EBA launched a consultation on the guidelines about the types of exposures that are to be associated with high risk under the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). The guidelines specify which types of exposures, other than those mentioned in Article 128 (2) CRR, are to be associated with particularly high risk and under which circumstances. The guidelines also clarify the notion of investments in venture capital firms and private equity. The consultation runs until July 17, 2018.
In line with the mandate for EBA in Article 128 (3) of the CRR, this consultation paper is seeking views on the exposure classes that could contain high-risk items. In addition, it specifies the method that institutions can use to inform supervisors about the occurrence of high-risk items in their portfolios, which are considered as structurally different from common exposures of the same asset class. EBA also included a clarification about the notion of investments in venture capital firms and private equity. The aim is to provide guidance and ensure harmonization of the type of exposures considered as investments in venture capital firms and private equity.
