Implementing PRA CP4/23 - The Strong and Simple Framework: Liquidity and Disclosure requirements for Simpler-regime Firms

The PRA has published a Consultation Paper describing the first stage of its intended “strong and simple” framework of regulatory guidance for smaller UK banks and building societies. This regime is expected to result in a materially less onerous yet robust capital and liquidity risk management framework for banks that are not systemically important.

In this seminar The BTRM will be presenting a summary of the Consultation Paper and what its proposals will mean for simpler-regime banks. We will highlight:

  • the new “streamlined” ILAAP template
  • changes to the NSFR framework and the new reporting metric, the Retail Deposits Ratio
  • implications for Pillar 2 liquidity
  • the simplified liquidity monitoring requirements
  • implications for Pillar 3 Disclosures

The seminar will conclude with a Q&A session with the speaker and other members of the esteemed BTRM Faculty.
