    ACPR Announces Capital Buffers for Systemically Important Institutions

    November 25, 2019

    The French Prudential Supervisory Authority ACPR published a list of Global Systemically Important Institutions (EISm), along with a list of Other Systemically Important Institutions (A-EIS) in France. The lists provides information on the capital buffers applicable to systemically important institutions from January 01, 2020.

    At the global level, the identification of systemic entities (banking and insurance institutions) has been entrusted to FSB. At the European level, the international methodologies for identifying global or domestic systemically important banks have been transposed into European law through the CRD IV directive (Article 131), providing that “Member States shall designate the authority in charge of identifying, on a consolidated basis, global systemically important institutions.” In France, ACPR is in charge of the identification of systemically important entities. Thus, it determines for the banking sector the list of global systemically important institutions (G-SII) and of other systemically important institutions (O-SII), along with the associated capital buffers. For G-SIIs, ACPR actively participates in the international identification exercise coordinated by BCBS. For O-SIIs, the principles of Basel methodology used in the CRD IV have been specified by the EBA guidelines.
