Basel Committee allows countries to fix net stable funding ratio

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision decided to allow countries to fix their own net stable funding ratio for the treatment of derivative liabilities.

The net stable funding ratio, to be implemented as the minimum industry standard for capital requirements from Jan. 1, 2018, mandates a 20% required stable funding factor for derivative liabilities. However, countries will be allowed to lower the minimum requirement with a floor of 5%, the committee said.

The committee said it is considering whether the treatment of derivative liabilities needs any revisions and will conduct public consultations for any proposed changes.
