The Basel Committee is consulting on capital treatment for “simple, transparent and comparable (STC)” securitisations. It proposes to supplement the July 2015 STC criteria with additional criteria for the specific purpose of differentiating the capital treatment of STC from that of other securitisation transactions. The additional criteria would, for example, exclude transactions in which the standardised risk weights for the underlying assets exceed certain levels. The Basel Committee seeks comments by 5 February 2016. (Source: Basel Committee Consults on Capital for Simple Securitisations)
