  • PIB 4.13.13

    (1) In the case where there is a currency mismatch between the credit protection and the underlying Exposure, an Authorised Firm must reduce the amount of the Exposure deemed to be protected by applying a haircut, as follows:
    Protected portion GA = G (1 - HFX)
    where:
    (a) G = notional amount of the credit protection; and
    (b) HFX = haircut appropriate for currency mismatch between the credit protection and underlying obligation Exposure based on a ten-business day holding period, assuming daily mark-to-market.
    (2) An Authorised Firm must determine HFX in the following manner:
    (a) if the Authorised Firm uses standard supervisory haircuts, HFX is 8%; and
    (b) if the Authorised Firm uses own-estimate haircuts, it must estimate HFX according to Rules PIB A4.3.6 to PIB A4.3.26 in PIB App4 based on a ten-business day holding period, assuming daily mark-to-market.
    (3) If the credit protection is not marked-to-market daily, HFX must be scaled in accordance with PIB Rule A4.3.25.
