Financial Stability Board Discusses Financial Resources for CCP Resolution
11/15/2018The Financial Stability Board has published a discussion paper on financial resources to support CCP resolution and the treatment of CCP equity in resolution. The FSB considers that further evidenced-based guidance is needed on this topic and the discussion paper is the first step in developing such guidance by the end of 2020. The FSB intends to use the practical experience of resolution planning that resolution authorities and Crisis Management Groups have gained to develop the guidance. The discussion paper outlines: (i) relevant considerations for evaluating whether a CCP's existing financial resources and tools are satisfactory for implementing the individual CCPs' resolution strategy, including a proposed five-step process and CCP-specific factors that warrant assessment; and (ii) factors that could steer authorities in their approaches to the treatment of CCP equity in resolution, including consideration of whether different ownership structures are relevant.
Responses to the discussion paper should be submitted by February 1, 2019. The FSB notes that responses to the discussion paper will be used to develop proposed guidance which will be consulted on at the appropriate time.
