The EBA has launched a consultation on updated draft Guidelines on the treatment of connected clients for large exposures. The consultation, which closes on 26 October 2016 seeks views on connected clients falling within the scope of the Capital Requirements Regulation and provides a list of indicators of control to be used by institutions for assessing connections based on control and assessing the existence of groups of connected clients of entities directly controlled by or directly interconnected with central governments. The EBA will hold a public hearing on the proposals on 5 September 2016.
