The MNB announced on Monday that the lending and balance sheet indicators of Hungarian banks are healthy, and that the bankruptcy of America’s Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank has no direct impact on the Hungarian banking system.
Hungarian banks’ capital adequacy is 1.5 times higher now than it was in 2008, during the financial crisis, the MNB added.
