Status: Adopted and published in the Official Journal
The purpose of these RTS is to harmonise the calculation of capital requirements for investment firms with limited authorisation to provide investment services, as well as to harmonise the conditions under which competent authorities can make adjustments to such requirements. To this end, the draft RTS also provide a definition of fixed overheads. These RTS will be part of the Single Rulebook aimed at enhancing regulatory harmonisation in the banking sector in Europe.
