DNB Publishes Several Regulatory Updates for Banks in March 2021
DNB decided to leave the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB) for banks to be unchanged at 0% for this quarter. Although DNB intends to build up CCyB eventually, the activation of CCyB is not expected before the end of 2021. DNB also published its first report on financial climate-related risks and opportunities in accordance with the recommendations from Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
