Introduction

80.1

The disclosure requirements set out in this chapter are:

(1)

Template LR1 - Summary comparison of accounting assets vs leverage ratio exposure measure

(2)

Template LR2 - Leverage ratio common disclosure template

80.2

Template LR1 provides a reconciliation of a bank’s total assets as published in its financial statements to the leverage ratio exposure measure, and Template LR2 provides a breakdown of the components of the leverage ratio exposure measure.

Template LR1 - Summary comparison of accounting assets vs leverage ratio exposure measure

Purpose: To reconcile the total assets in the published financial statements with the leverage ratio exposure measure.

Scope of application: The table is mandatory for all banks.

Content: Quantitative information. The leverage ratio standard of the Basel framework (LEV) follows the same scope of regulatory consolidation as used for the risk-based capital requirements standard (RBC). Disclosures should be reported on a quarter-end basis. However, banks may, subject to approval from or due to requirements specified by their national supervisor, use more frequent calculations (eg daily or monthly averaging). Banks are required to include the basis for their disclosures (eg quarter-end, daily averaging or monthly averaging, or a combination thereof).

Frequency: Quarterly.

Format: Fixed.

Accompanying narrative: Banks are required to disclose and detail the source of material differences between their total balance sheet assets, as reported in their financial statements, and their leverage ratio exposure measure.

Explanation

 

1

The bank's total consolidated assets as per published financial statements.

 

2

Where a banking, financial, insurance or commercial entity is outside the regulatory scope of consolidation, only the amount of the investment in the capital of that entity (ie only the carrying value of the investment, as opposed to the underlying assets and other exposures of the investee) shall be included in the leverage ratio exposure measure. However, investments in those entities that are deducted from the bank's CET1 capital or from Additional Tier 1 capital in accordance with CAP30.29 to CAP30.34 may also be deducted from the leverage ratio exposure measure. As these adjustments reduce the total leverage ratio exposure measure, they shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

3

This row shows the reduction of the leverage ratio exposure measure due to the exclusion of securitised exposures that meet the operational requirements for the recognition of risk transference according CRE40.24. As these adjustments reduce the total leverage ratio exposure measure, they shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

4

Adjustments related to the temporary exclusion of central bank reserves from the leverage ratio exposure measure, if enacted by the supervisor to facilitate the implementation of monetary policies as per LEV30.7. As these adjustments reduce the total leverage ratio exposure measure, they shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

5

This row shows the reduction of the consolidated assets for fiduciary assets that are recognised on the bank's balance sheet pursuant to the operative accounting framework and which meet the de-recognition criteria of IAS 39 / IFRS 9 or the IFRS 10 de-consolidation criteria. As these adjustments reduce the total leverage ratio exposure measure, they shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

6

Adjustments for regular-way purchases and sales of financial assets subject to trade date accounting. The adjustment reflects (i) the reverse-out of any offsetting between cash receivables for unsettled sales and cash payables for unsettled purchases of financial assets that may be recognised under the applicable accounting framework, and (ii) the offset between those cash receivables and cash payables that are eligible per the criteria specified in LEV30.10 and LEV30.11. If this adjustment leads to an increase in exposure, it shall be reported as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, it shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

7

Adjustments for eligible cash-pooling transactions. The adjustment is the difference between the accounting value of cash-pooling transactions and the treatments specified in LEV30.12. If this adjustment leads to an increase in exposure, it shall be reported as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, it shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

8

Adjustments related to derivative financial instruments. The adjustment is the difference between the accounting value of the derivatives recognised as assets and the leverage ratio exposure value as determined by application of LEV30.13 to LEV30.16 and LEV30.21 to LEV30.35. If this adjustment leads to an increase in exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a negative amount.

 

9

Adjustments related to Securities Financing Transactions (SFTs) (ie repurchase agreements and other similar secured lending). The adjustment is the difference between the accounting value of the SFTs recognised as assets and the leverage ratio exposure value as determined by application of LEV30.36, LEV30.37 and LEV30.40 to LEV30.44. If this adjustment leads to an increase in the exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a negative amount.

 

10

The credit equivalent amount of off-balance sheet items determined by applying the relevant credit conversion factors to the nominal value of the off-balance sheet item, as specified in LEV30.47 and LEV30.49 to LEV30.56. As these amounts increase the total leverage ratio exposure measure, they shall be reported as a positive amount.

