The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today its final draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on the identification of a group of connected clients (GCC) under the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). These draft RTS, in conjunction with the EBA Guidelines on connected clients, provide the complete framework for the identification of two or more natural or legal persons who are so closely linked by idiosyncratic risk factors, that it is prudent to treat as a single risk.
In particular, the following conditions lead to the identification of two or more legal persons as connected:
. if they are part of the same consolidated financial statements, even in the absence of exposures towards the natural or legal person that controls the group. These draft RTS also provide a non-exhaustive list of circumstances of control criteria and control indicators to assess if there is a parent-subsidiary-similar relationship among natural and/or legal persons;
. if it is likely that the financial difficulties of one natural or legal person would spread to other(s) impacting full and timely repayment of liabilities;
. in case control and economic dependencies co-exist within group of connected clients in such a way that all relevant natural and/or legal persons constitute a single risk.
