BMO braces for SA-CCR, revised securitisation charges

Regulatory and accounting changes are projected to erode Bank of Montreal’s (BMO) core capital ratio in January 2020.

The lender disclosed that the adoption of the IFRS 16 accounting standard for leases, full implementation of the standardised approach to counterparty credit risk (SA-CCR) and revisions to the securitisation capital framework would sap its Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio by 15 to 20 basis points from its end-October level of 11.4%.
