    PRA Consults on Rules for Domestic Liquidity Sub-Groups

    September 28, 2021

    The Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) proposed rules on the application of prudential liquidity requirements to domestic liquidity sub-groups. The published consultation paper (CP19/21) also proposed revisions to the approach to granting a domestic liquidity sub-groups permission. The consultation closes on October 12, 2021, with the rule finalization expected in November 2021 and the implementation date for the changes expected to be January 01, 2022.

    Where certain conditions are met on the availability, distribution, management, and monitoring of liquidity, the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) allows PRA to waive the application of liquidity requirements at the level of an individual firm and to permit a firm to form a domestic liquidity sub-group; these requirements encompass the liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) and liquidity risk management, monitoring, reporting, and disclosures. Where a domestic liquidity sub-groups permission is granted, PRA requirements apply at the level of a domestic liquidity sub-group on the basis of the consolidated situation of its members, rather than applying to member firms individually. This reflects the ability of some firms to manage their liquidity jointly with other entities, as if they were a single entity. HM Treasury will revoke this provision from Saturday January 01, 2022. CP19/21 proposes to:

    • Permit the inclusion in a domestic liquidity sub-group of firms that are subsidiaries of a common immediate UK qualifying parent undertaking that is not a bank or PRA-designated investment firm (referred to in this consultation as a "sibling domestic liquidity sub-group")
    • Revise the conditions to qualify for a domestic liquidity sub-group permission and the factors that PRA will take into account when considering domestic liquidity sub-group applications

    CP19/21 would result in changes to the Liquidity (CRR) Part of the PRA Rulebook and the Statement of Policy (SoP) titled "Liquidity and funding permissions." This consultation is relevant to PRA-authorized UK banks, PRA-designated UK investment firms, and building societies. It is also relevant to the UK financial or mixed financial holding companies that are the immediate parent undertakings of firms that may be included in a domestic liquidity sub-groups. It is not relevant to credit unions.
