    DNB Proposes Risk-Weight Add-On for RRE Mortgage Loans

    December 12, 2018

    DNB proposed to apply a risk-weight add-on to the portfolio of mortgage loans secured by residential real estate (RRE) located in Belgium. ESRB had recommended reciprocation of this macro-prudential measure by the National Bank of Belgium. DNB intends to reciprocate this measure, with the aim of contributing to effective macro-prudential policy. Banks can respond until January 12, 2019.

    The measure applies to retail exposures secured by immovable property for which the collateral (immovable property) is situated in Belgium and to the Dutch credit institutions using the internal ratings based (IRB) approach. The measure focuses on IRB banks as their model-implied risk-weights are relatively low, compared to those implied by the standardized approach. The reciprocated measure will apply to the exposures, if they are exposures or branches of Dutch credit institutions or cross-border exposures to Belgium. 

    The add-on consists of two elements. The first element consists of a general risk-weight add-on of five percentage points for IRB banks’ retail exposures while the second element determines the size of the (second) additional macro-prudential risk-weight add-on as a fraction (33%) of the micro-prudential risk-weight on the (residential) mortgage portfolio. An institution-specific threshold of EUR 2 billion applies. Credit institutions do not have to apply the add-on, if their exposures in scope of the measure are below this threshold. The Belgian measure is applied under Article 458 (2) (d) (vi) or the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR).
