The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today 2017 data relating to two key concepts in the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive: available financial means, and covered deposits. This publication is done on a yearly basis, with the objective of enhancing the transparency and public accountability of DGSs across the EU to the benefit of depositors, markets, policymakers, DGSs and Members States.
The European Banking Authority (EBA) launched today two consultations on draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) specifying an economic downturn and on a set of Guidelines related to the estimation of loss given default (LGD) appropriate for conditions of an economic downturn. The draft RTS specify the nature, severity and duration of an economic downturn, while the Guidelines focus on the appropriate estimation of the LGD in a situation of economic downturn. This package is part of the EBA’s broader work on the review of the IRB approach aiming at reducing the unjustified variability in the outcomes of internal models, while preserving the risk sensitivity of capital requirements. The consultations run until 22 June 2018.
On Tuesday 26 June 2018, from 10.00 to 12.00 UK time, the European Banking Authority (EBA) will be holding a public hearing to outline its draft answer to the Commission’s Call for Advice (CfA) on the European Secured Notes. The hearing comes ahead of the publication of the EBA’s final report, which is expected by mid-July 2018.
