Jurisdictional Countercyclical Capital Buffer Rates Information

Jurisdictional CCyB Rates  Information: BCBS Update

November 2019

Last month (on 14th October 2019), the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) updated its information regarding Jurisdictional l Capital Buffer (CCyB) rates that are in force.

The updated content on the BCBS website comprised of confirmations of CCyB policy rates as well as notice of increases and a decrease as follows:

Countercyclical capital buffer rates

The Countercyclical Capital Buffer is an amount of capital a firm will have to set aside in relation to a firm's exposure in other jurisdictions, the aim of which is to avoid a breach of minimum capital requirements. It is often shortened in reference to CCyB.

The current CCyB of the UK is 1%. This means that banks are required to have an additional cushion of capital with which to absorb potential losses, enhancing their resilience and contributing to a stable financial system.

The requirement for Countercyclical Capital Buffer and a number of the associated consequences will not only apply to Banks, but also to some Investment Firms subject to IFPRU.
