Tier 2 Capital

Tier 2 Capital

Capital in a bank that is difficult to calculate or liquidate, especially as compared to Tier 1 capital. Under the Basel I Accord, tier 2 capital includes revaluation reserves (or the increase in the value in an asset after it is reappraised), general provisions (or money that the bank has lost but has been unable to calculate), and subordinated debt (or debt that, in the event of default, receives payment only after some other debt). Tier 2 capital is included in calculations of a bank's reserve requirements but is not considered as reliable as Tier 1 capital.
