How should to treat potential inflows regarding an unsecured securities borrowing transaction as they are not mentioned within Article 425 (2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR) be treated.
An institution has lent government bonds by way of an unsecured securities borrowing transaction. As the bonds are not available at the reporting date and therfore don´t fulfill the restrictions laid down in Art. 417 b) CRR they do not qualify as HQLA. But the bank has the right to terminate the securities borrowing transaction an a dayly basis and could get the bonds back within three days.
In accordance with Article 425(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR), institutions shall report in full only contractual inflows from outstanding exposures that are not past due and for which the institution has no reason to expect non-performance measured over the next 30 days. Thus, securities lent via unsecured securities borrowing transaction can be reported as inflows only if they have been contractually recalled and due within the next 30 days, and only if they are eligible to the stock of liquid assets in accordance with Article 416 of the CRR. These recalled securities shall be reported up to their market value net of haircuts prudently valued according to Article 418 of the CRR.
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.
