Reporting of cash flows related to ‘forward starting’ transactions in the C 66.00 maturity ladder template

What are the exact requirements for the reporting of cash flows related to ‘forward starting’ transaction (transactions already agreed and valid as of the reporting date, yet producing both start and end cash flows in the future) in C 66.00 maturity ladder template? Would it be possible to report the start leg and end leg of a forward starting transaction in the same row?

The prevailing implementing technical standards (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014 of 16th April 2014 as amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2018/1627 of 9th October 2018 provide guidance, about the breakdown of figures relevant for the calculation of market risk, when using internal models. In the Annex II point 5.7.1 - General Remarks, is stated: "142. Generally, the reporting depends on the structure of the model of the institutions whether they report the figures for general and specific risk separately or together. The same holds true for the decomposition of the VAR /Stress-Var into the risk categories (interest rate risk, equity risk, commodities risk and foreign exchange risk). An institution can resign to report the decompositions mentioned above if it proves that a reporting of these figures would be unduly burdensome". Considering that the separate reporting of specific and generic risk, for equity instruments, would be unduly burdensome and low material, it is not foreseen by the structure of the model applied, therefore we judge that total amounts for general and specific risk should be checked against total positions only. This feature has never been reviewed during the assessments and extensions of the model.

C 70 treatment of multiple currencies

If on the same day for one counterparty, funds in one currency are maturing and new funds are obtained in another currency, should these be treated as new funds or rollovers on the C 70 total template? In the case where the maturing deposit is replaced by more than one new deposit and both have different initial maturities, should the amount in rollover be proportionally spread across both time buckets?

Use of rating before or after transfer in the calculation of the one-year default rates

In a situation where a parent institution (good rating) has issued a full encompassing guarantee for a subsidiary - bad rating, thus supporting the subsidiary before a default event, and preventing (or reducing the risk of) a default – would this constitute a substitution effect due to a credit risk mitigation under paragraph 74 of EBA Guidelines EBA/GL/2017/16?

Need of prior permission to include minority interest arising from Common Equity Tier 1 instruments issued by subsidiaries located in EU member state and third countries in consolidated CET1 capital of parent institutions established in the EU.

According to Article 26(3) CRR, as amended by Regulation (EU) 2019/876 (CRR2), is a prior permission by the competent authority required in order for a parent institution located in the EU to include in consolidated CET1 capital minority interests, arising from CET1 instruments, issued by subsidiaries located (a) in an EU Member State, or (b) in a third country? The answer should also clarify whether before granting a permission pursuant to Article 26(3) CRR (if such permission is required), the competent authority is required to consult the EBA (as per the third subparagraph of Article 26(3) CRR), as the instruments issued by the subsidiaries in third countries would not be included in the EBA CET1 instruments list.

Weighted average of the CCF

Internal authorized EAD models may calculate the EAD by means of several parameters, since the exposure behavior could be explained by different factors. Considering that this type of EAD internal model does not estimate a unique CCF, but rather several factors that are applied to different exposure components, the consequent approach implemented to report the CCF in Template C.101 ,C102 and C.103 has been the following: include in the field as per C.100 in Annex IV the parameter that, in the internal EAD formula, is applied to the undrawn amount, in line with the weights that shall be used to compute the average of the CCF at counterparty/portfolio level, according to the provision reported in Annex IV which make reference to art. 166, par 8 of CRR. Please confirm that this approach is in line with the provision set in ITS as for Annex IV C.100.

Treatment of securitisation Class A notes guaranteed by a Member State

Pursuant to specific national decree, an originator of NPLs under a securitisation transaction complying with certain requirements may request the government to guarantee the payments of interest and principal on the senior tranche of asset-backed securities. Where senior noteholders of a securitisation benefit from this unconditional, irrevocable and first-demand guarantee from a Member State, what is the expected treatment in the LCR for securitisation notes with respect to Articles 10 and 13? Do we have to consider that article 13 prevails to any other article when qualifying the eligibility for a securitisation?
