
 
USD 1,599.6bn,
 
driven
 
by currency
 
effects
 
of
USD 56.3bn and asset size and other movements of USD
 
39.4bn.
On-balance sheet exposures
 
(excluding derivatives and
 
securities financing transactions) decreased
 
by USD 93.2bn, driven
by currency
 
effects of
 
USD 47.9bn and
 
asset size
 
and other
 
movements of
 
USD 45.3bn. The
 
asset size
 
movement was
mainly due
 
to a
 
decrease
 
in
 
cash and
 
central
 
bank balances
 
driven by
 
repayment
 
of funding
 
from the
 
Swiss
 
National
Bank, lower lending balances and
 
trading portfolio assets mainly in
 
Non-core and Legacy, driven by
 
our actions to actively
unwind
 
the
 
portfolio,
 
in
 
addition
 
to
 
the
 
natural
 
roll-off,
 
including
 
the
 
conclusion
 
of
 
an
 
investment
 
management
agreement with
 
Apollo. These
 
decreases were
 
partly offset
 
by higher
 
trading portfolio
 
assets, mainly
 
in the Investment
Bank, driven by higher inventory held to hedge client positions.
Derivative exposures
 
increased by
 
USD 0.9bn, driven
 
by asset size
 
and other
 
movements of
 
USD 3.6bn,
 
partly offset by
currency effects of USD 2.8bn. The asset size movement
 
was mainly driven by higher exposures in the Investment
 
Bank.
Securities financing transactions increased by USD 1.0bn, driven by asset size
 
and other movements of USD 4.4bn,
 
partly
offset
 
by
 
currency
 
effects
 
of
 
USD 3.4bn.
 
The
 
asset
 
size
 
movement
 
was
 
mainly
 
due
 
to
 
client-driven
 
increases
 
in
 
the
Investment Bank, partly offset by roll-offs of excess cash
 
re-investments in Group Treasury.
Off-balance sheet items decreased by USD 4.5bn,
 
driven by asset size and other movements of
 
USD 2.2bn and currency
effects of USD 2.2bn.The asset size movement was driven
 
by a decrease in commitments.

Liquidity and funding
Liquidity coverage ratio
We monitor the liquidity coverage
 
ratio (the LCR) in all significant currencies
 
in order to manage any currency
 
mismatch
between high-quality liquid assets (HQLA) and the net expected
 
cash outflows in times of stress.

High-quality liquid assets
HQLA must be
 
easily and immediately convertible
 
into cash at little
 
or no loss
 
of value, especially during
 
a period of stress.
HQLA are
 
assets that
 
are
 
of low
 
risk and
 
are
 
unencumbered.
 
Other characteristics
 
of HQLA
 
are
 
ease and
 
certainty
 
of
valuation, low
 
correlation with
 
risky assets,
 
listing of
 
the assets
 
on a developed
 
and recognized
 
exchange, existence
 
of
an active and sizable
 
market for the
 
assets, and low volatility.
 
Our HQLA predominantly
 
consist of assets that
 
qualify as
Level 1 in the LCR framework, including cash, central bank
 
reserves and government bonds.

LCR development during the first quarter of 2024
 
The quarterly average LCR
 
of the UBS
 
Group increased 4.6 percentage points to
 
220.2%, remaining above the
 
prudential
requirement communicated by the Swiss Financial
 
Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
The movement in the quarterly average LCR was primarily driven by an increase in HQLA of USD 7.0bn to USD 422.6bn,
mostly
 
driven
 
by
 
higher
 
cash
 
available
 
from
 
customer
 
deposits
 
and
 
loan
 
repayments.
 
The
 
average
 
net
 
cash
 
outflows
decreased by USD 0.7bn to
 
USD 192.1bn, reflecting higher net
 
inflows from securities financing
 
transactions and lower
outflows from derivatives
 
and loan
 
commitments, which were
 
partly offset
 
by higher
 
net outflows
 
from customer deposits
and loans.

Key metrics of the first quarter of 2024
The
 
table
 
below
 
is
 
based
 
on
 
Basel
 
Committee
 
on
 
Banking
 
Supervision
 
(BCBS)
 
Basel III
 
rules
 
and
 
IFRS
 
Accounting
Standards.
During
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of 2024,
 
tier 1
 
capital
 
increased
 
by
 
USD 1.4bn
 
to
 
USD 58.1bn.
 
