Netting challenges push ING’s market RWAs up 64%

A regulatory issue left the bank unable to consolidate cross-border positions in Q4

ING Bank’s market risk-weighted assets (RWAs) jumped 64% in the fourth quarter of the year, after the bank was unable to net derivatives positions across different geographic units.

Market RWAs reached €9 billion ($10.3 billion) as of end-December, up from €5.5 billion three months prior. The increase was triggered by positions in the financial markets division for which the bank said it was not able to “consolidate positions and apply netting … as a result of regulations”.
