  • PIB 3.13.12

    For the purposes of PIB Rule 3.13.7(e), an Authorised Firm must calculate holdings of its own CET1 Capital instruments on the basis of gross long positions subject to the following exceptions:

    (a) an Authorised Firm must calculate the amount of holdings of own CET1 Capital instruments in the Trading Book on the basis of the net long position, provided the long and short positions are in the same underlying Exposure and the short positions involve no Counterparty Credit Risk;
    (b) an Authorised Firm must determine the amount to be deducted for indirect holdings in the Trading Book that take the form of holdings of index Securities by calculating the underlying Exposure to own CET1 Capital instruments included in the indices; and
    (c) an Authorised Firm must net gross long positions in own CET1 Capital instruments in its Trading Book resulting from holdings of index Securities against short positions in own CET1 Capital instruments resulting from short positions in the underlying indices, including where those short positions involve Counterparty Credit Risk.
