Public Disclosure

Objective and key requirements of this Prudential Standard
 
This Prudential Standard requires a locally incorporated authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) to meet minimum requirements for the public disclosure of information on its capital, risk exposures, remuneration practices and, where applicable, its leverage ratio, liquidity coverage ratio and indicators for the identification of potential global systemically important banks, so as to contribute to the transparency of financial markets and to enhance market discipline.
 
The key requirements of this Prudential Standard are that an ADI must disclose:
·                the composition of its regulatory capital in a standard form;
·                a reconciliation between the composition of its regulatory capital and its audited financial statements;
·                the full terms and conditions of its regulatory capital instruments and the main features of these instruments in a standard form;
·                quantitative and qualitative information about its capital adequacy, credit and other risks, with the extent of disclosure dependent on whether it has approval to use ‘advanced approaches’ to measure credit risk and operational risk;
·                where applicable, quantitative and qualitative information on its liquidity coverage ratio;
·                where applicable, quantitative and qualitative information about its leverage ratio;
·                quantitative and qualitative information on its approach to remuneration, including aggregate information on its remuneration of senior managers and material risk-takers; and
·                where applicable, quantitative information on the global systemically important banks indicators.

Liquidity Coverage Ratio disclosures
18.         An ADI classified as an LCR ADI[1] for the purposes of APS 210 must make the LCR disclosures required in Attachment F.
19.         An LCR ADI must provide sufficient qualitative discussion to facilitate users’ understanding of the LCR disclosures required in Attachment F. This may include discussion of:

