Guidance on contingent liquidity for locally-incorporated ADIs subject to LCR requirements

APRA has consulted on its proposed guidance on contingent liquidity for locally-incorporated authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs) subject to APS 210 Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) requirements.

November 2021


On 18 November 2021, following industry consultation, APRA released a letter outlining its final guidance for locally-incorporated LCR ADIs to maintain contingent liquidity through self-securitised assets on an ongoing basis.

The letter and non-confidential submission can be found below: 


Letter to all locally-incorporated LCR ADIs: contingent liquidity – final guidance

Release of consultation letter on contingent liquidity to locally-incorporated ADIs subject to LCR requirements


On 14 July 2021, APRA released a letter to consult on contingent liquidity for locally-incorporated ADIs subject to APS 210 LCR requirements. 

Based on APRA’s analysis and experience of the liquidity impacts through the early stages of COVID-19, APRA considers that it would be prudent for an ADI to maintain surplus self-securitised assets amounting to at least 30 per cent of its LCR Net Cash Outflows. 

The letter to industry can be found below:
