GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

1.   STRUCTURE AND CONVENTIONS

1.1.   Structure

1. The framework consists of five sets of templates which comprise a total of nine templates according to the following scheme:

(a) 

Part A: Encumbrance overview:

— 
AE-ASS template. Assets of the reporting institution
— 
AE-COL template. Collateral received by the reporting institution
— 
AE-NPL. Own covered bonds and asset-backed securities (hereinafter ‘ABS’) issued and not yet pledged
— 
AE-SOU. Sources of encumbrance
(b) 

Part B: Maturity data:

— 
AE-MAT template. Maturity data
(c) 

Part C: Contingent encumbrance

— 
AE-CONT template. Contingent encumbrance
(d) 

Part D: Covered bonds

— 
AE-CB template. Covered bonds issuance
(e) 

Part E: Advanced data:

— 
AE-ADV-1 template. Advanced template for assets of the reporting institution
— 
AE-ADV-2 template. Advanced template for collateral received by the reporting institution

2. For each template legal references are provided as well as further detailed information regarding more general aspects of the reporting.

1.2.   Accounting standard

3. Institutions shall report carrying amounts under the accounting framework they use for the reporting of financial information in accordance with Articles 9 to 11. Institutions that are not required to report financial information shall use their respective accounting framework.

4. For the purposes of this Annex, ‘IAS’ and ‘IFRS’ refer to the international accounting standards as defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002. For institutions which report under IFRS standards, references have been inserted to the relevant IFRS standards.

1.3.   Numbering convention

5. The following general notation is used in these instructions to refer to the columns, rows and cells of a template: {Template; Row; Column}. An asterisk sign is used to indicate that the validation is applied to the whole row or column. For example {AE-ASS; *; 2} refers to the data point of any row for column 2 of the AE-ASS template.

6. In the case of validations within a template the following notation is used to refer to data points from that template: {Row; Column}.

1.4.   Sign convention

7. Templates in Annex XVI shall follow the sign convention described in paragraphs 9 and 10 of Part I of Annex V.

1.5.   Level of application

8. The level of application of the reporting on asset encumbrance follows that of the reporting requirements on own funds under the first subparagraph of Article 99(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR). Consequently, institutions that are not subject to prudential requirements in accordance with Article 7 of CRR are not required to report information on asset encumbrance.

1.6.   Proportionality

9. For the purpose of Article 16a(2)(b), the asset encumbrance level shall be calculated as follows:

— 
Carrying amount of encumbered assets and collateral = {AE-ASS;010;010} + {AE-COL;130;010}.
— 
Total assets and collateral = {AE-ASS;010;010} + {AE-ASS;010;060} + {AE-COL;130;010} + {AE-COL;130;040}.
— 
Asset encumbrance ratio = (Carrying amount of encumbered assets and collateral)/(Total assets and collateral)

10. For the purpose of Article 16a(2)(a), the sum of total assets shall be calculated as follows:

— 
Total assets = {AE-ASS;010;010} + {AE-ASS;010;060}

1.7.   Definition of encumbrance

11. For the purpose of this Annex and Annex XVI, an asset shall be treated as encumbered if it has been pledged or if it is subject to any form of arrangement to secure, collateralise or credit enhance any transaction from which it cannot be freely withdrawn.

It is important to note, that assets pledged that are subject to any restrictions in withdrawal, such as for instance assets that require prior approval before withdrawal or replacement by other assets, should be considered encumbered. The definition is not based on an explicit legal definition, such as title transfer, but rather on economic principles, as the legal frameworks may differ in this respect across countries. The definition is however closely linked to contractual conditions. The EBA sees the following types of contracts being well covered by the definition (this is a non-exhaustive list):

— 
secured financing transactions, including repurchase contracts and agreements, securities lending and other forms of secured lending;
— 
various collateral agreements, for instance collateral placed for the market value of derivatives transactions;
— 
financial guarantees that are collateralised. It should be noted, that if there is no impediment to withdrawal of collateral, such as prior approval, for the unused part of guarantee, then only the used amount should be allocated (on a pro-rata allocation);
— 
collateral placed at clearing systems, CCPs and other infrastructure institutions as a condition for access to service. This includes default funds and initial margins;
— 
central bank facilities. Pre-positioned assets should not be considered encumbered, unless the central bank does not allow withdrawal of any assets placed without prior approval. As for unused financial guarantees, the unused part, i.e. above the minimum amount required by the central bank, should be allocated on a pro-rata basis among the assets placed at the central bank;
— 
underlying assets from securitisation structures, where the financial assets have not been de-recognised from the institution's financial assets. The assets that are underlying retained securities do not count as encumbered, unless these securities are pledged or provided as collateral in any way to secure a transaction;
— 
assets in cover pools used for covered bond issuance. The assets that are underlying covered bonds count as encumbered, except in certain situations where the institution holds the corresponding covered bonds (‘own-issued bonds’);
— 
as a general principle, assets which are being placed at facilities that are not used and can be freely withdrawn should not be considered encumbered.

TEMPLATE-RELATED INSTRUCTIONS

2.   PART A: ENCUMBRANCE OVERVIEW

12. The encumbrance overview templates differentiate assets which are used to support funding or collateral needs at the balance sheet date (‘point-in time encumbrance’) from those assets which are available for potential funding needs.

13. The overview template shows the amount of encumbered and non-encumbered assets of the reporting institution in a tabular format by products. The same breakdown also applies to collateral received and own debt securities issued other than covered bonds and securitisations.

2.1.   Template: AE-ASS. Assets of the reporting institution

2.1.1.   General remarks

14. This paragraph sets out instructions that apply to the main types of transaction that are relevant when completing the AE templates:

All transactions that increase the level of encumbrance of an institution have two aspects that shall be reported independently throughout the AE templates. Such transactions shall be reported both as a source of encumbrance and as an encumbered asset or collateral.

The following examples describe how to report a type of transaction of this Part but the same rules apply to the other AE templates.

(a)    Collateralised deposit

A collateralised deposit is reported as follows:

(i) 

the carrying amount of the deposit is registered as a source of encumbrance in {AE-SOU; r070; c010};

(ii) 

where the collateral is an asset of the reporting institution: its carrying amount is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c010} and {AE-SOU; r070; c030}; its fair value is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c040};

(iii) 

where the collateral has been received by the reporting institution, its fair value is reported in {AE-COL; *; c010}, {AE-SOU; r070; c030} and {AE-SOU; r070; c040}.

(b)    Repo/matching repos

A repurchase agreement (hereinafter ‘repo’) is reported as follows:

(i) 

the carrying amount of the repo is reported as a source of encumbrance in {AE-SOU; r050; c010};

(ii) 

the collateral of the repo should be shown:

(iii) 

where the collateral is an asset of the reporting institution: its carrying amount is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c010} and {AE-SOU; r050; c030}; its fair value is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c040};

(iv) 

where the collateral has been received by the reporting institution through a previous reverse repurchase agreement (matching repo), its fair value is reported in {AE-COL; *; c010}, {AE-SOU; r050; c030} and in {AE-SOU; r050; c040}.

(c)    Central bank funding

As collateralised central bank funding is only a specific case of a collateralised deposit or a repo transaction in which the counterparty is a central bank, the rules in i) and ii) above apply.

For operations where it is not possible to identify the specific collateral to each operation, as collateral is pooled together, the collateral breakdown must be done on a proportional basis, based on the composition of the pool of collateral.

Assets that have been pre-positioned with central banks are not encumbered assets unless the central bank does not allow withdrawal of any assets placed without prior approval. For unused financial guarantees, the unused part, i.e. the amount above the minimum required by the central bank, is allocated on a pro-rata basis among the assets placed at the central bank.

(d)    Securities lending

For securities lending with cash collateral the rules for repos/matching repos apply.

Securities lending without cash collateral is reported as follows:

(i) 

the fair value of the securities borrowed is reported as a source of encumbrance in {AE-SOU; r150; c010}. When the lender does not receive any securities in return for the securities lent but receives a fee instead, {AE-SOU; r150; c010} is reported as zero;

(ii) 

where the securities lent as collateral are an asset of the reporting institution: their carrying amount is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c010} and {AE-SOU; r150; c030}; their fair value is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c040};

(iii) 

where the securities lent as collateral are received by the reporting institution, their fair value is reported in {AE-COL; *; c010}, {AE-SOU; r150; c030} and {AE-SOU; r150; c040}.

(e)    Derivatives (liabilities)

Collateralised derivatives with a negative fair value are reported as follows:

(i) 

the carrying amount of the derivative is reported as a source of encumbrance in {AE-SOU; r020; c010};

(ii) 

the collateral (initial margins required to open the position and any collateral placed for the market value of derivatives transactions) are reported as follows:

(i) 

where it is an asset of the reporting institution: its carrying amount is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c010} and {AE-SOU; r020; c030}; its fair value is reported in {AE-ASS; *; c040};

(ii) 

where it is collateral received by the reporting institution, its fair value is reported in {AE-COL; *; c010}, {AE-SOU; r020; c030} and {AE-SOU; r020; c040}.

(f)    Covered bonds

Covered bonds for the entire asset encumbrance reporting are instruments referred to in the first subparagraph of Article 52(4) of the Directive 2009/65/EU, irrespective of whether these instruments take the legal form of a security or not.

No specific rules apply to covered bonds where there is no retention of part of the securities issued by the reporting institution.

In case of retention of part of the issuance and in order to avoid double counting, the proposed treatment below shall apply:

(i) 

where the own covered bonds are not pledged, the amount of the cover pool that is backing those securities retained and not yet pledged is reported in the AE-ASS templates as non-encumbered assets. Additional information about the retained covered bonds not yet pledged (underlying assets, fair value and eligibility of those available for encumbrance and nominal of those non-available for encumbrance) is reported in the AE-NPL template;

(ii) 

where the own covered bonds are pledged, then the amount of the cover pool that is backing those securities retained and pledged is included in the AE-ASS template as encumbered assets.

The following table sets out how to report covered bond issuance of EUR 100 of which 15 % is retained and not pledged and 10 % is retained and pledged as collateral in a EUR 11 repo transaction with a central bank, where the cover pool comprises unsecured loans and the carrying amount of the loans is EUR 150.

(g)    Securitisations

Securitisations mean debt securities held by the reporting institution originated in a securitisation transaction as defined in Article 4(61) of CRR.

For securitisations that remain in the balance sheet (non-derecognised), the rules for covered bonds apply.

For derecognised securitisations, there is no encumbrance where the institution holds some securities. Those securities will appear in the trading book or in the banking book of the reporting institutions as any other security issued by a third party.

2.2.   Template: AE-COL. Collateral received by the reporting institution

2.2.1.   General remarks

15. For the collateral received by the reporting institution and the own debt securities issued other than own covered bonds or ABSs, the category of ‘non-encumbered’ assets is split between those ‘available for encumbrance’ or potentially eligible to be encumbered and those ‘non-available for encumbrance’.

16. Assets are ‘non-available for encumbrance’ when they have been received as collateral and the reporting institution is not permitted to sell or re-pledge the collateral, except in the case of a default by the owner of the collateral. Own debt securities issued other than own covered bonds or securitisations are non-available for encumbrance when there is any restriction in the terms of the issuance to sell or re-pledge the securities held.

17. For the purpose of the asset encumbrance reporting, securities borrowed in exchange for a fee without providing cash-collateral or non-cash collateral are reported as collateral received.

Own debt securities issued other than own covered bonds or ABSs

Own debt securities issued retained by the reporting institution that are not own covered bonds issued or own securitisations issued. As the retained or repurchased own debt securities issued, according to IAS 39.42, decrease the relating financial liabilities, these securities are not included in the category of assets of the reporting institution (row 010 of the AE-ASS template). Own debt securities that may not be derecognised from the balance sheet by a non-IFRS institution shall be included in this row.

Own covered bonds issued or own securitisations issued are not reported in this category since different rules apply to those cases to avoid double counting:

(a)  where the own debt securities are pledged, the amount of the cover pool/underlying assets that are backing those securities retained and pledged is reported in the AE-ASS template as encumbered assets;

(b)  where the own debt securities are not yet pledged, the amount of the cover pool/underlying assets that are backing those securities retained and not yet pledged is reported in the AE-ASS templates as non-encumbered assets. Additional information about this second type of own debt securities not yet pledged (underlying assets, fair value and eligibility of those available for encumbrance and nominal of those non-available for encumbrance) is reported in the AE-NPL template.

4.   PART C: CONTINGENT ENCUMBRANCE

4.1.   General remarks

22. This template requires institutions to calculate the level of asset encumbrance in a number of stressed scenarios.

23. Contingent encumbrance refers to the additional assets which may need to be encumbered when the reporting institutions faces adverse developments triggered by an external event over which the reporting institution has no control (including a downgrade, decrease of the fair value of the encumbered assets or a general loss of confidence). In these cases, the reporting institution will need to encumber additional assets as a consequence of already existing transactions. The additional amount of encumbered assets shall be net of the impact of the institution's hedge transactions against the events described under the aforementioned stressed scenarios.

24. This template includes the following two scenarios for reporting contingent encumbrance which are set out in more detail in points 4.1.1. and 4.1.2. The information reported shall be the institution's reasonable estimate based on the best available information.

(a) 

Decrease of the fair value of the encumbered assets by 30 %. This scenario only covers a change in the underlying fair value of the assets, and not any other change which may affect its carrying amount such as foreign exchange gains or losses or potential impairment. The reporting institution may then be forced to post more collateral in order to keep the value of the collateral constant.

(b) 

A 10 % depreciation in each currency in which the institution has aggregate liabilities amounting to or exceeding 5 % of the institution's total liabilities.

25. The scenarios shall be reported independently of each other, and significant currency depreciations shall also be reported independently of depreciations of other significant currencies. Consequently institutions shall not take correlations between the scenarios into account.

4.1.1.   Scenario A: Decrease of 30 % of encumbered assets

26. It shall be assumed that all encumbered assets decrease 30 % in value. The need of additional collateral arising from such a decrease shall take into account existing levels of over-collateralisation, such that only the minimum collateralisation level is maintained. The need of additional collateral shall also take into account the contractual requirements of the contracts and agreements impacted, including threshold triggers.

27. Only contracts and agreements, where there is a legal obligation to supply additional collateral shall be included. This includes covered bond issues where there is a legal requirement to uphold minimum levels of over collateralisation but no requirement to maintain existing rating levels on the covered bond.

4.1.2.   Scenario B: Depreciation of 10 % in significant currencies

28. A currency is a significant currency if the reporting institution has aggregate liabilities in that currency amounting to or exceeding 5 % of the institution's total liabilities

29. The calculation of a 10 % depreciation shall take into account both changes on the asset and liability side, i.e. focus the asset-liability mismatches. For instance a repo transactions in USD based on USD assets does not cause additional encumbrance, whereas a repo transaction in USD based on a EUR asset causes additional encumbrance.

30. All transactions which have a cross-currency element shall be covered by this calculation.

5.   PART D: COVERED BONDS

5.1.   General remarks

32. The information in this template is reported for all UCITS-compliant covered bonds issued by the reporting institution. UCITS-compliant covered bonds are the bonds referred to in the first subparagraph of Article 52(4) of Directive 2009/65/EC. These are covered bonds issued by the reporting institution if the reporting institution is in relation to the covered bond subject by law to special public supervision designed to protect bond-holders and if for such covered bond it is required that sums deriving from the issue of those bonds shall be invested in accordance with the law in assets which, during the whole period of validity of the bonds, are capable of covering claims attaching to the bonds and which, in the event of failure of the issuer, would be used on a priority basis for the reimbursement of the principal and payment of the accrued interest.

33. Covered bonds issued by or on behalf of the reporting institution that are not UCITS-compliant covered bonds shall not be reported within the AE-CB templates.

34. The reporting shall be based on the statutory covered bond regime, i.e. the legal framework which applies the to the covered bond programme.

Central bank funding (of all types, including repos)

All types of liabilities of the reporting institution in which the counterparty of the transaction is a central bank.

Assets that have been pre-positioned with central banks shall not be treated as encumbered assets unless the central bank does not allow withdrawal of any asset placed without prior approval. For unused financial guarantees, the unused part, i.e., the amount above the minimum required by the central bank, shall be allocated on a pro-rata basis among the assets placed at the central bank.

030-040

Exchanged traded derivatives

Carrying amount of the collateralised derivatives of the reporting institution that are financial liabilities, insofar as these derivatives are listed or traded on a recognised or designated investment exchange and they entail asset encumbrance for that institution.

050-060

Over-the counter derivatives

Carrying amount of the collateralised derivatives of the reporting institution that are financial liabilities, insofar as these derivatives are traded over-the-counter and they entail asset encumbrance for that institution. (Same instruction in row 030 of the AE-SOU template)

070-080

Repurchase agreements

Carrying amount of the repurchase agreements of the reporting institution in which the counterparty of the transaction is not a central bank, insofar as these transactions entail asset encumbrance for that institution.

090-100

Collateralised deposits other than repurchase agreements

Carrying amount of the collateralised deposits other than repurchase agreements of the reporting institution in which the counterparty of the transaction is not a central bank, insofar as these deposits entail asset encumbrance for that institution.

150-160

Debt securities issued other than covered bonds and ABSs

In the event that the reporting institution had retained some of the debt securities issued, either from the issuance date or thereafter as a result of a repurchase, these retained securities should not be included under this item. Additionally, the collateral assigned to them should be classified as non-encumbered for the purpose of this template.
