What will be the treatment of the "phased-out" amounts which exceed the applicable percentages according to Article 486 (5)) of grandfathered Additional Tier 1 instruments which are non-eligible due to an incentive to redeem (accord. to Art 489) or a coupon pusher (accord. to Art 53 (a)), during the grandfathering period (accord. to Art. 486 (5)). Will the phased-out amounts flow into grandfathered Tier 2 amounts (subject to applicable limits) or will they lose their regulatory recognition completely (i.e. are these amounts entirely eliminated from regulatory own funds)?
Update 26.03.2021: This Q&A has been reviewed in the light of the changes introduced to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR) and continues to be relevant.
