Definitions 
FSI  Financial Soundness Indicators Regulatory Tier 1 capital to assets  This is the ratio of the core capital (Tier 1) to total (balance sheet) assets. Regulatory Tier 1 capital to riskweighted assets  It is calculated using total regulatory Tier 1 capital as the numerator and riskweighted assets as the denominator. The data for this FSI are compiled in accordance with the guidelines of either Basel I, Basel II, or Basel III. Nonperforming loans net of provisions to capital  This FSI is calculated by taking the value of nonperforming loans (NPLs) less the value of specific loan loss provisions as the numerator and capital as the denominator. Capital is measured as total regulatory capital. Nonperforming loans to total gross loans  This FSI is calculated by using the value of NPLs as the numerator and the total value of the loan portfolio (including NPLs, and before the deduction of specific loan loss provisions) as the denominator. Return on assets  This FSI is calculated by dividing annualized net income before extraordinary items and taxes (as recommended in the FSI Guide) by the average value of total assets (financial and nonfinancial) over the same period. Liquid assets to shortterm liabilities  This FSI is calculated by using the core measure of liquid assets as the numerator and shortterm liabilities as the denominator. The ratio can also be calculated by taking the broad measure of liquid assets as the numerator. For jurisdictions that have implemented Basel III, this indicator could be supplemented with the liquidity coverage ratio. Net open position in foreign exchange to capital  The net open position in foreign exchange should be calculated based on the recommendation of the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision (BCBS).
