  • Cash Inflows

    • PIB A9.2.16

      (1) When considering its available cash inflows, an Authorised Firm may include contractual inflows from outstanding exposures only if they are fully performing and there is no reasonable basis to expect a default within the 30-day period. Contingent inflows are not included in total net cash inflows.
      (2) Where an Authorised Firm is overly reliant on cash inflows from one or a limited number of wholesale counterparties, the DFSA may set an alternative limit on the level of cash inflows that can be included in the LCR.

    • PIB A9.2.17

      (1) The DFSA may allow an Authorised Firm to recognise as cash inflow, access to a parent entity's funds via a committed funding facility if the Authorised Firm is a subsidiary of a foreign bank. In such instances, the committed funding facility from the parent entity must meet both of the following criteria:
      (a) the facility must be an irrevocable commitment and must be appropriately documented; and
      (b) the facility must be quantified.
      (2) A committed funding facility from a parent entity referred to in (1) can be recognised as a cash inflow only from day 16 of the LCR scenario. The cash inflow from a parent entity can be sufficient in size to cover only net cash outflows against items with a maturity or next call date between days 16 and 30 of the LCR.

      • PIB A9.2.18 Guidance

        Maturing secured lending, including reverse repos and securities borrowing

        1. An Authorised Firm should assume that maturing reverse repurchase or securities borrowing agreements secured by Level 1 HQLA will be rolled over and will not give rise to any cash inflows (zero %). Maturing reverse repurchase or securities borrowing agreements secured by Level 2 HQLA should be modelled as cash inflows, equivalent to the relevant haircut for the specific assets. An Authorised Firm is assumed not to roll-over maturing reserve repurchase or securities borrowing agreements secured by non-HQLA assets and can assume it will receive 100% of the cash related to those agreements. Collateralised loans extended to customers for the purpose of taking leveraged trading positions, i.e. margin loans, should be modelled with a 50% cash inflow from contractual inflows made against non-HQLA collateral.
        2. An exception to paragraph 1 is the situation where, if the collateral obtained through reverse repo, securities borrowing or collateral swaps, which matures within the 30-day period, is re-used (i.e. rehypothecated) and is tied up for 30 days or longer to cover short positions. An Authorised Firm should then assume that such reverse repo or securities borrowing arrangements will be rolled over and will not give rise to any cash inflows (zero %), reflecting its need to continue to cover the short position or to repurchase the relevant securities.
        3. An Authorised Firm should manage its collateral so that it is able to fulfil obligations to return collateral whenever the counterparty decides not to roll-over any reverse repo or securities lending transaction. This is especially the case for non-HQLA collateral, since such outflows are not captured in the LCR framework.

        Lines of credit

        4. Lines of credit, liquidity facilities and other contingent funding facilities that an Authorised Firm holds at other institutions for its own purposes should be assumed to be able to be drawn and so such facilities should receive a zero % inflow rate.

        Inflows by counterparty

        5. All inflows should be taken only at the latest possible date, based on the contractual rights available to counterparties. Inflows from loans that have no specific maturity should not be included, with the exception of minimum payments of principal, fee or interest associated with an open maturity loan.
        6. Operational deposits: a zero % inflow rate should apply to deposits held at other financial institutions for operational purposes.

        Other cash inflows

        7. Other contractual cash inflows: other contractual cash inflows should be included under this category. Cash inflows related to non-financial revenues should not be taken into account in the calculation of the net cash outflows for the purposes of the LCR. These items should receive an inflow rate of 100%.
