    Proposal for a

    REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

     

    amending Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and Directive 2014/59/EU as regards the prudential treatment of global systemically important institution groups with a multiple point of entry resolution strategy and a methodology for the indirect subscription of instruments eligible for meeting the minimum requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities

    (Text with EEA relevance)

    THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

    Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 114 thereof,

     

    Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

    After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

    Having regard to the opinion of the European Central Bank[3],

    Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee[4],

    Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure,

    Whereas:

    (1) Directive (EU) 2019/879 of the European Parliament and of the Council[5], Regulation (EU) 2019/877 of the European Parliament and of the Council[6] and Regulation (EU) 2019/876 of the European Parliament and of the Council[7] amended the Union bank resolution framework, through amendments to Directive 2014/59/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council[8], Regulation (EU) No 806/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council[9] and Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council[10]. Those amendments were necessary to implement in the Union the international Total Loss-absorbing Capacity (TLAC) Term Sheet (the ‘TLAC standard’)[11] for global systemically important banks and to enhance the application of the minimum requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities (MREL) for all banks. The revised Union bank resolution framework should better ensure that the loss absorption and recapitalisation of banks occurs through private means when those banks become financially unviable and are, subsequently, placed in resolution.

    (2) Article 12a of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 provides that global systemically important institution (G-SII) groups with a resolution strategy under which more than one group entity might be resolved (Multiple Point of Entry (MPE) resolution strategy) are to calculate their risk-based requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities under the theoretical assumption that only one entity of the group would be resolved, with the losses and recapitalisation needs of any subsidiaries of that group being transferred to the resolution entity (Single Point of Entry (SPE) resolution strategy). A similar requirement is provided for in Article 45d(4) of Directive 2014/59/EU, for the additional requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities that may be imposed by resolution authorities pursuant to paragraph 3 of that Article. In line with the TLAC standards, those calculations should take into account all third-country entities belonging to a G-SII that would be resolution entities were they established in the Union.

    (3) According to Article 45h(2), third subparagraph, of Directive 2014/59/EU, and to the TLAC standard, the sum of the actual requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities of a G-SII group with an MPE resolution strategy must not be lower than that group’s theoretical requirement under an SPE resolution strategy. Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, namely Articles 12a and 92a(3), should be aligned with the corresponding provisions of Directive 2014/59/EU and ensure that resolution authorities always act in accordance with that Directive and consider both the requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities laid down in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 as well as any additional requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities determined in accordance with Article 45d of Directive 2014/59/EU. This should not prevent resolution authorities from concluding that any adjustment to minimise or eliminate the difference between the sum of the actual requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities of a G-SII group with an MPE resolution strategy and that group’s theoretical requirement under an SPE resolution strategy, when the former is higher than the latter, would be inappropriate or inconsistent with the G-SII’s resolution strategy. To ensure consistency between Article 12a of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and Article 45h(2) of Directive 2014/59/EU, the calculation referred to in Article 45h(2) of that Directive should also take into account all third-country entities belonging to a G-SII that would be resolution entities if they were established in the Union.

    (4) Article 92b of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 sets out that the requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities for material subsidiaries of non-EU G-SIIs that are not resolution entities may inter alia be met with eligible liabilities instruments. However, the eligibility criteria for eligible liabilities instruments laid down in Article 72b(2), points (c), (k), (l) and (m), of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 presuppose the issuing entity to be a resolution entity. It should be ensured that those material subsidiaries can issue debt instruments that meet all eligibility criteria, as originally intended.

    (5) According to Article 72e(4), first subparagraph, of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, resolution authorities may permit a G-SII with an MPE resolution strategy to deduct certain holdings of own funds and eligible liabilities instruments of its subsidiaries that do not belong to the same resolution group by deducting a lower, adjusted amount specified by the resolution authority. Article 72e(4), second subparagraph, of that Regulation requires that in such cases, the difference between the adjusted amount and the original amount is deducted from the loss absorbing and recapitalisation capacity of the subsidiaries concerned. In line with the TLAC standard, that approach should take into account the risk-based and non-risk-based requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities of the subsidiary concerned. Furthermore, that approach should be applicable to all third-country subsidiaries belonging to that G-SII, as long as those subsidiaries are subject to a ▌resolution regime that according to the relevant EU resolution authority, is legally enforceable and implements internationally agreed standards, more specifically the Financial Stability Board’s ‘Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions and its TLAC Standard.

