FSB published two guidance documents to assist authorities in implementing its Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for global systemically important banks (G-SIBs). One guidance is on principles for authorities to consider as they develop plans for the effective execution of bail-in resolution strategies for G-SIBs while the other guidance covers the development of a resolution funding plan for G-SIBs.
Principles on Bail-in Execution. Bail-in within resolution is at the core of resolution strategies of G-SIBs. The guidance sets out principles to assist authorities as they make bail-in resolution strategies operational. The principles cover:
Disclosures on the instruments and liabilities within the scope of bail-in
Valuations to inform and support the application of bail-in
Processes to suspend or cancel the listing of securities, to notify creditors, and to deliver new securities or tradable certificates following entry into resolution
Securities law and securities exchange requirements during the bail-in
Processes for transferring governance and control rights to a new board and management for the firm emerging from resolution
Communications to creditors and the market at large
Funding Strategy Elements of an Implementable Resolution Plan. This second guidance document covers the development of a resolution funding plan for G-SIBs. It builds on the FSB’s August 2016 Guiding Principles on the temporary funding needed to support the orderly resolution of a G-SIB and existing supervisory and resolution guidance on liquidity risk management and resolution planning. The guidance covers:
Firms’ capabilities to support monitoring, reporting, and estimating funding needs in resolution and executing the funding strategy
Development of resolution funding plans by authorities
Reliance on firm assets and private funding as preferred sources of funding in resolution
Access to temporary public sector backstop funding mechanisms and ordinary central bank facilities
Information sharing and coordination between authorities
The guidance documents were issued for public consultation in November 2017 and have been revised in light of the comments received during the consultation. Along with the final guidance, FSB published feedback notes setting out how responses to the November public consultations have been incorporated into the final guidance.The guidance will support the application of the overall policy framework to end “too-big-to-fail.”
