European Debt Crisis 

Rabobank Group is among the world's 30 largest financial institutions based on Tier 1 Capital with a continuing and growing presence in Australia and New Zealand.


In 2011, the European Banking Authority announced the results of stress tests for banks and, as expected, Rabobank performed very strongly. These tests showed that under a worst-case stress scenario, Rabobank's core Tier 1 ratio would be more than twice the level required to pass the stress test.


The Rabobank Group has very limited net exposure to sovereign debt in Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain.  As at June 2012, the Rabobank Group’s exposure in these countries was EUR 252 million (0.033% of total assets). 


Rabobank New Zealand is part of Rabobank* International, the Rabobank Group's international arm. Since its establishment, all profits made by Rabobank New Zealand have remained within New Zealand and have been reinvested in the local food and agribusiness markets.