 

11

Adjustments for prudent valuation adjustments and specific and general provisions that have reduced Tier 1 capital. This adjustment reduces the leverage ratio exposure measure by the amount of prudent valuation adjustments and by the amount of specific and general provisions that have reduced Tier 1 capital as determined by LEV30.3 and LEV30.9 and LEV30.48, respectively. This adjustment shall be reported as a negative amount.

 

12

Any other adjustments. If these adjustments lead to an increase in the exposure, institutions shall report this as a positive amount. If these adjustments lead to a decrease in exposure, the institutions shall disclose this as a negative amount.

 

13

The leverage ratio exposure, which should be the sum of the previous items.

 

Linkages across templates

[LR1:13/a] is equal to [LR2:24/a] (depending on basis of calculation)

         

Template LR2: Leverage ratio common disclosure template

Purpose: To provide a detailed breakdown of the components of the leverage ratio denominator, as well as information on the actual leverage ratio, minimum requirements and buffers.

 

Scope of application: The table is mandatory for all banks.

 

Content: Quantitative information. Disclosures should be on a quarter-end basis except where explicitly noted in the instructions for certain rows. However, banks may, subject to approval from or due to requirements specified by their national supervisor, use more frequent calculations (eg daily or monthly averaging). Banks are required to include the frequency of calculation for their disclosures (eg quarter-end, daily averaging or monthly averaging, or a combination thereof).

 

Frequency: Quarterly.

 

Format: Fixed.

 

Accompanying narrative: Banks must describe the key factors that have had a material impact on the leverage ratio for this reporting period compared with the previous reporting period. Banks must also describe the key factors that explain any material differences between the amounts of securities financing transactions (SFTs) that are included in the bank's Pillar 1 leverage ratio exposure measure and the mean values of SFTs that are disclosed in row 28.

Capital measure: The capital measure for the leverage ratio is the Tier 1 capital of the risk-based capital framework as defined in the definition of capital standard (CAP) taking account of the transitional arrangements.

 

Row

number

Explanation

 

1

Banks must include all balance sheet assets in their exposure measure, including on-balance sheet derivatives collateral and collateral for SFTs, with the exception of on-balance sheet derivative and SFT assets that are included in rows 8 to 18. Derivatives and SFTs collateral refer to either collateral received or collateral provided (or any associated receivable asset) accounted as a balance sheet asset. Amounts are to be reported in accordance with LEV30.8 to LEV30.11 and, where applicable, LEV30.5 and LEV30.7.

 

2

Grossed-up amount of any collateral provided in relation to derivative exposures where the provision of that collateral has reduced the value of the balance sheet assets under the bank's operative accounting framework, in accordance with LEV30.23.

 

3

Deductions of receivable assets in the amount of the cash variation margin provided in derivatives transactions where the posting of cash variation margin has resulted in the recognition of a receivable asset under the bank's operative accounting framework.

As the adjustments in this row reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

4

Adjustment for securities received under a securities financing transaction where the bank has recognised the securities as an asset on its balance sheet. These amounts are to be excluded from the exposure measure in accordance with LEV30.37(1).

As the adjustments in this row reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

5

Amounts of general and specific provisions that are deducted from Tier 1 capital which may be deducted from the exposure measure in accordance with LEV30.9.

As the adjustments in this row reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

6

All other balance sheet asset amounts deducted from Tier 1 capital and other regulatory adjustments associated with on-balance sheet assets as specified in LEV30.3.

As the adjustments in this row reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

7

Sum of rows 1 to 6.

 

8

Replacement cost (RC) associated with all derivatives transactions (including exposures resulting from direct transactions between a client and a CCP where the bank guarantees the performance of its clients' derivative trade exposures to the CCP). Where applicable, this amount should be net of cash variation margin received (as set out in LEV30.25), and with bilateral netting (as set out in LEV30.17 to LEV30.20). This amount should be reported with the 1.4 alpha factor applied as specified in LEV30.15 and LEV30.16.

 

9

Add-on amount for the potential future exposure (PFE) of all derivative exposures calculated in accordance with LEV30.15 and LEV30.16. This amount should be reported with the 1.4 alpha factor applied as specified in LEV30.15 and LEV30.16.

 

10

Trade exposures associated with the CCP leg of derivatives transactions resulting from client-cleared transactions or which the clearing member, based on the contractual arrangements with the client, is not obligated to reimburse the client in respect of any losses suffered due to changes in the value of its transactions in the event that a qualifying central counterparty (QCCP) defaults.

As the adjustments in this row reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

11

The effective notional amount of written credit derivatives which may be reduced by the total amount of negative changes in fair value amounts that have been incorporated into the calculation of Tier 1 capital with respect to written credit derivatives according to LEV30.31.

