Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas Revises Bank Rules on Liquidity

The Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas will lift existing liquidity rules imposed on big banks in exchange for International standards set under the Basel framework by next year. In a statement over the weekend, the central bank said it will replace three liquidity-related standards imposed on universal and commercial banks with the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) that should be in place by January 1, 2018. In March last year, the company announced phased-in implementation of the LCR, which requires big banks operating in the Philippines to hold high- quality, easily convertible assets to cover total net cash outflows for a 30-day period. Such buffers are designed to enable lenders to stay liquid at a time of funding crunch. With the new prudential measure, the company announced it can do away with its present requirements for banks to keep liquid assets equivalent to at least half of their government deposits and other liabilities, as well as foreign currency-denominated liquid assets that match the amount of foreign currency deposit units (FCDUs) held by the lenders. Banks had been required to hold foreign currency denominated assets equivalent to 70% of FCDUs in the same currency as such liabilities. The company announced introducing the LCR will cover these buffers in one go. The central bank had designated an observation period for the new liquidity rule from July 2016 until end-2017, wherein banks start reporting their LCRs. By January 2018, banks' asset coverage must account for at least 90% of their total cash outflows, and reach 100% by January 1, 2019. The LCR forms part of a package of reforms under the Basel 3 regime, which was crafted by international policy makers to promote risk management and prevent a repeat of the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. The Basel Committee defines the LCR as a way to promote short-term resilience to ensure that banks remain liquid even in times of stress. Apart from the LCR, the central bank had earlier adopted other Basel 3 components such as the 10% capital adequacy ratio, the framework for domestic systemically important banks, and the 5% leverage ratio, among others. The rollout of the Net Stable Funding Ratio - which tracks liquidity positions over a year - has been pushed back to this year, with the BSP citing the need for more consultations with banks to refine the details of the measure.
