(1) Where an Authorised FirmG holds or guarantees unrated securitisation ExposureG from the most senior tranche in a securitisation, the Authorised FirmG may apply the "look through" treatment, provided the composition of the underlying pool of ExposuresG securitised is known at all times and the Authorised FirmG is able to determine the applicable risk weights for the underlying ExposuresG .
(2) An Authorised FirmG applying the look-through treatment to an unrated securitisation ExposureG , pursuant to (1), must apply to that securitisation ExposureG the weighted average of the risk weights of the underlying ExposuresG determined in accordance with the RulesG in this chapter, multiplied by a concentration factor.
(3) For the purposes of (2), the concentration factor is calculated as the sum of the nominal amounts of all the tranches in that securitisation divided by the sum of the nominal amounts of the tranches junior to, or pari-passu with, the tranche in which the position is held, including that tranche itself. The resulting weighted average risk weight must not be higher than 1000% or lower than the risk weight applicable to a more senior tranche which is rated.
(4) Where the Authorised FirmG is unable to determine the risk weights for the underlying ExposuresG in accordance with this RuleG , the unrated securitisation position will not be eligible for the relief and must be deducted from CET 1 Capital of the Authorised FirmG .