Disclosures for the identification of potential G-SIBs
22.         If required by APRA, an ADI must make the disclosures for the identification of potential G-SIBs in Attachment H[2].
General requirements
23.         If APRA is not satisfied that the adequacy or quality of an ADI’s prudential disclosures is consistent with the principles set out in paragraphs 7 and 8 above or the requirements in paragraph 28 below, APRA may require the ADI to rectify the disclosures or to disclose further information. 
24.         APRA may require an ADI whose risk management practices, capital adequacy position, LCR position, leverage ratio or remuneration practices have changed materially, or are subject to ongoing rapid change, to vary the content and/or frequency of its prudential disclosures.
25.         APRA may require a foreign-owned ADI that has IRB and/or AMA approval to increase the content and/or frequency of its prudential disclosures, taking account of:
(a)           the significance of the ADI in the context of the Australian financial system;
(b)          the significance of the ADI in its global banking group; and
(c)           the quality of the disclosure of capital adequacy information by the overseas parent in its home jurisdiction.
Disclosure policy
26.         An ADI must have a formal policy relating to its prudential disclosures approved by the Board that addresses the ADI’s approach to determining the content of its prudential disclosures and the internal controls over the disclosure process.
27.         An ADI must implement a process for assessing the appropriateness and accuracy of its prudential disclosures, including their validation and frequency. This must be summarised in the ADI’s prudential disclosures policy.
28.         An ADI must take reasonable steps to ensure that its prudential disclosures reflect its actual risk profile and are consistent with the manner in which its Board and senior management assess and manage its risks. Where the minimum requirements for prudential disclosures set out in this Prudential Standard do not adequately capture this, the ADI must disclose additional information.
Verification of disclosures
29.         An ADI must ensure that prudential disclosures are appropriately verified and must take steps necessary to ensure their reliability.
30.         An ADI must ensure that its prudential disclosures are consistent with information that has been subject to review by an external auditor and that is lodged or published elsewhere or that has been already supplied to APRA.
31.         APRA may require an ADI to commission an independent audit of its prudential disclosures. This may include where APRA has reason to believe that the information being disclosed is incorrect or misleading.
Medium of disclosures
32.         An ADI that has its own website must include a ‘Regulatory Disclosures’ section on its website.
33.         If:
(a)           for paragraphs 34 and 35 below, an ADI is not required to lodge a financial report or directors’ report under the Corporations Act; or
(b)          for paragraphs 34, 35 and 36 below, an ADI does not have its own website,
the ADI must obtain APRA’s approval for alternative publication arrangements.
34.         The disclosures required in Attachment A, the Regulatory Capital reconciliation and, if applicable, Attachment E[3] and/or Attachment F must be included in:
(a)           an ADI’s financial report; or
(b)          an ADI’s directors’ report; or
(c)           other information accompanying an ADI’s financial report; or
(d)          the Regulatory Disclosures section on the ADI’s website, provided that the financial report, directors’ report or other information accompanying the financial report includes a link to these completed disclosures[4].
35.         The disclosures required in Attachment B and the full terms and conditions of Regulatory Capital instruments must be published in full in the Regulatory Disclosures section on an ADI’s website. They must also be published in full, or a link to the disclosures on the Regulatory Disclosures section of the ADI’s website must be included in:
(a)           an ADI’s financial report; or
(b)          an ADI’s director’s report; or
(c)           other information accompanying an ADI’s financial report.
36.         The disclosures required in Attachments C, D and G must be published in full in the Regulatory Disclosures section on an ADI’s website[5].
37.         If an ADI is required to prepare and lodge a ‘Remuneration report’ in accordance with the Corporations Act, it may include its remuneration disclosures in that report provided it clearly distinguishes between the disclosures required under the Corporations Act and those required under this Prudential Standard.
38.         If applicable, the disclosures required in Attachment H must be included in:
(a)           an ADI’s annual financial report; or
(b)          the Regulatory Disclosures section on an ADI’s website, provided that the ADI includes a direct link to the published disclosures on its website in the first annual financial report lodged under the Corporations Act after the date the disclosures are published on the ADI’s website.
Frequency and timing of disclosures
39.         If:
(a)           for the purposes of paragraphs 40, 41, 43 and 46 below, an ADI is not required to lodge financial reports under the Corporations Act; or
(b)          for the purposes of paragraph 49 and 51 below, an ADI is not required to lodge an annual financial report under the Corporations Act,
the ADI must obtain APRA’s approval for alternative timing for the disclosures.
40.         The disclosures required in Attachment A, the Regulatory Capital reconciliation and, if applicable, Attachment E and /or Attachment F must be made as at the balance sheet date of the corresponding financial report. The disclosures must be made with the same frequency as, and concurrent with, the lodgement of the ADI’s financial reports under the Corporations Act[6].
41.         The disclosures required in Attachment B and the full terms and conditions of Regulatory Capital instruments must be published continuously. The disclosures must be updated within seven calendar days if the following occurs:
(a)           a new capital instrument is issued and included in Regulatory Capital; or
(b)          a capital instrument is redeemed, converted into Common Equity Tier 1 Capital, written off or otherwise changes in nature.
42.         The disclosures required in Attachment C must be published on a quarterly basis. For comparison purposes, all disclosures in Attachment C (except for the initial disclosures) must be published together with the immediately preceding disclosures for Attachment C.
43.         The disclosures in Attachment C must be published:
(a)           concurrently with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial reports under the Corporations Act[7]; and
(b)          for any quarterly period that does not coincide with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial report under the Corporations Act, within 40 business days after the end of the period to which they relate.
44.         The qualitative disclosures required in Attachment D must be published on an annual basis.
45.         The quantitative disclosures required in Attachment D must be published on a semi-annual basis. For comparison purposes, all quantitative disclosures for Attachment D (except initial disclosures) must be published together with the immediately preceding quantitative disclosures for Attachment D.
46.         The disclosures in Attachment D must be made concurrently with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial reports under the Corporations Act[8]. 
47.         If required under paragraph 17, in addition to the requirements in paragraph 40, an IRB ADI must make the following quantitative disclosures required in Attachment E on a quarterly basis, commencing no later than three months after the commencement of this Prudential Standard:
(a)           Tier 1 Capital (refer to item 20 in Table 18);
(b)          Total exposures (refer to item 21 in Table 18); and
(c)           leverage ratio (refer to item 22 in Table 18)[9].
48.         The disclosures required to be made under paragraph 47 must be published together with the figures for the three previous quarterly periods[10]. For any quarterly period that does not coincide with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial report under the Corporations Act, the disclosures must be published within 40 business days after the end of the period to which they relate.
49.         The remuneration disclosures required in Attachment G must be published with the same frequency as, and within three months of lodgement of, the ADI’s annual financial report under the Corporations Act[11].
50.         After the initial remuneration disclosure, all subsequent quantitative remuneration disclosures must be published together with the quantitative remuneration disclosures for the previous annual period in accordance with the provisions in this Prudential Standard.
51.         If required under paragraph 22, an ADI must:
(a)           make the disclosures in Attachment H as at the balance sheet date of the corresponding annual financial report[12]; and
(b)          publish these disclosures not later than 31 July following the balance sheet date on which the disclosures are based.
52.         The requirements for the frequency and timing of disclosures in paragraphs 40 to 51 are summarised in Attachment I.  
Non-regulatory ratios
53.         If an ADI publishes capital adequacy ratios:
(a)           that are calculated other than in accordance with APS 110; or
(b)          that involve components of Regulatory Capital that are not defined in APS 111 (including terms such as ‘Equity Tier 1’, ‘Core Tier 1’ or ‘Tangible Common Equity’),
such publication must include a comprehensive explanation of how these ratios are calculated and details of the elements of capital used. This requirement applies regardless of whether the capital ratios are prudential disclosures made in accordance with this Prudential Standard.
Public availability of disclosures
54.         Irrespective of the medium of publication, an ADI must make publicly available its prudential disclosures for a minimum period of 12 months.
Materiality
55.         An ADI, in making a disclosure, must decide which prudential disclosures are material. An ADI is not required to make a prudential disclosure if it considers the matter to be disclosed to be immaterial. Information is regarded as material if its omission or misstatement could change or influence the assessment or decision of a user relying on that information for the purpose of making economic decisions. More generally, an ADI must have regard to materiality as applied in the context of its other public disclosures (for instance, as required under the Corporations Act).
Proprietary, confidential and personal information
56.         Proprietary information encompasses information that, if shared with competitors, would render an ADI’s investment in its products/systems less valuable by undermining its competitive position. Confidential information is that which an ADI possesses about customers or other persons that is confidential, being provided under the terms of a legal agreement or counterparty relationship. Personal information is as defined in the Privacy Act 1988.
57.         Disclosure of certain items of information required by this Prudential Standard may prejudice the position of an ADI or any other person by making public information that is proprietary, confidential or personal in nature. In such circumstances, the ADI may elect not to disclose this information and to instead disclose more general information about the subject matter of the requirement, together with the fact that, and the reason why, the specific items of information have not been disclosed. Under paragraph 23 above, APRA may require the ADI to rectify the disclosures or to disclose further information if APRA is not satisfied with the adequacy or quality of the disclosures. 
Adjustments and exclusions
58.         APRA may, by notice, adjust or exclude a specific prudential requirement in this Prudential Standard in relation to an ADI[13].

