RWA dynamics FY11-FY14E

European banks included in this note reduced their RWA much more aggressively than their US peers, and have enjoyed a far greater improvement in FY11-FY14E revenue/RWA, largely due to their faster adoption of Basel 3.

In securitisation, credit and commodities, the key driver of RWA returns for US banks was revenue; Europeans, by contrast, relied somewhat more on RWA. European banks have outperformed in equities, their area of focus in recent times.
