Jurisdictional Countercyclical Capital Buffer Rates Information
Jurisdictional CCyB Rates Information: BCBS Update
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:
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.
