Bank capital adequacy - MREL

In the context of the EU Minimum Requirement for own funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL) for banks, eligible liabilities are ones which can be counted towards the bank's total regulatory loss-absorbing capacity.

Eligible liabilities are liabilities which can legally - and easily - be bailed-in to recapitalise the bank on its resolution.
