    HKMA Revises Regulatory Templates and Instructions for Banks

    June 04, 2021

    HKMA revised the template and completion instructions for the leverage ratio return (Form MA(BS)27); completion instructions for the Return of Stable Funding Position of an authorized institution (Form MA(BS)26)1) and the Return on large exposures (Form MA(BS)28), and the templates for relevant Pillar 3 disclosures. Reporting institutions should submit the three returns based on the revised completion instructions from June 30, 2021. HKMA specified that, to align with the upcoming revision to the submission deadline of the Return of Capital Adequacy Ratio (Form MA(BS)3) and some other returns, the submission deadline of the Form MA(BS)27 will be shortened from six weeks to one month commencing from the reporting position of March 31, 2022. Additionally, the revised disclosure templates will apply to disclosures for any reporting period ending on or after June 30, 2021.

    The leverage ratio Form MA(BS)27 collects information on the leverage position of authorized institutions incorporated in Hong Kong; this return should be submitted quarterly. This return and its completion instructions should be read in conjunction with the Banking (Capital) Rules and the relevant supervisory policy or guidance on the capital adequacy (CAR) framework and the leverage ratio framework. For the Return of Stable Funding Position, completion instructions are for category 1 institutions and category 2A institutions to calculate and report the Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR) and Core Funding Ratio (CFR), respectively, by using Return MA(BS)26, which is a quarterly return. The large exposures form MA(BS)28) is for the reporting of data under the the Banking (Exposure Limits) Rules (Cap. 155S), which was implemented on July 01, 2019; this return collects information on large exposures of an authorized institution to a single counterparty/group of linked counterparties, non-bank connected parties, and group affiliates.

    Finally, the disclosure requirements applicable to the authorized institutions are provided mainly in the Banking (Disclosure) Rules issued of HKMA under section 60A of the Banking Ordinance. All  authorized institutions, except for those exempted such as smaller banks, are required to comply with the disclosure requirements. Authorized institutions are required to use the standard HKMA-specified templates under sections 6(1)(ab) and 88(1)(b) of the Banking (Disclosure) Rules to disclose information associated with the Basel regulatory standards.
