    SRB Chair Outlines MREL Expectations from Banks Amid COVID Crisis

    April 08, 2020

    In a recent article, the SRB Chair Elke König offers clarity on the Board's approach to minimum requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities (MREL) targets, in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Regarding the existing binding targets (set in the 2018 and 2019 cycles), during the current crisis, SRB intends to take a forward-looking approach to banks that may face difficulties meeting those targets before new decisions (with 2022 intermediate targets) take effect. The focus will be on the 2020 decisions and targets. SRB requests banks to continue to make all efforts to provide the necessary data on MREL for the upcoming cycle.

    The SRB Chair highlights that the banking industry has made substantial progress in building up MREL to date and overall it is in a good position today. Nevertheless, during this challenging period, SRB is committed to ensuring that short-term MREL constraints do not prevent banks from lending to business and the real economy. To achieve this, SRB is working together with the national resolution authorities and the banks under its remit to prepare for the implementation of the 2020 resolution planning cycle, including, the changes to MREL decisions under the new banking package (BRRD2/SRMR2). As part of this cycle, new MREL targets will be set according to the transition period in SRMR2—that is, setting the first binding intermediate target for compliance by 2022 and the final target by 2024. The decisions will be based on recent MREL data, and reflect changing capital requirements.
