equity buffers


French (France)
Hello everybody. I need some help with expression : "equity buffers".
Here is the context : "European banks have thinner equity buffers than their American counterparts", it's from an economic article in the English press I'm trying to translate...

I think it means somehing really special, purely economic, but I do not manage to find any explanation or translation anywhere.

If someone could help me I'll be glad :)

    j'ai trouvé quelques idées dans le dico
    buffer = réserves financières, stock de régularisation
    equity = participation
    equity capital = capitaux propres

    donc, si on mélange tout ça :
    réserves propres? (car je ne vois pas ce que la participation viendrait faire là)
