Form LMT_G covers FINMA supervisory categories 1 and 2 while Form LMT_GO covers FINMA supervisory categories 3 to 5, with the reference date of March 31, 2021. The updates to the forms also affect the XML schema.
For LMT_G, the reporting frequency is monthly and the standard deadline for submitting data is 30 days. For LMT_GO, the reporting frequency is quarterly and the standard deadline for submitting data is 60 days. Data are collected by SNB on behalf of FINMA. FINMA divides the prudentially supervised banks and securities firms into supervisory categories. Category 1 includes large institutions that may jeopardize the stability of the financial system. In the lower categories, the risk impact of the market participants in the other categories gradually decreases up to category 5. Category 1 refers to the extremely large, significant, and complex market participants posing very high risk while category 2 refers to the very significant, complex market participants posing high risk. Categories 3 to 5 refer to institutions posing significant risk, average risk, and low risk, respectively.
