There was a general increase in the Bank’s portfolio of both assets and liabilities for the year ending December 31, 2010 when compared to the previous comparative period. This was mainly attributed to increases in the Bank’s loans and advances, investment securities and customer deposits.
Assets for the year ending December 31, 2010 increased by $240,359 (29.22%) when compared to the previous year and this was primarily due to increases in Loans and Advance and Investment Securities which were $127,732 (29.41%) and $101,654 (39.97%) respectively.

The Central Bank of Trinidad & Tobago requires each financial institution to:-
• Maintain a ratio of total capital to risk adjusted assets of not less than the minimum standard of 8%.
• Core capital must not be less than fifty percent (50%) of total capital i.e. supplementary capital must not exceed core capital.
The Bank’s regulatory capital is managed by:
• Tier 1 (Core) Capital: - share capital, retained earnings and reserves created by appropriations of retained earnings.
• Tier 2 (Supplementary) Capital – qualifying subordinated loan capital, general loan loss reserve, impairment allowances and unrealised gains arising on the fair valuation of equity instruments.

Total capital to RAA 25.55% 27.89%
Core capital to RAA 25.06% 27.50%

Based on the above, Bank T & T Limited has adequately provided for their capital requirements so as to ensure the continued operations of the organization. The capital adequacy ratio measures the amount of a bank’s capital in relation to the amount of its risk weighted credit exposures.
The Total capital to RAA, although decreased between 2010 and 2009, is way above the minimum and current reserve requirement and the Bank may be foregoing other investments opportunities by holding such a high capital position This is quite likely the main reason they are attempting to fund new asset growth and change the Asset and Liability Committee (ALCO). This also contributes to the assumption that Bank T & T Limited appears to be a risk adverse institution. Core capital is way above the obligatory 50% however there has been a decrease from 27.50% in 2009 to 25.06% in 2010. This position is still way within the required margin but ALCO should continue to monitor this on an ongoing basis.
