An Authorised FirmG using standard supervisory haircuts or own-estimate haircuts under the FCCA must calculate E* for any collateralised transaction not covered by a qualifying bilateral NettingG agreement or a qualifying cross-product NettingG agreement other than OTC DerivativeG transactions or long settlement transactions, using the following formula:

E* = max {0, [E (or EAD)(1 + HE) – C(1 – HC – HFX)]}


E* = ExposureG value after risk mitigation;

E = fair value of the ExposureG calculated in accordance with PIB section 4.9;

HE = haircut appropriate to the ExposureG ;

C = fair value of the eligible financial CollateralG received;

HC = haircut appropriate to the CollateralG , or if the CollateralG is a basket of assets, the weighted sum of the haircuts appropriate to the assets in the basket where each weight is the proportion of the asset in the basket in units of currency; and

HFX = haircut appropriate for currency mismatch between the CollateralG and ExposureG .