Guidelines for the capital disclosure template
 
3.             In completing Table 1, an ADI must have regard to the following Table 1A, which sets out an explanation of each row of Table 1. An ADI must report deductions from capital as positive numbers and additions to capital as negative numbers. For example, goodwill (refer to row 8) must be reported as a positive number, as must gains due to the change in the own credit risk of the bank (refer to row 14). However, losses due to the change in the own credit risk of the ADI must be reported as a negative number as these are added back in the calculation of Common Equity Tier 1 Capital.

Guidelines for the LCR disclosure template
 
2.             Data in Table 20 must be calculated as simple averages of daily observations over the previous quarter (i.e. the average is calculated over a period of, typically, 90 days)[64]. APRA may permit an LCR ADI to calculate the data in Table 20 based on averages of monthly observations over the previous quarter until the first reporting period after 1 January 2017.
3.             An LCR ADI must publish the number of data points used in calculating the average figures in Table 20.
4.             In completing Table 20, an LCR ADI must have regard to Table 20A, which sets out an explanation of each row of Table 20.
Table 20A: Explanation of each row in the LCR disclosure template
 
Explanation of each row of the LCR disclosure template

Row number
Explanation

1
Sum of all eligible HQLA, as defined in APS 210, before the application of any limits, excluding assets that do not meet the operational requirements and, where applicable, assets qualifying under alternative liquidity approaches.

2
ALA are made available in jurisdictions where there is insufficient supply of HQLA1 (or both HQLA1 and HQLA2) in the domestic currency to meet the aggregate demand of banks with significant exposures in the domestic currency in the LCR framework.

3
Liquid assets contained in the RBNZ’s Liquidity Policy – Annex: Liquid Assets – Prudential Supervision Department Document BS13A12.

4
Retail deposits and deposits from small business customers are the sum of stable deposits, less stable deposits and any other funding sourced from (i) natural persons and/or (ii) small business customers (as defined in paragraph  and footnote 6 of Attachment A to APS 210, and paragraphs 117 to 120 of Prudential Practice Guide APG 210 Liquidity).

5
Stable deposits include deposits placed with an LCR ADI by a natural person and unsecured wholesale funding provided by small business customers, defined as ‘stable’ in APS 210.