 

12

This row comprises:

  • The amount by which the notional amount of a written credit derivative is reduced by a purchased credit derivative on the same reference name according to LEV30.31.
  • The deduction of add-on amounts for PFE in relation to written credit derivatives determined in accordance with LEV30.35.

As the adjustments in this row reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

13

Sum of rows 8 to 12.

 

14

The gross amount of SFT assets without recognition of netting, other than novation with QCCPs, determined in accordance with LEV30.37, adjusted for any sales accounting transactions in accordance with LEV30.40.

 

15

The cash payables and cash receivables of gross SFT assets with netting determined in accordance with LEV30.37(1)(b). As these adjustments reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

16

The amount of the counterparty credit risk add-on for SFTs determined in accordance with LEV30.37(2).

 

17

The amount for which the bank acting as an agent in a SFT has provided an indemnity or guarantee determined in accordance with LEV30.41 to LEV30.44.

 

18

Sum of rows 14 to 17.

 

19

Total off-balance sheet exposure amounts (excluding off-balance sheet exposure amounts associated with SFT and derivative transactions) on a gross notional basis, before any adjustment for credit conversion factors (CCFs).

 

20

Reduction in gross amount of off-balance sheet exposures due to the application of CCFs as specified in LEV30.49 to LEV30.56. As these adjustments reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

21

Amounts of specific and general provisions associated with off-balance sheet exposures that are deducted from Tier 1 capital, the absolute value of which is not to exceed the sum of rows 19 and 20. As these adjustments reduce the exposure measure, they shall be reported as negative figures.

 

22

Sum of rows 19 to 21.

 

23

The amount of Tier 1 capital of the risk-based capital framework as defined in the definition of capital standard (CAP) taking account of the transitional arrangements.

 

24

Sum of rows 7, 13, 18 and 22.

 

25

The leverage ratio is defined as the Tier 1 capital measure divided by the exposure measure, with this ratio expressed as a percentage.

 

25a

If a bank's leverage ratio exposure measure is subject to a temporary exemption of central bank reserves, this ratio is defined as the Tier 1 capital measure divided by the sum of the exposure measure and the amount of the central bank reserves exemption, with this ratio expressed as a percentage.

If the bank's leverage ratio exposure measure is not subject to a temporary exemption of central bank reserves, this ratio will be identical to the ratio reported in row 25.

 

26

The minimum leverage ratio requirement applicable to the bank. This number will be higher than 3% in the case of a bank belonging to a jurisdiction which has exercised the discretion to exempt central bank reserves from the computation of the leverage ratio requirement.

 

27

Total applicable leverage buffers. To include the G-SIB leverage ratio buffer requirement and any other applicable buffers.

 

28

Mean of the sums of rows 14 and 15, based on the sums calculated as of each day of the reporting quarter.

 

29

If rows 14 and 15 are based on quarter-end values, this amount is the sum of rows 14 and 15.
If rows 14 and 15 are based on averaged values, this amount is the sum of quarter-end values corresponding to the content of rows 14 and 15.

 

30

Total exposure measure (including the impact of any applicable temporary exemption of central bank reserves), using mean values calculated as of each day of the reporting quarter for the amounts of the exposure measure associated with gross SFT assets (after adjustment for sale accounting transactions and netted of amounts of associated cash payables and cash receivables).

 

30a

Total exposure measure (excluding the impact of any applicable temporary exemption of central bank reserves), using mean values calculated as of each day of the reporting quarter for the amounts of the exposure measure associated with gross SFT assets (after adjustment for sale accounting transactions and netted of amounts of associated cash payables and cash receivables).
If the bank's leverage ratio exposure measure is not subject to a temporary exemption of central bank reserves, this value will be identical to the value reported in row 30.

 

31

Tier 1 capital measure divided by the exposure measure (including the impact of any applicable temporary exemption of central bank reserves), using mean values calculated as of each day of the reporting quarter for the amounts of the exposure measure associated with gross SFT assets (after adjustment for sale accounting transactions and netted of amounts of associated cash payables and cash receivables).

 

31a

Tier 1 capital measure divided by the exposure measure (excluding the impact of any applicable temporary exemption of central bank reserves), using mean values calculated as of each day of the reporting quarter for the amounts of the exposure measure associated with gross SFT assets (after adjustment for sale accounting transactions and netted of amounts of associated cash payables and cash receivables).
If the bank's leverage ratio exposure measure is not subject to a temporary exemption of central bank reserves, this ratio will be identical to the value reported in row 31.
