MIPRU 4.2F sets out the risk weights that a firm should apply to exposures in the form of loans secured on real estate property, other loans, exposures in the form of funds, and past due items, when calculating risk weighted exposure amounts for calculating the credit risk capital requirement under MIPRU 4.2.23 R.
This section is broadly organised according to the type of exposure class.(1) Exposures secured by mortgages on residential property (MIPRU 4.2F.4 R to MIPRU 4.2F.36 R)(2) Exposures secured by mortgages on commercial property (MIPRU 4.2F.37 R)(3) Exposures to other loans (MIPRU 4.2F.38 R)(4) Exposures to funds (MIPRU 4.2F.39 R to MIPRU 4.2F.49 R)(5) Exposures to past due items (MIPRU 4.2F.50 R to MIPRU 4.2F.56 G)
Exposures in the form of funds for which a credit assessment by a nominated ECAI is available must be assigned a risk weight using:(1) the table in MIPRU 4.2E.14 R to determine the credit quality step associated with that credit assessment; and(2) the table in MIPRU 4.2F.41 R to determine the risk weight to be applied to the rated position, based on the associated credit quality step.
Other examples of high-risk funds are:(1) those in which a substantial element of the fund's property is made up of items that would attract a risk weight of over 100%; and(2) those whose mandate (as referred to in MIPRU 4.2F.46 R would permit it to invest in a substantial amount of items that would attract a risk weight of over 100%.
Where a firm is not aware of the underlying exposures of a fund, it may calculate an average risk weight for the fund in the following manner: (1) it will be assumed that the fund first invests, to the maximum extent allowed under its mandate, in the exposure classes attracting the highest capital resources requirement; and(2) then continues making investments in descending order until the maximum total investment limit is reached.
Exposures in the form of funds that are not past due items, that have been assigned a risk weight of 150% or greater, and for which value adjustments have been established, may be assigned a risk weight of: (1) 100% if value adjustments are no less than 20% of the exposure value gross of value adjustments; or(2) 50%, if value adjustments are no less than 50% of the exposure value gross of value adjustments

If a firm has an exposure to a person ('A') when A is acting on his own behalf, and also an exposure to A when A acts in his capacity as trustee, custodian or general partner of an investment trust, unit trust, venture capital or other investment fund, pension fund or a similar fund (a "fund"), the firm may treat the latter exposure as if it was to the fund, unless such a treatment would be misleading.
When considering whether the treatment described is misleading, factors a firm should consider include:(1) the degree of independence of control of the fund, including the relation of the fund's board and senior management to the firm or to other funds or to both;(2) the terms on which the counterparty, when acting as trustee, is able to satisfy its obligation to the firm out of the fund of which it is trustee;(3) whether the beneficial owners of the fund are connected to the
