New Basel rules to have major impact on Danish lenders, biz minister says

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision's new international banking standards could have a major effect on Denmark's financial institutions, according to the country's business minister, Brian Mikkelsen.

The Basel Committee on Dec. 7 completed its post-crisis capital framework, including a controversial output floor limiting the extent to which banks can use bespoke internal models to calculate the riskiness of assets. Mikkelsen said capital requirements for the largest Danish banks could rise by up to 83 billion Danish kroner once the rules take full effect in 2027, corresponding to an increase of 31% to 36% from already known future requirements.

Denmark's lenders have argued that they will be affected unfairly by the "output floor," as it does not adequately factor in the very low risk of holding Danish mortgage bonds, Reuters noted. Mikkelsen said the Scandinavian country will make a demand to the EU that the Danish financial sector not be hit unnecessarily hard and will continue to work for the capital requirements to reflect actual risk.

The head of Sweden's financial supervisory authority, Erik Thedeen, said the body would look to provide "to the greatest extent possible a high degree of predictability in how capital requirements for Swedish banks could change, even if we need to wait for new EU regulations before we can decide on new requirements."

He added that Sweden would not let capital requirements rise "automatically" because of the new Basel rules, but noted that the regulator "continues to view large capital buffers in banks as a key component of financial stability, and capital levels of the Swedish banks may need to rise once the agreement is implemented."
