    CMF Consults on Methodology to Calculate Consumer Loan Provisions

    August 17, 2022

    The Financial Market Commission (CMF) is consulting on a standardized methodology to calculate the provisions for consumer loans and contingent credits granted by banking institutions established in Chile. CMF also published a regulatory report, presentation, and frequently asked questions (FAQs) related to the draft rules. The consultation is open for comments until October 21, 2022.

    The regulation under the consultation aims to introduce a standard method of provisioning for consumer loans in Chapter B-1 of the Compendium of Accounting Standards for Banks. As for the other portfolios, the regulation establishes matrices to determine the probability of default (PD) and the loss-given default (LGD) used to calculate the level of provisions. This methodology follows the best international practices and is consistent with the rest of the regulatory provisions related to the determination of capital requirements for credit risk. It also considers risk factors allowing a timely recognition of credit risk as well as generating incentives to manage it prudently and strengthen the stability of the banking system. Considering the size of the consumer portfolio as of December 2021 and if the consumer behavior does not change significantly, the new methodology would mean an increase of nearly USD 1 billion in provisions, which can be offset with other voluntary provisions available to banks. Therefore, this methodology would not have a significant impact on the capital adequacy levels of banks, which have sufficient buffers to absorb it.