Common
 
equity
 
tier 1
 
(CET1)
capital decreased by USD 0.3bn to USD 43.9bn, primarily as the
 
operating profit before tax of USD 1.4bn was more
 
than
offset by
 
negative effects
 
from foreign
 
currency translation of
 
USD 0.8bn, current
 
tax expenses
 
of USD 0.4bn
 
and dividend
accruals of USD 0.4bn. Additional
 
tier 1 (AT1) capital issued by
 
the Group and on
 
lent to UBS AG increased
 
by USD 1.7bn
to USD 14.2bn, mainly reflecting the issuance of two AT1
 
capital instruments equivalent to a total of USD 1.5bn.
 
Risk-weighted assets
 
(RWA) decreased
 
by USD 5.2bn
 
to USD 328.7bn
 
during the first
 
quarter of 2024,
 
primarily driven
by a decrease
 
in credit and
 
counterparty credit risk
 
RWA,
 
partly offset by
 
increases
 
in operational risk
 
RWA and
 
market
risk RWA.
 
During the first quarter of 2024, the leverage ratio
 
denominator (the LRD) decreased by USD 25.8bn to
 
USD 1,078.6bn,
driven by currency effects
 
of USD 33.2bn, partly offset
 
by asset size and
 
other movements of USD
 
7.4bn. The asset size
movement was mainly driven by higher derivative exposures, trading portfolio assets and securities financing transaction
exposures, partly offset by lower lending balances.
 
Correspondingly, the CET1 capital ratio of
 
UBS AG consolidated increased to 13.3% from
 
13.2%, reflecting the decrease
in RWA, partly offset by the
 
decrease in CET1 capital.
 
The Basel III leverage ratio increased to 5.4%
 
from 5.1%, reflecting
the increase in tier 1 capital and lower leverage ratio exposure.
In the
 
first quarter
 
of 2024,
 
the quarterly
 
average liquidity
 
coverage ratio
 
(the LCR)
 
of UBS AG
 
consolidated
 
increased
1.7 percentage
 
points
 
to 191.4%.
 
The
 
movement
 
in
 
the
 
quarterly
 
average
 
LCR was
 
driven
 
by a
 
decrease
 
in
 
net
 
cash
outflows, partly
 
offset by
 
a decrease
 
in high-quality
 
liquid assets
 
(HQLA). The
 
average net
 
cash outflows
 
decreased by
USD 3.0bn to USD 131.3bn, reflecting higher net inflows from securities financing transactions and lower outflows from
derivatives and loan
 
commitments, partly offset
 
by higher outflows
 
from customer deposits.
 
The average HQLA
 
decreased
by USD 3.5bn to USD 251.0bn, mainly driven by lower
 
cash available due to higher investment in
 
trading portfolio assets
and a decrease in debt issued,
 
as well as shifts into non-HQLA
 
securities financing transactions. The decrease
 
was partly
offset by
 
an increase
 
in cash
 
available resulting
 
from customer
 
deposits and
 
loan repayments,
 
as well as
 
a reduction
 
in
lending to Credit Suisse.
 
As of 31 March 2024, the net
 
stable funding ratio of UBS AG consolidated
 
increased 2.0 percentage points to 121.6%.
Required
 
stable
 
funding
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 19.1bn
 
to
 
USD 484.7bn,
 
mainly
 
driven
 
by
 
lower
 
lending
 
assets,
 
primarily
reflecting negative
 
currency effects
 
,
 
and a
 
reduction in
 
lending to
 
Credit Suisse.
 
Available stable
 
funding decreased
 
by
USD 13.3bn to USD 589.3bn, mainly driven by lower customer
 
deposits, predominantly due to negative currency effects,
and lower debt issued.

3 Existing outstanding
 
low-trigger
additional tier 1 capital instruments qualify as going concern capital at the UBS AG
 
consolidated level, as agreed with FINMA, until their first call date.
 
As of their first call date, these instruments are eligible to meet
the gone concern
 
requirements.
 
4 A maximum of
 
25% of the
 
gone concern requirements
 
can be met
 
with instruments that
 
have a remaining
 
maturity of between
 
one and two
 
years. Once at
 
least 75% of
 
the
minimum gone concern requirement
 
has been met with
 
instruments that have a remaining
 
maturity of greater than
 
two years, all
 
instruments that have a
 
remaining maturity of between one
 
and two years remain
eligible to be included in the total gone
 
concern capital.
 
5 From 1 January 2023, the
 
resolvability discount on the gone concern
 
capital requirements for systemically important banks (SIBs)
 
has been replaced with
reduced base gone
 
concern capital requirements
 
equivalent to 75%
 
of the total
 
going concern requirements
 
(excluding countercyclical buffer
 
requirements).
 
6 As of
 
July 2024, FINMA
 
will have the
 
authority to
impose a surcharge of up to 25% of the
 
total going concern capital requirements should
 
obstacles to an SIB’s resolvability
 
be identified in future resolvability assessments.
 
7 Includes applicable add-ons of 1.08%
for RWA and 0.38% for LRD.

Key metrics of the first quarter of 2024
The
 
table
 
below
 
is
 
based
 
on
 
Basel
 
Committee
 
on
 
Banking
 
Supervision
 
(BCBS)
 
Basel III
 
rules
 
and
 
IFRS
 
Accounting
Standards.
During
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of 2024,
 
tier 1
 
capital
 
increased
 
by
 
USD 1.1bn
 
to
 
USD 66.2bn.
 
Common
 
equity
 
tier 1
 
(CET1)
capital decreased by USD 0.6bn to USD 52.0bn,
 
primarily as operating profit was more than
 
offset by dividend accruals.
Additional tier 1 (AT1) capital issued
 
by the Group and
 
on lent to UBS AG increased
 
by USD 1.7bn to USD 14.2bn, mainly
reflecting the issuance of two AT1 capital instruments equivalent
 
to a total of USD 1.5bn.
 
Phase-in risk-weighted assets (RWA)
 
increased by USD 2.7bn to USD
 
356.8bn during the first quarter
 
of 2024, primarily
driven by increases in participation RWA, operational
 
risk RWA, and market risk RWA, partly
 
offset by a decrease in credit
and counterparty credit risk RWA.
The
 
Leverage
 
ratio
 
denominator
 
(the
 
LRD)
 
decreased
 
by
 
USD 2.6bn
 
to
 
USD 641.3bn,
 
driven
 
by
 
currency
 
effects
 
of
USD 12.2bn,
 
partly offset by asset size and other movements of USD 9.6bn. The asset size movement
 
was mainly driven
by higher
 
derivative exposures,
 
securities financing
 
transaction exposures,
 
trading portfolio
 
assets and
 
cash and
 
central
bank balances,
 
partly offset by lower lending balances.
Correspondingly, the CET1 capital ratio of UBS AG standalone
 
decreased to 14.6% from 14.8%, reflecting the decrease
in
 
CET1
 
capital
 
and
 
the
 
increase
 
in
 
RWA.
 
The
 
firm’s
 
Basel III
 
leverage
 
ratio
 
increased
 
to
 
10.3%
 
from
 
10.1%,
 
mainly
reflecting the increase in tier 1 capital.
In
 
the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of
 
2024,
 
the
 
quarterly
 
average
 
liquidity
 
coverage
 
ratio
 
(the
 
LCR)
 
of
 
UBS AG
 
standalone
 
increased
8.5 percentage
 
points to
 
268.7%,
 
remaining
 
above
 
the
 
prudential
 
requirement
 
communicated
 
by
 
the
 
Swiss
 
Financial
Market Supervisory Authority
 
(FINMA). The movement
 
in the quarterly
 
average LCR was
 
mainly driven by
 
a decrease
 
in
net cash outflows of
 
USD 4.3bn to USD 46.1bn, reflecting
 
higher net inflows from
 
securities financing transactions and
higher
 
inflows
 
from
 
intercompany
 
loans,
 
partly
 
offset
 
by
 
higher
 
outflows
 
from
 
higher
 
intercompany
 
and
 
customer
deposits. The effect of the decrease in average net
 
cash outflows was partly offset by a decrease
 
in average high-quality
liquid
 
assets
 
(HQLA)
 
of
 
USD 6.2bn
 
to
 
USD 123.7bn,
 
mainly
 
due
 
to
 
an
 
increase
 
in
 
trading
 
portfolio
 
assets,
 
non-HQLA
securities financing transactions and lower debt issued at fair value, partly offset by a reduction in lending to subsidiaries
and Credit Suisse, as well as a decrease in net lending to
 
customers.
As
 
of
 
31 March
 
2024,
 
the
 
net
 
stable
 
funding
 
ratio
 
increased
 
3.5
 
percentage
 
points
 
to
 
95.2%,
 
remaining
 
above
 
the
prudential requirement
 
communicated by
 
FINMA. Required
 
stable funding
 
decreased by
 
USD 16.6bn to
 
USD 288.3bn,
mainly driven by lower lending assets, primarily
 
reflecting negative currency effects,
 
and a reduction in lending to Credit
Suisse. Available stable funding decreased by USD 5.2bn
 
to USD 274.6bn, mainly driven by lower debt issued.

