APRA: A more flexible and resilient capital framework for ADIs

1 April 2021

The ABA recommends that the final policy settings accurately reflect the proven resilience of banks and the needs of the Australian economy.

The ABA also expects further calibration to be undertaken to ensure there is no increase to the overall level of capital in the banking system, considers that the proposed application of a non-standard treatment to interest-only mortgages with terms greater than five years is unduly punitive, considers that the proposed capital allocation to New Zealand exposures at Level 2 is set at a conservative level that is not commensurate with the level of risk

ABA members also feel consideration should be given to increasing the default level of the proposed CCyB, it considers that the required IT updates makes the 1 January 2023 commencement date challenging, encourages APRA to promptly update its 2015 International capital comparison study and some of APRA’s current proposals may amplify volatility without necessarily improving the measurement of risk.

The proposed solution put forward in DP-183 refers to a principle of ‘Purpose-based consent’. Purpose Based Consents are a way to encode all of the required dimensions and granularity for a specific use case. Unfortunately, this specificity leads to a consequent loss in flexibility. DP-183 highlights read-only use cases which are not currently covered; however, the same principles and requirements are even stronger to enable read-write access.
