Collector informs that the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority has appointed an auditor
The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority ("SFSA") (Sw. Finansinspektionen) has informed Collector Bank AB that the SFSA has, as part of its supervision, appointed an auditor to perform an audit of Collector Bank AB on the SFSA's behalf. The appointment is a result of Collector's announcement on 21 January 2020 of, among other, an extra provisioning for credit losses and that the bank's own funds temporarily fall below the applicable capital buffer requirement.
The auditor's assignment is primarily to review and evaluate the bank's model and process for calculations of provisions for credit losses in relation to corporate lending and the bank's provisioning for credit losses within corporate lending as of 31 December 2019.
The SFSA has also informed that it has no objection to the plan for restoration of the combined capital buffer requirement (i.e. the capital conservation plan) which Collector submitted to the SFSA, and that the SFSA will closely monitor the bank's implementation of the plan.
