Decision from SFSA regarding Länsförsäkringar Bank consolidated situation

With CRR (575/2013) coming into effect Länsförsäkringar Bank was impacted by new regulations regarding the consolidation level for capital adequacy reporting. 

According to CRR the consolidated situation should include the mixed financial holding company Länsförsäkringar AB. To better reflect Länsförsäkringar Bank’s  actual risk and capital situation Länsförsäkringar Bank has, as previously announced, submitted an application to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority  (SFSA) for an exemption from the above mentioned rules, based on 4 chapter 10§ in the Special Supervision of Credit Institutions and Investment Firms Act.

The SFSA announced on 12 June 2015 the decision not to approve the above mentioned exemption. Länsförsäkringar Bank AB has since 1 January 2014 been reporting capital adequacy according to the CRR consolidated situation and has adjusted to the regulations from which exemption was applied for.
