Instructions - Annex II CRSA

We are not clear about how should we report exposures with following combination of exposure class on row 020 and 030 of Total Sheet. Should defaulted exposure to SME (subject to supporting factor ) in Corporate / Retail/ Immovable property , be reported on Total Sheet on Row 020 and 030 ? Should exposure to Corporate SME (subject to supporting factor ) which has been reassigned an exposure class "High Risk", be reported on Total Sheet on Row 020 and 030 as well as "Items associated with particular high risk " ?

Reporting of credit risk mitigation on the CR IRB template (C 08.01)

The COREP CR IRB guidelines seem to be conflicting with the validation rules in respect to reporting the substitution effect of Credit Risk Mitigation (CRM), columns 40-80 of the CR IRB template. The instruction for column 040 (Guarantees) is ambiguous, on the other hand it states: "If the CRM effect of the guarantee is calculated by recognition of the substitution effect, the Adjusted Value (Ga) as defined in Article 236 of CRR shall be provided." but also: "When Own estimates of LGD are used: Article 183 of CRR, except paragraph 3. The nominal amount of the guarantees shall be reported." For the substitution approach, the adjusted value of guarantee has to be reported in the column 070 (outflows). The COREP CR IRB template states that the column 070=040+050+060. This formula woud result in the nominal (pre-currency/maturity mismath adjustment) value being transferred from the original obligor's exposure class to the protection provider's exposure class, instead of the adjusted amount. Please clarify which amount is to be reported in the columns 040-050, nominal or adjusted credit protection amounts? In case the answer is different for banks using own LGD estimates and those not, please specify why should this be the case.

Eligibility of subordinated loans for classification as Tier 2 instruments when the rules governing their issue contemplate an obligation of the issuer to repurchase a percentage of them (eligibility limited to the amount of subordinated loans not subject to such repurchase obligation).

Pursuant to the combined application of articles 63 letter k) and 66 letter a) it is correct that a clause – also included in the rules governing the issue of subordinated loans – according to which an issuer is obliged to repurchase a specified amount of subordinated loans does not prevent from classifying such financial instruments as Tier 2 instruments if, in compliance with article 66 letter a), the percentage of subordinated loans that shall be repurchased by the issuer is deducted from Tier 2 items? In other words, a subordinated loans can be classified as Tier 2 instruments if the provisions governing their issue contemplate the undertaking of the issuer to repurchase a specified percentage of the issued subordinated loans provided that - in compliance with article 66 letter a) of CRR - such percentage is deducted from Tier 2 items? The undertaking of the issuer to repurchase part of subordinated loans deriving from the rules governing the issue of such subordinated loans can be considered as a repurchase “contractual obligation” and as a consequence may it fall within one of the cases contemplated under the provisions of article 66 letter a) of CRR?

Own Funds - Subordinated loans as Tier 2 instruments

Our interpretation of Article 63 (g) of the Capital Requirements Regulation (Regulation 575/2013 is that subordinated loans which are perpetual (i.e. do not have a maturity date) would also qualify as Tier 2 instruments under article 63 (g) of the CRR, given that the original maturity would exceed five years (i.e. it would be for an indefinite period). Do you agree with our interpretation? Or is it only subordinated loans with a fixed redemption date (and whose original maturity is of at least five years) which should be recognised as Tier 2 instruments?
