Description: 
Correlations across buckets for credit spread risk for non- securitisations
Main content: 

The correlation parameter γbc that applies to the aggregation of sensitivities between different buckets shall be set as follows:

γbc = γbc(rating) · γbc(sector)

where:

γbc(rating) shall be equal to 1 where the two buckets have the same credit quality category (either credit quality step 1 to 3 or credit quality step 4 to 6), otherwise it shall be equal to 50 %; for the purposes of that calculation, bucket 1 shall be considered as belonging to the same credit quality category as buckets that have credit quality step 1 to 3; and

γbc(sector) shall be equal to 1 where the two buckets belong to the same sector, and otherwise shall be equal to the corresponding percentage set out in Table 5:
