If the same hedge derivative contract is used in different transactions (i.e. to hedge multiple risks), shall the nominal amounts be reported gross and multiple times (column 030, table 11.1)?
When portions of derivatives are designated in more than one hedge accounting relationship type, each portion of the derivative is reported in FINREP in accordance to the type of hedge accounting applied. E.g. a cross currency interest rate swap (CIRS) can be split in different components hedging different risks. These components should be reported in FINREP in accordance to the risk hedged and the type of hedge. Should the notional amount for these components be reported gross for each of these components? E.g. if a cross currency swap is used in three different hedging relationships. The notional amount of the components of the cross currency swap should be reported three times.
When the same derivative contract is used to hedge different risks, the notional amount of the contract should be reported only once. The criteria given in paragraph 68 of Part 2 of Annex V of the
Draft ITS on Supervisory reporting should be used to determine the risk category in which the contract is to be reported.