3 Swiss SRB going and gone concern requirements and information
 
for UBS AG standalone are provided below in this section.
 
4 Excludes non-BCBS capital buffer
requirements for risk-weighted positions that are directly or indirectly backed by residential properties in Switzerland.
 
5 Represents the CET1 ratio that is available to meet buffer requirements. Calculated as the CET1
ratio minus the BCBS CET1 capital requirement and,
 
where applicable, minus the BCBS tier 2
 
capital requirement met with CET1 capital.
 
6 Calculated after the application of haircuts and inflow
 
and outflow rates,
as well as, where
 
applicable, caps on Level
 
2 assets and cash
 
inflows. Calculated based on
 
an average of
 
61 data points in the
 
first quarter of 2024
 
and 63 data points
 
in the fourth quarter of
 
2023. For the
 
prior-
quarter data points, refer to the

“Pillar 3 disclosures” at ubs.com/investors,
 
for more information.
 
7 In accordance with Art. 17h para.
 
3 and 4 of the Liquidity Ordinance,
UBS AG standalone is required to maintain a minimum NSFR of at least 80% without taking into account excess funding of UBS Switzerland AG
 
and 100% after taking into account such excess funding.

Swiss systemically relevant bank going and gone concern
 
requirements and information
 
The tables below
 
provide details of
 
the Swiss systemically
 
relevant bank RWA-
 
and LRD-based going
 
and gone concern
requirements and
 
information as
 
required by
 
FINMA. Details
 
regarding eligible
 
gone concern
 
instruments are
 
provided
below.
UBS AG standalone
 
is subject
 
to a
 
gone concern capital
 
requirement based
 
on the sum
 
of: (i) the
 
nominal value
 
of the
gone concern
 
instruments issued
 
by UBS
 
entities and
 
held by
 
the parent
 
firm; (ii) 75%
 
of the
 
capital requirements
 
resulting
from third-party exposure
 
on a standalone
 
basis; and (iii) a
 
buffer requirement equal
 
to 30% of
 
the Group’s gone
 
concern
capital requirement
 
on UBS
 
AG’s consolidated
 
exposure.
 
As of
 
1 January
 
2024, the
 
buffer requirement
 
has been
 
fully
phased in. The gone
 
concern capital coverage ratio reflects how
 
much gone concern capital is
 
available to meet the gone
concern requirement. Outstanding
 
high- and low-trigger
 
loss-absorbing tier 2 capital
 
instruments, non-Basel III-compliant
tier 2 capital instruments and total loss-absorbing capacity-eligible unsecured debt instruments are eligible to meet gone
concern requirements until one year before maturity.
More information about
 
the going and
 
gone concern requirements
 
is provided
 
in the “UBS
 
AG standalone”
 
section of
the 31 December 2023 Pillar 3 Report, available under “Pillar

Key metrics of the first quarter of 2024
The
 
table
 
below
 
is
 
based
 
on
 
Basel
 
Committee
 
on
 
Banking
 
Supervision
 
(BCBS)
 
Basel III
 
rules
 
and
 
IFRS
 
Accounting
Standards.
During the first quarter
 
of 2024, common equity
 
tier 1 capital increased by
 
CHF 0.1bn to CHF 12.6bn,
 
mainly driven by
operating profit, largely offset by dividend accruals.
 
Total risk-weighted assets (RWA) increased by CHF 4.2bn
 
to CHF 111.3bn, mainly driven by higher RWA from credit and
counterparty credit risk.
The leverage ratio denominator (the LRD) increased
 
by CHF 7.1bn to CHF 337.7bn, mainly due to an
 
increase in lending
balances.
The quarterly average
 
liquidity coverage
 
ratio of UBS Switzerland
 
AG remained stable
 
at 142.5%, remaining
 
above the
prudential requirement communicated by
 
the Swiss Financial
 
Market Supervisory Authority
 
(FINMA). Average high-quality
liquid assets (HQLA)
 
increased by CHF 1.2bn
 
to CHF 77.5bn, due
 
to proceeds from
 
covered bonds issued.
 
