    December 24, 2019

    HKMA published the list of institutions that have been designated as domestic systemically important authorized institutions, or D-SIBs, as of January 01, 2020, along with the associated Higher Loss Absorbency (HLA) requirements for these institutions. The list of authorized institutions designated as D-SIBs remains unchanged compared to the list of D-SIBs published on December 21, 2018. However, the HLA requirement for Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited has been increased from 1.0% to 1.5% while the HLA requirement for Hang Seng Bank Limited has been reduced from 1.5% to 1.0%.

    The D-SIBs in bucket 1, which have an HLA requirement of 1%, are Bank of East Asia Limited, Hang Seng Bank Limited, and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Asia) Limited. The D-SIBs in bucket 2, which have an HLA requirement of 1.5%, are Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited and Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited. Additionally, HSBC Limited has been included in bucket 4, with an HLA requirement of 2.5%

    Under the D-SIB framework, each authorized institution that is designated as a D-SIB will be required to include a HLA requirement into the calculation of its regulatory capital buffers within a period of 12 months after formal notification of the designation. The HLA requirement applicable to a D-SIB ranges between 1.0% and 3.5% (depending on the assessed level of systemic importance of a D-SIB).