6
Less stable deposits include deposits placed with an LCR ADI by a natural person and unsecured wholesale funding provided by small business customers, not defined as ‘stable’ in APS 210.

7
Unsecured wholesale funding is defined as those liabilities and general obligations from customers other than natural persons and small business customers that are not collateralised.

8
Operational deposits include deposits from other ADIs where those deposits are required for certain activities (i.e. clearing, custody or cash management activities). Deposits in institutional networks of cooperative banks include deposits of member institutions with the central institution or specialised central service providers.

9
Non-operational deposits are all other unsecured wholesale deposits, both insured and uninsured.

10
Unsecured debt includes all notes, bonds and other debt securities issued by the LCR ADI, regardless of the holder, unless the bond is sold exclusively in the retail market and held in retail accounts.

11
Secured wholesale funding is defined as all collateralised liabilities and general obligations.

12
Additional requirements include other off-balance sheet liabilities or obligations.

13
Outflows related to derivative exposures and other collateral requirements include expected contractual derivatives cash flows on a net basis. These outflows also include increased liquidity needs related to: downgrade triggers embedded in financing transactions, derivative and other contracts; the potential for valuation changes on posted collateral securing derivatives and other transactions; excess non-segregated collateral held at the LCR ADI that could contractually be called at any time; contractually required collateral on transactions for which the counterparty has not yet demanded that the collateral be posted; contracts that allow collateral substitution to non-HQLA assets; and market valuation changes on derivatives or other transactions.

14
Outflows related to loss of funding on secured debt products include loss of funding on: asset-backed securities, covered bonds and other structured financing instruments; and asset-backed commercial paper, conduits, securities investment vehicles and other such financing facilities.

15
Credit and liquidity facilities include drawdowns on committed (contractually irrevocable) or conditionally revocable credit and liquidity facilities. The currently undrawn portion of these facilities is calculated net of any eligible HQLA if the HQLA have already been posted as collateral to secure the facilities or that are contractually obliged to be posted when the counterparty draws down the facility.

16
Other contractual funding obligations include contractual obligations to extend funds within a 30-day period and other contractual cash outflows not previously captured under APS 210.

17
Other contingent funding obligations, as defined in APS 210.

18
Total cash outflows: sum of rows 4–17.

19
Secured lending includes all maturing reverse repurchase and securities borrowing agreements.

20
Inflows from fully performing exposures include both secured and unsecured loans and other payments that are fully performing and contractually due within 30 calendar days from retail and small business customers and other wholesale customers.