    (6) To operationalise the approach of indirect subscription of internal MREL eligible instruments within resolution groups and to ensure that that approach is prudentially sound, the European Banking Authority (EBA) was mandated under Article 45f(6) of Directive 2014/59/EU, as amended by Directive (EU) 2019/879, to develop draft regulatory technical standards to specify a methodology for such an indirect subscription of eligible instruments. However, as highlighted by the EBA in its letter to the Commission dated 25 January 2021, there were several inconsistencies between the requirements for the delegation laid down in Directive 2014/59/EU and the existing prudential rules laid down in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, which did not allow the application of the prudential treatment needed for the mandate to be fulfilled as originally intended. More precisely, the EBA noted that Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 did not allow for the deduction of internal MREL eligible instruments and, subsequently, for the application of an appropriate risk weight in all the cases relevant for the mandate under Directive 2014/59/EU. Similar issues were identified in the area of the leverage ratio requirement laid down in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. In light of those legal constraints, the methodology developed by the EBA should be incorporated directly into Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. Consequently, the mandate to develop draft regulatory technical standards set out in Article 45f(6) of Directive 2014/59/EU, as amended by Directive (EU) 2019/879, should be deleted.

    (7) In the context of the indirect subscription of internal MREL eligible instruments by resolution entities pursuant to the revised Union bank resolution framework, intermediate entities should be required to deduct the full holding of internal MREL eligible resources that meet the conditions set out in Article 45f(2) of Directive 2014/59/EU, and that are issued by entities that are not themselves resolution entities and which belong to the same resolution group up to an amount equivalent to the internal MREL requirements of such entities. This ensures the proper functioning of the internal loss-absorbing and recapitalisation mechanisms within a group and avoids the double-counting of the internal MREL eligible resources of the subsidiary for the purposes of compliance by the intermediate parent with its own internal MREL. To ensure that the deduction regime remains proportionate, intermediate parents should be able to choose the mix of instruments (own funds versus eligible liabilities) with which they fund the acquisition of ownership of internal MREL eligible resources. This would allow intermediate parents to completely avoid any own funds related deductions as long as they have issued sufficient eligible liabilities. The deductions should therefore first be applied to the eligible liabilities items of the intermediate parents. Where the intermediate entity is required to comply with internal MREL pursuant to Directive 2014/59/EU on an individual basis, the deductions should be applied to the eligible liabilities meeting the conditions of Article 45f(2) of that Directive. In case the amount to be deducted would exceed the amount of the eligible liabilities items of the intermediate parents, the remaining amount should be deducted from their Common Equity Tier 1, Additional Tier 1 and Tier 2 items, starting with Tier 2 items in accordance with Article 66, point (e), of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. In such a case, it is necessary that the deductions corresponding to the remaining amount are also applied when calculating own funds for the purposes of the requirements laid down in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and Directive 2013/36/EU1a. Otherwise, the solvency ratios of intermediate entities that have issued own funds instruments, rather than eligible liabilities instruments, to fund the acquisition of ownership of internal MREL eligible resources may be overstated. Additionally, by keeping the treatment of holdings of internal MREL eligible resources aligned for prudential and resolution purposes, an undue increase in complexity is avoided, as institutions would be able to continue to calculate, report and disclose one set of total risk exposure amount and total exposure measure for prudential and resolution purposes. Article 49(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 should thus be amended accordingly. To further enhance the proportionality of the deduction regime, that regime should not be applicable in the exceptional cases where, pursuant to Articles 45f(1), third subparagraph, and 45f(4) of Directive 2014/59/EU, internal MREL is applied on a consolidated basis only, in what concerns the holdings of internal MREL eligible resources issued by entities included in the perimeter of consolidation. The same exception should apply when the requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities for material subsidiaries of non-EU G-SIIs laid down in Article 92b of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 is complied with on a consolidated basis, pursuant to Article 11(3a) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

    (8) The indirect subscription of internal MREL eligible instruments should ensure that, when a subsidiary reaches the point of non-viability, losses are effectively passed on to, and the subsidiary concerned is recapitalised by, the resolution entity. Those losses should thus not be absorbed by the intermediate parent, which should become a mere vehicle to pass through those losses to the resolution entity. Consequently, and to ensure that the outcome of the indirect subscription is equivalent to that of a full direct subscription, as envisaged under the mandate set out in Article 45f(6) of Directive 2014/59/EU, the deducted exposures should receive a 0 % risk weight for the calculation of the total risk exposure amount and be excluded from the calculation of the total exposure measure. This treatment of not applying risk weights and excluding those exposures from the total exposure measure should be strictly limited to exposures that are deducted in accordance to Article 72e(5), first subparagraph, for the sake of operationalising the approach of indirect subscription of internal MREL eligible instruments.

    (8a) The templates for the public disclosure of harmonised information on the minimum requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities and on the requirement for own funds and eligible liabilities for material subsidiaries of non-EU G-SIIs set out in Commission Implementing Regulation(EU) 2021/7631a should be amended to reflect the new deduction regime for internal MREL eligible instruments. The disclosure templates should also be amended to include the total risk exposure amount and the total exposure measure that intermediate entities would have if they did not exclude the exposures deducted under that new deduction regime.

    (9) Since the objectives of this Regulation, namely to fully harmonise the prudential treatment of the holdings by intermediate parents of internal MREL eligible resources of their subsidiaries and to revise in a targeted manner the requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities for G-SIIs and for material subsidiaries of non-EU G-SIIs, cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States and can therefore, by reason of the scale of the action, be better achieved at Union level, the Union may adopt measures, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 of the Treaty on European Union. In accordance with the principle of proportionality, as set out in that Article, this Regulation does not go beyond what is necessary in order to achieve those objectives.

    (9a) In order to duly assess potential unintended consequences of the indirect subscription of instruments eligible for internal MRE including the new deduction regime, and to ensure a proportionate treatment for different types of banking group structures, among others institutions that have an operating company between the holding company and its subsidiaries, and for entities whose resolution plan provides for their winding up under normal insolvency proceedings in case of failure, and a level playing field between different types of banking group structures, in particular groups headed by holding companies that may be particularly affected by the new rules, the Commission should review the implementation of the indirect subscription of internal MREL eligible resources by the different types of banking group structures as soon as possible but not later than by 31 December 2022.

    (10) To ensure that institutions have sufficient time to implement the dedicated treatment for the indirect subscription of ▌internal MREL eligible resources, including the new deduction regime and that markets can digest additional issuances of internal MREL eligible resources, where needed, the provisions laying down that treatment should become applicable on 1 January 2024, in line with the deadline for compliance with the final MREL requirements.

    (11) Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and Directive 2014/59/EU should therefore be amended accordingly,

    HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

That adjusted amount shall be at least equal to the amount (m) calculated as follows:

    mi = max{0; OPi + LPi – max{0; β · [Oi + Li – max{ri · aRWAi; wi ·aLREi}]}}

    Where the parent institution is allowed to deduct the adjusted amount in accordance with the first subparagraph, the difference between the amount of holdings of own funds instruments and eligible liabilities instruments referred to in the first subparagraph and that adjusted amount shall be deducted by the subsidiary.’;

    (aa) In Article 72e, the following paragraph is inserted:

    ‘(4a) By way of derogation from paragraph 4 and until 31 December 2024 the resolution authority of a parent institution, after duly considering the opinion of the resolution authorities or relevant third-country authorities of any subsidiaries concerned, may permit that the adjusted amount mi is calculated by using the following definition of ri, and wi:

    (b) the relevant third-country authority of the subsidiary has provided an opinion to the resolution authority of the parent institution that assets equal to the amount to be deducted by the subsidiary in accordance with Article 72e(4), second paragraph, could be transferred from the subsidiary to the parent institution.’;

     

    (b) the following paragraph is added:

    ‘5. Institutions and entities ▌ shall deduct from eligible liabilities items their holdings of own funds instruments and eligible liabilities instruments where all of the following conditionsare met:

    When calculating the limit referred to in the second subparagraph, direct issuances of own funds instruments and eligible liabilities instruments from an institution or entity referred to in point (c) of the first subparagraph to the relevant resolution entity shall be accounted for first, and shall reduce the amount required to be deducted under the first sub-paragraph by the amount of own funds instruments and eligible liabilities instruments already directly issued.

    By way of derogation from the first subparagraph, holdings of own funds instruments and eligible liabilities instruments shall not be deducted where the institution or entity referred to in point (a) is required to comply with the requirement referred to in point (b) on a consolidated basis and the institution or entity referred to in point (c) is included in the consolidation of the institution or entity referred to in point (a) in accordance with Part One, Title II, Chapter 2.

The application of risk weights shall be based on the exposure class to which the exposure is assigned and, to the extent specified in Section 2, its credit quality. Credit quality may be determined by reference to the credit assessments of ECAIs or the credit assessments of export credit agencies in accordance with Section 3.’;

    (8) in Article 151, paragraph 1 is replaced by the following:

    ‘1. The risk-weighted exposure amounts for credit risk for exposures belonging to one of the exposure classes referred to in Article 147(2), points (a) to (e) and point (g), shall, unless the exposures are deducted from own funds or eligible liabilities subject to the treatment set out in Article 72e(5), first subparagraph, be calculated in accordance with Sub-section 2.’;

    (2) In Article 45f, paragraph 6 is deleted.

     

    (3) In Article 45h, paragraph 2 is replaced by the following:

     

    ‘2.  Where more than one G-SII entity belonging to the same G-SII are resolution entities or third-country entities that would be resolution entities if they were established in the Union, the resolution authorities referred to in paragraph 1 shall discuss and, where appropriate and consistent with the G-SII’s resolution strategy, agree on the application of Article 72e of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and any adjustment to minimise or eliminate the difference between the sum of the amounts referred to in of Article 45d(4), point (a), and Article 12a, point (a), of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 for individual resolution entities or third-country entities and the sum of the amounts referred to in Article 45d(4), point (b), and Article 12a, point (b), of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.
