    MAS published amendments to the Notice 652 on net stable funding ratio (NSFR) and Notice 656 on exposures to single counterparty groups for banks incorporated in Singapore. MAS Notice 652 (Amendment No. 2) 2019 reflects amendments to clarify the available stable funding factor applicable to operational deposits that are fully covered by deposit insurance. The amendments to Notice 652 shall take effect on December 31, 2019. MAS Notice 656 (Amendment) 2019 reflects amendments to clarify the scope of exemption for intraday exposures to a bank and to clarify the treatment of exposures arising from covered bonds issued by a bank or mortgage institution through a special purpose vehicle.