The effect
 
of
higher HQLA was offset by a CHF 0.8bn increase in average net
 
cash outflows, mainly driven by higher average outflows
from intercompany deposits.
As
 
of
 
31 March
 
2024,
 
the
 
net
 
stable
 
funding
 
ratio
 
of
 
UBS Switzerland AG
 
remained
 
largely
 
unchanged
 
at
 
134.6%,
remaining
 
above
 
the
 
prudential
 
requirement
 
communicated
 
by
 
FINMA.
 
Required
 
stable
 
funding
 
remained
 
largely
unchanged at CHF 166.8bn. Available stable funding increased by CHF 1.9bn to CHF 224.6bn, driven by higher
 
deposits
and debt issued, partly offset by lower regulatory capital.

UBS Europe SE consolidated
The table below provides information about the regulatory capital components,
 
capital ratios, leverage ratio and liquidity
of
 
UBS Europe SE
 
consolidated
 
based
 
on
 
Basel
 
Committee
 
on
 
Banking
 
Supervision
 
Pillar 1
 
requirements
 
and
 
in
accordance with EU regulatory rules and IFRS Accounting Standards.
 
During the
 
first quarter of
 
2024, capital
 
remained stable, and
 
risk-weighted assets increased
 
by EUR 0.3bn
 
to EUR 12.7bn,
mainly
 
driven
 
by
 
an
 
increase
 
in
 
securities
 
financing
 
transactions.
 
Leverage
 
ratio
 
exposure
 
increased
 
by
 
EUR 3.7bn
 
to
EUR 48.8bn, mainly reflecting the increase in securities financing
 
transactions in line with the balance sheet movement.
The average
 
liquidity coverage
 
ratio remained
 
stable and
 
well above
 
the regulatory
 
requirements of
 
100% at
 
147.9%,
with a
 
EUR 0.7bn
 
decrease
 
in high-quality
 
liquid assets
 
and a
 
EUR 0.4bn
 
decrease
 
in total
 
net cash
 
outflows. The
 
net
stable funding ratio decreased
 
8.9 percentage points to
 
122.6%, with a EUR
 
0.5bn increase in
 
required stable funding,
which was mainly due to clients increasing their Asian market
 
exposure.

31 March 2024 Pillar 3 Report |
Significant regulated subsidiaries and
 
sub-groups | UBS Americas Holding LLC consolidated
 
31
UBS Americas Holding LLC consolidated
The table
 
below provides
 
information about
 
the regulatory
 
capital components,
 
capital, liquidity,
 
funding and
 
leverage
ratios of
 
UBS Americas Holding LLC
 
consolidated, based on
 
Basel Committee on
 
Banking Supervision
 
Pillar 1 requirements
and in accordance with US Basel III rules.
Effective 1 October 2023,
 
and through 30 September 2024,
 
UBS Americas Holding
 
LLC is subject
 
to a stress
 
capital buffer
(an SCB)
 
of 9.1%,
 
in addition
 
to the
 
minimum capital
 
requirements. The
 
SCB was
 
determined by
 
the Federal
 
Reserve
Board following
 
the completion
 
of the
 
2023 Comprehensive
 
Capital Analysis
 
and Review
 
(the CCAR)
 
based on
 
Dodd–
Frank Act Stress
 
Test (DFAST) results
 
and planned future dividends.
 
The SCB, which
 
replaces the static capital
 
conservation
buffer of 2.5%, is subject to change on an annual basis or
 
as otherwise determined by the Federal Reserve Board.
During the first quarter
 
of 2024, common equity
 
tier 1 and tier 1 capital
 
both increased by USD
 
0.1bn, primarily due
 
to
operating profit.
 
Risk-weighted
 
assets (RWA)
 
increased
 
by USD 2.8bn
 
to USD 75.9bn,
 
due to
 
a USD 2.0bn
 
increase
 
in
credit
 
risk
 
and
 
a
 
USD 0.8bn
 
increase
 
in
 
market
 
risk.
 
