    PRA Publishes Q&A on Usability of Liquidity and Capital Buffers

    April 20, 2020

    PRA published a set of questions and answers (Q&A) on the usability of liquidity and capital buffers and their operation as set out in PRA rules and guidelines. This document is relevant to all firms to which the Capital Requirements Directive IV applies. The document will be updated as the COVID-19 situation evolves. New Q&As and updates to the existing Q&As will appear in Italics.

    In the recent weeks, BoE and its three policy committees have announced a number of measures to help UK businesses and households to bridge across the economic disruption resulting from COVID-19 outbreak. These actions have sought to reduce pressure on banks, building societies, and designated investment firms (also called "banks") while ensuring that the financial system can be a source of strength for the economy during this challenging period. PRA and the Financial Policy Committee have, on several occasions, stated their expectations that all element of substantial capital and liquidity buffers that have been built up by banks exist to be used as necessary to support the economy. This document answers some commonly asked questions on the usability of these capital and liquidity buffers.
