The MPA system takes into account several factors, including banks' capital adequacy and leverage ratios; the quality of assets, liquidity and foreign debt risks; and interest-rate pricing. Wealth-management assessment falls under "broad credit loans," a term the MPA adopted to represent loans, bonds, equities and certain other investments.
