PRA consults on updating UKTS identification of global systemically important institutions

In line with the BCBS framework, PRA is consulting on updates to the UKTS methodology for identifying and setting a capital buffer for global systemically important institutions.

The changes to the UKTS would include:

  • Adding ‘trading volume’ as a new indicator under the ‘substitutability/financial institution infrastructure’ category;
  • Updating indicator weights for the ‘substitutability/financial institution infrastructure’ category;
  • Adding insurance subsidiaries to data consolidation for several indicators; and
  • Deleting transitional provisions for initial implementation in 2015.

The consultation closes on 29 August 2023.