21
Other cash inflows include derivatives cash inflows and other contractual cash inflows.

22
Total cash inflows: sum of rows 19–21.

23
Total liquid assets (after the application of any cap on HQLA2).

24
Total net cash outflows (after the application of any cap on cash inflows).

25
Liquidity Coverage Ratio (after the application of any cap on HQLA2 and caps on cash inflows).

[1]           Other than a foreign ADI – refer to paragraph 9(q).
[2]           APRA will publish on its website a current list of those ADIs required to make the disclosures required in Attachment H.
[3]           Where the disclosures required to be made under paragraph 47 do not coincide with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial report under the Corporations Act, the disclosures must be included in the Regulatory Disclosures section of the ADI’s website. 
[4]           See paragraph 33 above.
[5]           See paragraph 33 above.
[6]           See paragraph 39 above.
[7]           See paragraph 39 above.
[8]           See paragraph 39 above.
[9]           However, an ADI may, subject to APRA’s approval, use more frequent calculations (e.g. daily or monthly averaging) on a consistent basis.
[10]          For the avoidance of doubt, an ADI is not required to publish figures for any of the previous three quarters that were not previously disclosed under paragraph 47. 
[11]          See paragraph 39 above.
[12]          However, APRA may permit an ADI whose financial year ends on 30 June to make the disclosures required in Attachment H as at 31 December (i.e. based on interim rather than financial year-end data).
[13]          Refer to subsection 11AF(2) of the Act.
[14]          For standardised portfolios: claims secured by residential mortgage; other retail; corporate; bank; government; and all other; and for IRB portfolios: corporate; sovereign; bank; residential mortgage; qualifying revolving retail; other retail; and all other.
[15]          Table 4 does not include equities or securitisation exposures.
[16]          This breakdown could be in line with normal accounting rules (e.g. loans; commitments and other non-market off-balance sheet exposures; debt securities; and over-the-counter derivatives).
[17]          Refer to footnote 16.
[18]          Refer to footnote 16.
[19]          Securitisation exposures include but are not restricted to, securities, liquidity facilities, protection provided to securitisation positions, other commitments and credit enhancements such as cash collateral and other subordinated assets. Refer to Prudential Standard APS 120 Securitisation (APS 120).
[20]          As defined in Prudential Standard APS 112 Capital Adequacy: Standardised Approach to Credit Risk (APS 112).
[21]          Table 7 does not include equities or securitisation exposures.
[22]          This breakdown could be in line with normal accounting rules (e.g. loans; commitments and other non-market off-balance sheet exposures; debt securities; and over-the-counter derivatives).
[23]          Geographical areas may comprise individual countries, groups of countries or regions within countries. An ADI might choose to define the geographical areas based on the way its portfolio is geographically managed. The criteria used to allocate the loans to geographical areas must be specified.
[24]          ADIs are encouraged also to provide an analysis of the aging of loans that are past due.
[25]          The reconciliation shows separately specific provisions and the general reserve for credit losses; the information comprises: a description of the type of provision/reserve; the opening balances; write-offs taken during the period; amounts set aside (or reversed) for estimated probable loan losses during the period, any other adjustments (e.g. exchange rate differences, business combinations, acquisitions and disposals of subsidiaries), including transfers between provisions and reserves; and the closing balances. Write-offs and recoveries that have been recorded directly to the income statement must be disclosed separately.
[26]          This information need not be disclosed if the ADI complies with a standard mapping published by APRA.
[27]          Table 9 does not include equities or securitisation exposures.
[28]          In both the qualitative disclosures and quantitative disclosures that follow, an ADI must distinguish between the qualifying revolving retail exposures and other retail exposures unless these portfolios are insignificant in size (relative to overall credit exposures) and the risk profile of each portfolio is sufficiently similar such that separate disclosure would not help users’ understanding of the risk profile of the ADI’s retail business.
[29]          This disclosure does not require a detailed description of the model in full – it must provide a broad overview of the model approach, describing definitions of the variables, and methods for estimating and validating those variables set out in the quantitative risk disclosures below. This must be done for each of the portfolios. The ADI must draw out any significant differences in approach to estimating these variables within each portfolio.
[30]          The PD, LGD and EAD disclosures below must reflect the effects of collateral, netting and guarantees/credit derivatives as applicable.
[31]          Outstanding loans and EAD on undrawn commitments can be presented on a combined basis for these disclosures.
[32]          An ADI need only provide one estimate of EAD for each portfolio. However, where an ADI believes it is helpful, in order to give a more meaningful assessment of risk, they may also disclose EAD estimates across a number of EAD categories, against the undrawn exposures to which these relate.
[33]          An ADI would normally be expected to follow the disclosures provided for the non-retail portfolios. However, an ADI may choose to adopt EL grades as the basis of disclosure where they believe this can provide the reader with a meaningful differentiation of credit risk. Where an ADI is aggregating internal grades (either PD/LGD or EL) for the purposes of disclosure, this must be a representative breakdown of the distribution of those grades used in the IRB approach.
[34]          These disclosures are a way of further informing about the reliability of the information provided in the ‘quantitative disclosures: risk assessment’ over the long run.
[35]          An ADI is expected to provide these disclosures for as long run of data as possible – for example, if the ADI has 10 years of data, it might choose to disclose the average default rates for each PD grade over that 10-year period. Annual amounts need not be disclosed.
