Survey LD Loss Given Default

With the new reporting obligation inherent in the information survey LD Loss Given Default – the Supervisory Board intends to set up an archive of data on the recovery of claims pursued by banks and financial intermediaries.

Survey LD & the Loss Given Default calculation

This archive is functional as it allows the recognition of historically recorded loss rates on the positions in default, the estimate of the expected loss (the PA) that all Intermediaries will be required to make under the new accounting model for evaluating the budgeting of the activities (ccdd. Impairment). This new model will replace the current model which is based on a concept of loss made by the Intermediary statistically but not attributable to individual credits (ccdd. Incurred losses) in accordance with IAS 39.

NEW PURPOSE OF SUPERVISION (LGD) In addition to the accounting models referred to in the previous paragraph, the report also holds the purpose of keeping watch on those Intermediaries who, depending on the adoption of advanced internal models for credit risk, independently calculate the loss given default (LGD below).
