Description: 
Intra-bucket correlations for equity risk
Main content: 

1. The delta risk correlation parameter ρkl between two sensitivities WSk and WSl within the same bucket shall be set at 99,90 % where one is a sensitivity to an equity spot price and the other a sensitivity to an equity repo rate, where both are related to the same equity issuer name.

2. In other cases than the cases referred to in paragraph 1, the correlation parameter ρkl between two sensitivities WSk and WSl to equity spot price within the same bucket shall be set as follows:

(a) 15 % between two sensitivities within the same bucket that fall under the category large market capitalisation, emerging market economy (bucket number 1, 2, 3 or 4);

(b) 25 % between two sensitivities within the same bucket that fall under the category large market capitalisation, advanced economy (bucket number 5, 6, 7 or 8);

(c) 7,5 % between two sensitivities within the same bucket that fall under the category small market capitalisation, emerging market economy (bucket number 9);

(d) 12,5 % between two sensitivities within the same bucket that fall under the category small market capitalisation, advanced economy (bucket number 10).

3. The correlation parameter ρkl between two sensitivities WSk and WSl to equity repo rate within the same bucket shall be set in accordance with paragraph 2.

4. Between two sensitivities WSk and WSl within the same bucket where one is a sensitivity to an equity spot price and the other a sensitivity to an equity repo rate and both sensitivities relate to a different equity issuer name, the correlation parameter ρkl shall be set to the correlation parameters specified in paragraph 2, multiplied by 99,90 %.

5. The correlation parameters specified in paragraphs 1 to 4 shall not apply to bucket 11. The capital requirement for the delta risk aggregation formula within bucket 11 shall be equal to the sum of the absolute values of the net weighted sensitivities allocated to that bucket:
