Concentration of Counterbalancing Capacity by issuer/counterparty (CCC) (C 71.00)

1. In order to collect information about the reporting institutions’ concentration of counterbalancing capacity by the ten largest holdings of assets or liquidity lines granted to the institution for this purpose under template C 71.00, institutions shall apply the instructions contained in this Annex.

2. Where an issuer or counterparty is assigned to more than one product type, currency or credit quality step, the total amount shall be reported. The product type, currency or credit quality step to be reported shall be the ones that are relevant to the largest proportion of the counterbalancing capacity concentration.

3. The counterbalancing capacity in C 71.00 shall be the same as that in C 66.01 with the qualification that the assets reported as counterbalancing capacity for the purposes of C 71.00 shall be unencumbered to be available for the institution to convert into cash on the reporting reference date.

4. For calculating the concentrations for the purpose of reporting template C 71.00 by significant currency, institutions shall use the concentrations in all currencies.

5. When an issuer or counterparty belongs to several groups of connected clients, it shall be reported only once in the group with the higher counterbalancing capacity concentration.

6. Except for row 0120, concentrations of counterbalancing capacity with a central bank as issuer or counterparty shall not be reported in this template. In the event that an institution has pre-positioned assets at a central bank for standard liquidity operations and to the extent that these assets fall under the top ten issuers or counterparties of unencumbered counterbalancing capacity, the institution shall report the original issuer and the original product type.
