    PRA Issues Proposals on Trading Activity Wind-Down in Resolution

    October 08, 2021

    The Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) proposed, via CP20/21, expectations on firms’ engagement in trading activities that may affect the financial stability of United Kingdom. These proposals would result in a new Supervisory Statement on trading activity wind-down (TWD), a Statement of Policy (SoP), and amendments to SS9/17 titled "Recovery Planning." The proposed amendments to SS9/17 are in respect of the orderly wind-down of trading activities. The consultation period closes on January 21, 2022. PRA proposes that the implementation date for the changes resulting from CP20/21 would be January 01, 2025. Subject to the consultation responses, PRA intends to publish its final policy in the first half of 2022.

    CP20/21 proposes that firms engaged in trading activities be able to carry out a full or partial orderly wind-down of their trading activities in recovery and post-resolution restructuring. In CP20/21, the wind-down of trading activities, whether it be full or partial, or whether it would be carried out as a recovery or post-resolution restructuring option, is referred to as the TWD option. The proposed expectations are designed to to promote safety and soundness of firms, with this objective advanced primarily by minimizing the adverse effect of firm failure on the financial stability of United Kingdom. The proposals aim to enhance the ability of firms to recover from firm-specific and/or market-wide stress and should be read in conjunction with the Resolvability Assessment Framework of BoE. The draft SoP on trading activity wind-down aims to provide clarity on interaction between expectations outlined in the SS9/17,and the BoE approach to assessing resolvability, including the BoE SoP, which was published alongside the BoE Resolvability Assessment Framework policies. PRA consulted industry when developing the proposed expectations. The proposals in CP20/21 include expectations that firms to whom the policy applies:

    • include a baseline set of factors when designing the scenario or scenarios used to develop and test the TWD option/scenario
    • develop information provision and decision-making capabilities and refresh capabilities 
    • produce and maintain data of a breadth and granularity consistent with the non-mandatory templates set out in the appendices of the draft TWD supervisory statement

    CP20/21 is applicable to all PRA-authorized UK banks, their qualifying parent undertakings and PRA-designated investment firms that are engaged in trading activities, and relevant third country branches. The consultation is also relevant to policymakers and practitioners that would expect to be involved in a firm’s resolution.
