A Capital Adquecy Ratio is a measure of a bank's capital. It is expressed as a percentage of a bank's risk weighted credit exposures.

Also known as ""Capital to Risk Weighted Assets Ratio (CRAR).

This ratio is used to protect depositors and promote the stability and efficiency of financial systems around the world.
