The Commission for the Financial Market (CMF) in Chile is consulting to adjust the description of sub-factors used to calculate the index of systemic importance of banks, in accordance with the Chapter 21-11 of the Updated Compilation of Rules for Banks (RAN). Such sub-factors are reported through File R11 of the Information Systems Manual for banks. The aim of this adjustment is to move toward better quality of information for determining systemically important banks. The aim of the proposed changes is to clarify the instruments that should be excluded from sub-factor 11 (Assets at fair value) as well as modify the definition of sub-factor 12 (third-party assets under management of the bank). CMF has published a regulatory report that assesses the impact of this proposal and this consultation is open until September 06, 2021.
CMF also published a consultation to update the December 2019 version of the Compendium of Accounting Standards for banks, in addition to the adjustments to certain files of the Information System Manual for banks. The Compendium of Accounting Standards, which was published in December 2019, is applicable from January 2022. The proposal under consultation incorporates the necessary accounting information to comply with full implementation of Basel III standards. The proposal addresses situations arising from internal analysis as well as feedback received from stakeholders in the banking system. The consultation was open until August 23, 2021.
