On 26 January 2021, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published for consultation two technical amendments to the standard on minimum haircut floors for securities financing transactions (SFTs). Technical amendments are defined as changes in the Basel standards that are not substantial in nature but that cannot be unambiguously resolved based on the current text. The technical amendments seek to address an interpretative issue relating to collateral upgrade transactions and correct for a misstatement of the formula used to calculate haircut floors for netting sets of STFs. The deadline for comments on the consultation is 31 March 2021.
