Small banks strive to raise capital for stricter rules


08:26, December 03, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 2 (Xinhua) -- China's small banks are intensifying their efforts to attract funds in the hope of preventing the current cash crunch from developing into a failure to meet upcoming new capital rules that require higher money reserves.

According to Shanghai-based financial data provider Wind Information, by the end of November, financial bonds launched or planned to be launched by small Chinese-funded banks had accumulated to 38.07 billion yuan (6.05 billion U.S. dollars) since the beginning of 2012, nearly 50 percent higher than the figure for 2011.

In the past week, Huarong Xiangjiang Bank announced a sale of subordinated debts worth up to 1.5 billion yuan in a bid to raise its core capital adequacy ratio. There followed announcements by Zhejiang Tailong Commercial Bank and Bank of Dongguan of similar plans worth up to 3.5 billion yuan and one billion yuan, respectively.

The moves come after a new banking capital regulation that is set to take effect on Jan. 1, 2013, in accordance with Basel III rules formulated in 2010 by G20 countries.