The
 
increase
 
in
 
credit
 
risk
 
RWA
 
was
 
mostly
 
due
 
to
 
a
 
USD 1.2bn
increase in derivatives and a USD 0.3bn increase in securities
 
financing transactions, while market risk was driven mostly
by an increase in value-at-risk / stressed value-at-risk. Leverage ratio exposure, calculated on an average basis, decreased
by USD 0.3bn to USD 183.7bn, primarily due to lower lending
 
activity levels.
The average
 
liquidity coverage
 
ratio increased
 
by 2.2 percentage
 
points to
 
149.9%, driven
 
by a
 
USD 0.5bn increase
 
in
high-quality liquid assets. Net cash
 
outflows remained flat, with
 
outflows and inflows both
 
decreasing by USD 0.5bn. The
average net stable
 
funding ratio increased
 
by 1.6 percentage
 
points to 133.7%.
 
This was due to
 
a USD 1.3bn decrease
in required stable funding,
 
which was primarily driven by a decrease in lending, partly
 
offset by a USD 0.5bn decrease in
available stable funding.

sub-groups | Credit Suisse AG consolidated
 
32
Credit Suisse AG consolidated
Key metrics of the first quarter of 2024
The table below is based on Basel Committee on Banking Supervision
 
(BCBS) Basel III rules.
During the first quarter
 
of 2024, the common equity
 
tier 1 (CET1) capital of
 
Credit Suisse AG consolidated
 
increased by
CHF 0.2bn to CHF 38.4bn, mainly driven by positive effects from foreign currency translation of CHF 1.6bn,
 
partly offset
by an operating loss of
 
CHF 1.4bn. Tier 1 capital increased
 
by CHF 0.2bn to CHF 38.8bn,
 
reflecting the aforementioned
increase in CET1 capital.
Risk-weighted assets (RWA)
 
decreased by CHF 8.4bn
 
to CHF 173.3bn
 
during the first
 
quarter of 2024,
 
primarily due
 
to
decreases in credit risk RWA.
The leverage
 
ratio denominator
 
(the LRD)
 
decreased
 
by CHF 39.4bn
 
to CHF 485.6
 
bn, driven
 
by lower
 
business usage,
primarily due to de-risking
 
activities, and lower high-quality liquid
 
assets (HQLA),
 
partly offset by positive currency
 
effects.
Correspondingly,
 
the
 
CET1
 
capital
 
ratio
 
of
 
Credit
 
Suisse AG
 
consolidated
 
increased
 
to
 
22.1%
 
from
 
21.0%,
 
mainly
reflecting the aforementioned decrease in
 
RWA. The Basel III leverage ratio
 
increased to 8.0% from 7.4%, primarily due
to the aforementioned lower LRD.
In the
 
first
 
quarter
 
of 2024,
 
the
 
quarterly
 
average
 
liquidity coverage
 
ratio
 
(the
 
LCR)
 
of
 
Credit
 
Suisse AG
 
consolidated
decreased 1.8 percentage
 
points to
 
263.3%, remaining
 
above the
 
prudential requirement
 
communicated by
 
the Swiss
Financial Market Supervisory Authority
 
(FINMA). The decrease in the
 
quarterly average LCR was driven by
 
an increase of
CHF 7.0bn in average
 
HQLA, to
 
CHF 149.6bn, mainly
 
driven by
 
higher cash
 
available from
 
customer deposits
 
and loan
repayments.
 
The
 
effect
 
of
 
the
 
higher
 
average
 
HQLA
 
was
 
partly
 
offset
 
by
 
a
 
CHF 3.0bn
 
increase
 
in
 
average
 
net
 
cash
outflows, to
 
CHF 56.8bn,
 
mainly due
 
to higher
 
outflows from
 
deposits and
 
lower inflows
 
from loans,
 
partly offset
 
by
lower outflows from loan commitments.
As of 31 March 2024, the net stable funding ratio (the NSFR) of Credit Suisse AG consolidated increased 2.1 percentage
points to
 
136.9%, remaining above
 
the prudential
 
requirement communicated by
 
FINMA. The increase
 
in the
 
NSFR mainly
reflected a decrease of
 
CHF 13.7bn, to CHF 199.4bn, in
 
required stable funding, primarily
 
related to a
 
decrease in lending
assets. This was
 
partly offset by a
 
decrease of CHF 14.1bn
 
to CHF 272.9bn in
 
available stable funding,
 
primarily related
to a decrease in intercompany funding.
