Note

(1)

In determining the appropriate other assets requirement (OAR) for guarantees given in a group context, a firm should follow the calculation below:

(a)

Categorise the guarantee agreements into:

(i)

those with the character of credit substitutes; or

(ii)

those not having the character of credit substitutes; or

(iii)

agreements to provide guarantees.

(b)

Calculate the weighted value.

(i)

For guarantees falling under (1)(a)(i), the weighted value will be 100% of the estimated current year liability under the guarantee.

(ii)

For guarantees falling under (1)(a)(ii) the weighted value will be 50% of the estimated current year liability under the guarantee.

(iii)

For guarantees falling under (1)(a)(iii), the weighted value will be nil.

(c)

The OAR is calculated as:

Weighted value x 8% x counterparty weighting (IPRU-INV 5.14.1R)

(2)

For the purpose of this requirement, in assessing whether the guarantee has the characteristics of a credit substitute the following factors should be considered:

(a)

do the agreements allow for periodic or ad-hoc calling of funds;

(b)

have the guarantees been drawn upon on a regular basis;

(c)

do firms in the group rely on such guarantees to meet their working capital or regulatory capital requirements?

(3)

Where a firm is part of a group including other FCA regulated entities which together have entered into cross-group guarantee arrangements which give rise to an OAR, the estimate of the potential liability under the guarantee may be apportioned between the regulated entities for the purpose of calculating each firm's OAR.

BIPRU 12.8.11GRP
In each application for an intra-group liquidity modification, the appropriate regulator will consider the extent to which it is appropriate to modify the overall liquidity adequacy rule to allow reliance by an applicant firm on liquidity resources elsewhere in a firm'sgroup. However, it is unlikely that the appropriate regulator would consider the conditions in section 138A of the Act to be met in circumstances in which the overall liquidity adequacy rule was modified to allow
BIPRU 4.9.13GRP
For the purposes of BIPRU 4.9.12 R (1), in the case of non-equity exposures a firm should look at the risk profile of the underlying exposures and map these to an equivalent equity risk weight. For example, if the underlying exposures are exchange-traded, the risk weight of exchange-traded equity exposures will apply. If the underlying exposures are unknown, the risk weight of the other equity class will apply. Only under exceptional circumstances would supervisors expect to see
SUP 9.3.1GRP
Business and internal control risks vary from firm to firm, according to the nature and complexity of the business. The FCA's assessment of these risks is reflected in how its rules apply to different categories of firm as well as in the use of its other regulatory tools. One of the tools the FCA has available is to give a firm individual guidance on the application of the requirements or standards under the regulatory system in the firm's particular circumstances.

SYSC 3.2.10GRP

The function should be adequately resourced and staffed by an appropriate number of competent staff who are sufficiently independent
EG 19.14.6RP
1The FCA will adopt a risk-based approach to its enforcement under2 the Money Laundering Regulations. Failures in anti-money laundering or counter-terrorist financing2 controls will not automatically result in disciplinary sanctions, although enforcement action is more likely where a firm has not taken adequate steps to identify its2 risks or put in place appropriate controls to mitigate those risks, and failed to take steps to ensure that controls are being effectively implemented.
APER 4.6.12GRP
(1) It is important for the approved person performing an accountable higher management function1 to understand the business for which they are1 responsible (APER 4.6.4G1). An approved person performing an accountable higher management function1 is unlikely to be an expert in all aspects of a complex financial services business. However, they1 should understand and inform themselves1 about the business sufficiently to understand the risks of its trading, credit or other business
