    FSB on Responses to Consultation on Wind-Down of Trading Portfolios

    August 19, 2019

    FSB published responses received to the consultation on the solvent wind-down of the derivatives and trading book portfolio of a global systemically important bank (G-SIB). The consultation was launched in June 2019, withe the comment period on the consultation ending on August 02, 2019. FSB published the feedback received from Bank Policy Institute (BPI) and Financial Services Forum (FSF); European Banking Federation (EBF); and Global Financial Markets Association (GFMA), Institute for International Finance (IIF), and International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA).

    The considerations set out in the consultation paper included consideration of firms’ general capabilities to conduct a solvent wind-down of derivative and trading book activities, the capital and liquidity resources needed to manage the wind-down, and the implications of a wind-down on the viability of the rest of the group. These considerations may be relevant for authorities and firms for both recovery and resolution planning. Solvent wind-down means that all claims are paid in full and all obligations are met in connection with the derivatives and trading book portfolio that is wound-down in a timely and measured manner. Solvent wind-down analysis explores options for how the exit from such positions could be managed as part of a recovery or a resolution. The consultation paper drew on the practices that are emerging in some jurisdictions and describes, subject to eventual specific requests by supervisory and/or resolution authorities, capabilities and arrangements that may need to be put in place to ensure a solvent wind-down plan can be effectively executed. The paper highlighted that solvent wind-down work in some jurisdictions is more advanced than in others (for example, in certain jurisdictions, firms have been requested to develop solvent wind-down plans based on guidance prepared by authorities).
