EU proposal amends CRD 4 and CRR rules

The export finance community can begin to breathe a sigh of relief after the EU Commission this week proposed several amendments to the CRD 4 and CRR rules, which if implemented will come into effect in 2018.

    We should make clear the leading role of the Export Credit Group of the European Banking Federation (EBF) which published a paper about the unintended consequences of the Leverage Ratio on Export Finance as early as May 2011. This Working Group which has been chaired since 2013 by Ralph Lerch has been coordinating its efforts with the ICC Banking Commission and some ECAs, members of the Berne Union, also raised their concerns. The project submitted last week by the European Commission is a clear recognition of the value of joint and coordinated actions.

    This is a major breakthrough. One that I would have found difficult to predict. Getting Leverage Ratio relief will be one of the biggest game changers in recent years. Hats off to all those who have been lobbying tirelessly. There is still some way to go - but for the 1st time light at the end of the tunnel. Gabby
