JFSA proposed amendments to the regulatory notices related to leverage ratio requirements. Owing to the continuous uncertainty amid pandemic, JFSA is proposing to extend its decision to exclude the outstanding balance of financial institutions’ current accounts at BOJ from the calculation of leverage ratio until the end of March 2022. In June 2020, JFSA had decided to exclude this outstanding balance from the calculation of leverage ratio until the end of March 2021. This decision was made to maintain harmonization between the monetary policy of BOJ and the prudential regulations for banks and other financial institutions. The feedback period for the proposed amendments ended on March 05, 2021.
