EBA is consulting on draft RTS under article 379 of the impending Capital Requirements Regulation. The RTS set out how to calculate a firm’s exposure to connected clients where the firm is invested in transactions with underlying assets, such as securitisations or funds. Where a firm cannot look through and identify the obligors of all credit risk exposures, EBA proposes that those exposures be added to one hypothetical “unknown client”. Large exposures limits would apply to this “unknown client” in the same way they apply to other single clients. EBA asks for comments by 16 August.

"I find the Lexology service invaluable.
In common with many in-house lawyers, I have limited access to (and a limited budget for) resources and rely on receiving know-how from friends and contacts in private practice. Lexology is great as it provides a daily email with the headlines in all the areas of law that I am interested in (which are all relevant to me, as I was able to choose which areas I was interested in at registration), with links to articles from a wide variety of sources.
I tend to scroll through the daily email when I am having my lunch, reading the headlines and descriptions of the articles, and click on any items that are of interest to me - that way, I feel like I am kept 'in the loop' with legal developments.
In addition to the daily email, I find the articles themselves very helpful - they set out the legal principle but most importantly, they 'boil it down' to the practical implications. When I am doing legal research, I also find the archive search function very helpful.
I have recommended the service to quite a few friends who have also found it very helpful."
