Clarifications around which entities to include for those identified by a bloomberg ticker referencing a Sovereign

Background on the question:

Annex I Template C 101.00 includes many sovereign entities referenced by the Bloomberg Ticker. Examples below.

Can we please confirm if this is intended to capture

(a) only exposures directly with the sovereign, or

(b) also exposures with central banks, or

(c) also exposures with other Government agencies.

And if so, should we aggregate the exposures across all Sovereigns / Government Agencies / Central Banks per country and report in one row?

Examples of Government Agencies: Ministries of Finance, Departments of Finance, government owned companies (such as utilities, banks etc)

Examples of sovereign entities referenced by the Bloomberg Ticker in Annex I template C 101.00:

Final Answer:

Each of the entities referenced by a Bloomberg ticker uniquely identifies an entity in Bloomberg. As such, institutions should report the exposures corresponding to these sovereign entities. 


The present Q&A on Supervisory reporting is provisional. It will be reviewed after the Implementing Regulation is in force and published in the Official Journal. The text of the Implementing Regulation may differ from the text of the draft ITS to which this Q&A refers.
