Net Stable Funding Ratio disclosure requirements finalised by the Basel Committee

Press release  | 
22 June 2015

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has today issued the final Net Stable Funding Ratio ("NSFR") disclosure standards, following the publication of the NSFR standard in October 2014.

Similar to the LCR disclosure framework, this requirement will improve the transparency of regulatory funding requirements, reinforce the Principles for sound liquidity risk management and supervision, strengthen market discipline, and reduce uncertainty in the markets as the NSFR is implemented.

It is important that banks adopt a common public disclosure framework to help market participants consistently assess banks' funding risk. To promote the consistency and usability of disclosures related to the NSFR, the Committee has agreed that internationally active banks in all Basel Committee member jurisdictions will be required to publish their NSFRs according to a common template.

In parallel with the implementation of the NSFR standard, supervisors will give effect to these disclosure requirements, and banks will be required to comply with them from the date of the first reporting period after 1 January 2018.
