DNB issued the banking and insurance newsletters for April 2019. The newsletters highlight that Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and DNB want to make banks, insurers, and pension funds aware of the risks and the importance of the transition to alternative, risk-free benchmarks (expected in 2022). The supervisors request market parties to analyze the risks of the transition and to take appropriate action, so that they are prepared in time.
The banking newsletter also highlights that DNB has decided to adopt a Belgian macro-prudential measure for the mortgage market. Dutch banks, using internal ratings-based (IRB) approach, that have more than EUR 2 billion in Belgian residential mortgages through branches or directly across borders must apply a higher risk-weight. The additional key highlights of the newsletters include: an update on the study conducted by DNB on management of counterparty credit risk on healthcare providers at four healthcare insurers; recent relevant publications by ECB, EBA, EC, and other international forums; and an updated calendar for banks
