CIBC’s escape from SA-CCR lowers capital charge

CIBC stopped using the standardised approach for counterparty credit risk (SA-CCR) to calculate capital requirements for the majority of its derivatives portfolio last quarter, after adopting the internal model method. The switch contributed to a 4% drop in its counterparty credit risk (CCR) capital requirement quarter-on-quarter.

As of end-April, CIBC used the SA-CCR to set C$34 million ($25 million) of its total CCR charge, down 95% from C$871 million three months prior.
