German term or phrase: EKK angesetzt
Die Eigenkapitalrendite (EKR) ist das Verhältnis des Gewinns zum Eigenkapital einer Bank.
Die Relation zeigt an, wie effizient ein Finanzhaus die Mittel einsetzt, die ihm die Aktionäre zur Verfügung stellen.
Im Durchschnitt kommen die siebzehn kotierten Kantonal- und Retailbanken auf eine EKR von 6,1%.
Dem stehen die Eigenkapitalkosten (EKK) gegenüber, die bei der Investition des Kapitals entstehen.
Die EKK werden oft als Summe des risikolosen Zinses (langfristige Staatsanleihen) sowie markt- und branchenspezifischer Risikofaktoren berechnet.
Im Schweizer Retail Banking werden EKK von 6,5 bis 8% angesetzt, was die meisten Banken mit ihrer EKR nicht decken.

There is a formula e.g. CAPM used to calculate (berechnen) the cost of equity (EKK here) based on the risk-free rate plus company/industry beta, but what is the sense of COE rates being 'angesetzt' which would usually be rendered as 'set' here?

cost of equity is (calculated/recognized/set) at
Explanation:
(more or less literally) The CoE in Swiss retail banking is (calculated/recognized/set) at rates from 6.5% to 8, which most of the banks do not cover with their RoE.

But better would the CoE "ranges from"

Thanks. Bearing this in mind, I will use calculate or recognise rather than set.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Yes 'ranges from' considered that too...CBs can 'set' IR policy but a bank cannot set its own CoE. Recognized/Calculated would work too. Thanks


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Gordon Matthews: I try to avoid the use of parentheses and giving alternative translations, such as "recognised/calculated/set". I would suggest: "In Swiss retail banking the reported COE ranges from 6.5% to 8%." "reported" seems to me to better portray what is happening.
