5 Today’s requirements 1.Investment Services Directive (“ISD”) List of investment activities/instruments (different to UK “regulated activities”) performed by “investment firm”. Exemptions – if apply, outside ISD and CAD. 2.Capital Adequacy Directive (“CAD”) Capital requirements for most ISD “investment firms” based on types of “investment activity” performed. CAD “exemptions” for some firms.

6 Today’s requirements 1.IMRO/SFA/PIA rules  IPRU(INV) Covers firms: within Capital Adequacy Directive (“CAD”) (e.g. segregated managers, agency brokers, principal brokers); exempt from CAD but within Investment Services Directive (“ISD”) (e.g. advice/arranging only, no client money); and outside both directives (e.g. pure UCITS managers, some private equity firms). 2.Banking Supervisory Policy  IPRU(BANK)

7 Today’s requirements: ISD firms 1.Own funds €50,000 (if no client assets/money); or €125,000 (hold client money or assets); or €730,000 (full principal trader) 2.Financial resources (a) Investment mangers/non-principal brokers - ¼ or 6/52 of annual audited expenses some add-ons (e.g. for foreign exchange exposure “market risk”) (b) Principal brokers Based on ¼ annual audited expenses and trading book “market risk” add-ons 3.Large exposures limits NB Does not apply to all ISD firms 4.Consolidated reporting NB Investment managers and non-principal brokers currently exempt/waiver

10 CRD – what is it? “Recasting” of current Banking Consolidation and Capital Adequacy Directives Legislation implementing Basel II in EU for banks and investment firms Will result in new FSA rules Will result in new rules across EEA NB: MiFID replaces ISD on 1 November 2007 so is relevant

11 SCOPE Solo/Consolidated Pillar I Minimum Capital Pillar II Supervisory Review Supervisory Review Process (“ SREP” ) monitoring Individual Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (“ ICAAP” ) using Supervisor Risk Assessment Systems (“ RAS”) resulting in Individual Capital Guidance (“ ICG ”) Pillar III Market Discipline Public Disclosure of Systems & Controls Banking Book (i) Standardised (ii) IRB Foundation (iii) IRB Advanced or Fixed Overheads Requirement Concentration risk Operational Risk (i) Basic Indicator (ii) Standardised (iii) Advanced Measurement Trading Book

12 CRD changes: 1 January 2007 New FSA rules GENPRU/BIPRU 1 set of rules to cover wide range of firms (banks, brokers, managers) – so more complex, harder to navigate Affects “BIPRU firms”, i.e.: -Banks -“ISD firms” which are limited licence firms, i.e. (i) not “exempt CAD firms” (ii) do not trade as principal (iii) do not underwrite; e.g. segregated portfolio managers, UCITS investment managers, corporate finance firms, agency brokers -“ISD firms” which are limited activity firms (certain limited principal dealing, meets certain other conditions – not dealt with further here) -“ISD firms” which trade as principal and/or underwrite (“full scope firms”) -Firms in same group as a bank, limited licence, limited activity or full scope firm (NB these changes are NOT covered today)

13 CRD changes: 1 January 2007 New mechanical capital requirement under “Pillar I”: -Limited licence firms: higher of (a) €50,000 (no client money/assets); €125,000 (client money/assets); €730,000 (MTF operators); €125,000 plus an excess for FuM (UCITS firms) (b) ¼ adjusted audited expenditure; and (c) credit risk + market risk -Full scope firms: higher of (a) €730,000; and (b) credit risk + market risk + operational risk -Banks: higher of (a) €5 million; and (b) credit risk + market risk + operational risk NB Pillar I operational risk charge only applies to full scope firms and banks

14 CRD changes: 1 January 2007 EEA parent undertaking in group must meet new mechanical group capital requirement. For limited licence firms this is the higher of: -¼ group expenses; and -a “credit risk requirement” plus a “market risk” requirement for the group For full scope firms and banks this is credit risk + market risk + operational risk for the group Existing waivers/guidance lapse, circumstances in which waivers available change Group “waiver” only changes the requirement from parent’s consolidated accounts to parent’s unconsolidated accounts No transitional provision Options -move outside of “group” (definition roughly follows accounting definition) -move activities to separate/single entity -insert more capital -go offshore

15 CRD changes: 1 January 2007 New definition of capital Changes to SYSC required by CRD

16 CRD changes: 1 November 2007 MiFID implemented – replaces and widens ISD New MiFID activities: investment advice, placing without firm commitment, MTF operator For some firms, will change capital category, i.e. -firm previously within ISD but not within CAD (i.e. exempt CAD firm); - firm previously outside ISD which is subject to MiFID– could be limited licence or exempt CAD firm. “Exempt CAD firms” - investment advice/reception and transmission, no client money/assets Until 1 November 2007, continue with current IPRU(INV) rules (as non-ISD or ISD firm) FSA draft rules expected Q3: INVPRU. NOT subject to GENPRU/BIPRU FSA has indicated capital will be: €50,000; or €25,000 + professional indemnity insurance; or professional indemnity insurance

17 CRD changes: 1 January 2008 Changes apply to BIPRU firms Pillar II Individual Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (“ICAAP”): process for senior management to assess how much additional capital (if any) is required in the business to meet certain risks in addition to the mechanical Pillar I minimum Part of the amendments to risk management rules Non-relationship managed firms must send form to FSA reflecting ICAAP results FSA can challenge with Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (“SREP”) Pillar III Disclose publicly (e.g. on a website) how the firm/its group addresses certain risks, e.g. details of risk management policies

18 BIPRU firms: summary at 2008 1.Pillar I: limited licence (a) €50,000 (no client money/assets); €125,000 (client money/assets); €730,000 (MTF operators); €125,000 plus an excess for FuM (UCITS firms) (b) ¼ fixed overheads requirement; and (c) credit risk + market risk 2Pillar I: full scope BIPRU/banks (a) €730,000 (full scope) or €5 million (bank); and (b) credit risk + market risk + operational risk 3.Pillar I: Large exposures/Concentration rules limits 4.Pillar I: Consolidated reporting Applies to limited licence/limited activity firms for the first time 5.Pillar II Individual Capital Adequacy Assessment Process 6.Pillar III Disclosure