[36]               An ADI must provide this further decomposition where it will allow users greater insight into the reliability of the estimates provided in Table 9(d) ‘Quantitative disclosures: risk assessment’. In particular, an ADI must provide this information where there are material differences between the PD, LGD or EAD estimates given by it compared to actual outcomes over the long run. The ADI must also provide explanations for such differences.
[37]          At a minimum, an ADI must provide the disclosures in this table in relation to credit risk mitigation that has been recognised for the purposes of reducing capital requirements under APS 112 and Prudential Standard APS 113 Capital Adequacy: Internal Ratings-based Approach to Credit Risk (APS 113). Where relevant, an ADI is encouraged to give further information about mitigants that have not been recognised for that purpose. Credit derivatives and other credit risk mitigation that are treated as part of synthetic securitisation structures must be excluded from the credit risk mitigation disclosures and included within those relating to securitisation (Table 12).
[38]          If the comprehensive approach is applied, where applicable, the total exposure covered by collateral after haircuts must be reduced further to remove any positive adjustments that were applied to the exposure as permitted under APS 112 and APS 113.
[39]          Net credit exposure is the credit exposure on derivatives transactions after considering both the benefits from legally enforceable netting agreements and collateral arrangements.            
[40]          For example, interest rate contracts, foreign exchange contracts, equity contracts, credit derivatives, and commodity/other contracts.
[41]          For example, Credit Default Swaps, Total Return Swaps, Credit options, and other.
[42]          Where relevant, an ADI is encouraged to differentiate between securitisation exposures resulting from activities in which they are an originating ADI and exposures that result from all other securitisation activities that are subject to APS 120. An originating ADI is also encouraged to distinguish between situations where it originates underlying exposures included in a securitisation from those where it is either a managing ADI (of a third party securitisation) or provider of a facility (other than derivatives) to an asset-backed commercial paper securitisation.
[43]          Where relevant, an ADI must provide separate qualitative disclosures for banking book and trading book exposures.
[44]          For example, if an ADI is particularly active in the market of senior tranches of re-securitisations of mezzanine tranches related to securitisations of residential mortgages, it must describe the ‘layers’ of re-securitisations (i.e. senior tranche of mezzanine tranche of residential mortgage); this description must be provided for the main categories of re-securitisation products in which the ADI is significantly active.
[45]          For example, originator, investor, servicer, provider of credit enhancement, sponsor, liquidity provider, swap provider, protection provider.
[46]          Refer to footnote 19.
[47]          An ADI would generally be considered a ‘sponsor’ if it, in fact or in substance, manages or advises the programme, places securities into the market, or provides liquidity and/or credit enhancements. The programme may include, for example, ABCP conduit programmes and structured investment vehicles.
[48]          Where relevant, ADIs are encouraged to differentiate between valuation of securitisation exposures and resecuritisation exposures.
[49]          For example, credit cards, home equity, auto, and securitisation exposures detailed by underlying exposure type and security type (e.g. Residential Mortgage-backed Securities (RMBS), Commercial Mortgage-backed Securities (CMBS), Asset-backed Securities (ABS), Collateralised Debt Obligations (CDOs), etc.
[50]          ‘Exposures securitised’ include underlying exposures originated by the ADI, whether generated by it or purchased into the balance sheet from third parties, and third-party exposures included in sponsored schemes. Securitisation transactions (including underlying exposures originally on the ADI’s balance sheet and underlying exposures acquired by the ADI from third-party entities) in which the originating ADI does not retain any securitisation exposure must be shown separately but need only be reported for the year of inception. 
[51]          An ADI is required to disclose exposures regardless of whether there is a capital charge under APS 120.
[52]          For example, charge-offs/allowances (if the assets remain on the ADI’s balance sheet) or write-downs of retained residual interests, as well as recognition of liabilities for probable future financial support required of the ADI with respect to securitised assets.
[53]          Refer to footnote 50.
[54]          Refer to footnote 19.
[55]          Refer to APS 111.
[56]          Separate disclosures are required for the capital requirements on securitisation positions under Table 12.
[57]          See paragraph 7 in Attachment D to APS 110
[58]          This should show the credit equivalent amount of off-balance sheet items according to paragraph 30 in Attachment D to APS 110
[59]          This should be the sum of the previous items and should be consistent with row 21 of Table 18.
[60]          Other than a foreign ADI; refer to paragraph 9(q) of this Prudential Standard.
[61]          Unweighted values must be calculated as outstanding balances maturing or callable within 30 days (for inflows and outflows).
[62]          Weighted values must be calculated after the application of respective haircuts (for HQLA) or inflow and outflow rates (for inflows and outflows).
[63]          Adjusted values must be calculated after the application of both (i) haircuts and inflow and outflow rates and (ii) any applicable caps (i.e. cap on HQLA2 and cap on inflows).
[64]          For LCR ADIs reporting on a semi-annual basis, the average LCR must be reported for each of the two preceding quarters. For LCR ADIs reporting on an annual basis, the LCR must be reported for each of the preceding four quarters.
[65]          Quantitative disclosures
[66]          Qualitative disclosures
[67]          Or within 40 business days after the end of the period to which the disclosure relates for any quarterly period that does not coincide with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial report under the Corporations Act.
[68]          Or within 40 business days after the end of the period to which the disclosure relates for any quarterly period that does not coincide with the lodgement of an ADI’s financial report under the Corporations Act.
