Position on the implementation of the NSFR in the EU
By end of 2016 the EU commission has to deliver a proposal in which form to implement the Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR) in the EU. The German Banking Industry Committee (GBIC) is pleased to present its priorities relating to this endeavour covering nine different topics. As pointed out in the following paragraphs the NSFR, as currently drafted by the Basel Committee shows significant shortfalls in terms of calibration, complexity and proportionality which could be dealt with by the EU commission.
