UniCredit SpA has received from the Single Resolution Board and Banca d'Italia the updated decision on the Minimum Requirement for Own Funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL): this supersedes the previous one communicated in December 2019, which set the MREL equal to 10.67 percent of Total Liabilities and Own Funds (TLOF) and applicable from 30 June 2022.
From 1 January 2022, UniCredit SpA shall comply, on a consolidated basis, with an intermediate MREL equal to the maximum between 20.73 percent of Risk Weighted Assets (RWA) - plus the Combined Buffer Requirement (CBR) applicable at that point in time - and a 5.90 percent of leverage ratio exposures (LRE).
From 1 January 2024, the consolidated MREL will become "fully loaded" and will be set equal to the maximum between 21.40 percent RWA - plus the applicable CBR - and 5.90 percent LRE.
Starting from 1 January 2022, UniCredit SpA will also have to comply with a subordinated MREL, i.e. to be met with subordinated instruments, equal to the maximum between 11.79 percent RWA - plus the applicable CBR - and 5.68 percent LRE. Both these amounts already take into account the "senior allowance", i.e. the possibility to meet part of the subordinated requirement with senior (non-subordinated) instruments.
All these requirements shall be met with consolidated Own Funds plus Eligible Liabilities issued by UniCredit SpA only.
