Federal Council adopts amendment of Ordinance on Liquidity of Banks

November 22, 2017

During its meeting on 22 November 2017, the Federal Council adopted an amendment of the Ordinance on the Liquidity of Banks. Once the new provisions enter into force on 1 January 2018, particularly smaller financial institutions will benefit from an easing in terms of the liquidity coverage ratio (LCR). In contrast, the introduction of the net stable funding ratio (NSFR), which was originally planned for 1 January 2018, has been postponed. The Federal Council will reconsider the matter at the end of 2018.
