PRU 2.2.6 Guidance for Form PIB 2 — Balance Sheet — Islamic Financial Institutions

Instructional Guidelines

There are effectively three sets of returns for Category 5 institutions. Wherever appropriate, all balance sheet captions need to identify separately if they have arisen from self financed business (including finance from Amanah and demand deposits), from the business provided by utilising the unrestricted assets of PSIA asset providers and from the restricted PSIA business. Whilst AAOIFI permits unrestricted PSIA assets to be commingled with self financed assets for balance sheet reporting purposes, the need to maintain separate records for each asset class is paramount. Restricted PSIA assets and liabilities cannot be commingled with the former and should be reported off balance sheet.

In the event of any uncertainty, Authorised Firms are required to consult with DFSA to obtain the necessary clarity.

2.9.1 Direct Credit Substitutes These relate to the financial requirements of a counterparty where the risk of loss to the reporting institution on the transaction is equivalent to a direct claim on the counterparty. Essentially the risk of loss depends on the creditworthiness of the counterparty. Include here:
•   Guarantees of a financial nature to stand behind the current obligations of customers (e.g. loan guarantees);
•   Guarantees of leasing operations;
•   Letters of Credit and Stand-by Letters of Credit to the extent that they do not qualify for inclusion in Item No. 2.9.3 "Trade related contingents" below;
•   Guarantees of a capital nature such as undertakings given to a non bank financial company which are considered as capital by the appropriate regulatory body. Guarantees given to a company not connected to the reporting institution should be risk weighted at 100% and those for connected companies should be deducted from the reporting institution's capital base.
•   Acceptances granted and risk participation in bankers' acceptances. Where the reporting institution's own acceptances have been discounted by that institution the nominal value of the bills held should be deducted from the nominal amount of the bills issued under the facility and a corresponding on balance sheet entry made.
2.9.2 Transaction related Contingents These exposures relate to the on-going trading activities of a counterparty where the risk of loss to the reporting institution depends on the likelihood of a future event which is independent of the creditworthiness of the counterparty. They are essentially guarantees that support particular non financial obligations rather than a customer's financial obligations. Include here:
•   Advance payment guarantees
•   Performance bonds including bid or tender bonds, warranties and indemnities (indemnities given for lost share certificates or bills of lading and guarantees of the validity of papers rather than of payment under certain conditions should be reported here);
•   Stand-by Letters of Credit relating to a particular contract or to non financial transactions (including arrangements backing, inter alia, subcontractors' and supplier's performance, labour and materials, contracts and construction bids).
2.9.3 Trade related Contingents Report short term self liquidating trade related items such as documentary letters of credit issued by the reporting institution which are to be collateralised by the underlying shipment i.e. the credit provides for the reporting institution to retain title to the underlying shipment. L/C's issued without provision for the reporting institution to retain title to the underlying shipment should be reported under direct credit substitutes above.
2.9.4 Sale and Repurchase Agreements Only report here sale and repurchase agreements where the asset sold is not reported on the balance sheet. If it is reported on the balance sheet, it should not be reported here but in the relevant on balance sheet section of the return. Where the asset is off balance sheet, the appropriate counterparty weighting is to be determined by the issuer of the security and not according to the counterparty with whom the transaction has been entered into.
2.9.5 Forward Assets Purchases The appropriate counterparty weighting should be determined by the asset to be purchased and not the counterparty with whom the contract has been entered into. Include commitments for loans and other on balance sheet items with certain drawdown. Exclude foreign currency spot deposits with value date of up to two working dates after trade date.
2.9.6 Forward Deposits Placed Relates to agreements between two parties whereby one will pay and the other receive an agreed rate of interest on a deposit to be placed by one with the other at some pre determined rate in the future. The weight should be determined according to the counterparty with whom the deposit will be placed. Exclude foreign currency spot deposits with value date of up to two working dates after trade date.
2.9.7 Uncalled partly-paid shares and securities Only include if there is a specific date for a call. If there is no specific date for a call, the item should be included as a long term commitment under PIB 2 Item No. 2.9.10 "Other Commitments".
2.9.8 NIF's and RUF's Note issuance and revolving underwriting facilities should include the reporting institutions underwriting obligations of any maturity. Where the facility has been drawn down by the borrower and the notes are held by someone other than the Authorised Firm, the underwriting obligation should continue to be reported at the nominal amount.
2.9.9 Endorsement of Bills These should be reported at the full nominal amount, less any amount for bills which the institution now holds but had previously endorsed. Endorsement of bills not accepted by banks will attract the counterparty risk weighting of the issuer. If it has been endorsed by another bank, a reduced risk weighting applies.
2.9.10 Other Commitments All other undrawn commitments are reportable here, divided into commitments under and over one year.
2.9.11 OTC Derivative Contracts Counterparty risk arising in both the non-trading and trading books should be calculated with reference to the Rules in PIB Section A4.5. Amounts to be reported here are the replacement costs/ NPV of such contracts
2.10 to 2.18.11 Assets financed by PSIAR The methodology for calculating exposures financed by PSIA assets are, in principle, no different to calculating exposures for a reporting institution's self financed assets. All the guidance notes above apply in their entirety unless stated otherwise.
2.20 Deposits Separately identify deposits due to clearing houses in PIB 2 Item No. 2.20.1 and other financial institutions in PIB 2 Item No. 2.20.2. All other deposits are to be reported in PIB 2 Item No. 2.20.3, "Other".
