NewTransparency Requirements and the Preferential Risk Weighting for Covered Bonds


New regulatory requirements create not only added effort but in some cases also room for interpretation. And it therefore comes as no surprise that the new EU transparency requirements for covered bonds have become a topic of discussion. Since entry into force on 1 January 2014 of Regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No. 648/2012 (Capital Requirement Regulation, or CRR), the new prerequisites apply to preferential treatment of covered bonds with regard to own funds. The requirements set forth in Article 129 CRR concerning preferential treatment of covered bonds include, inter alia, newly adopted transparency requirements.

The following article reflects on the Pfandbrief Banks' position.
