Countercyclical capital buffer

In its annual information paper on the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB), APRA today confirmed that based on its assessment of the systemic risk environment for authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs), it considers that a zero per cent CCyB remains appropriate at this point in time, and will likely remain so until the end of 2021.
