MREL and the introduction of Non-Preferred Senior (“NPS”) debt in the Danish insolvency regime
The Danish Act No. 706 was adopted by the Danish Parliament on 8 June 2018 and became effective retroactively from 1 January 2018. The bill has created a new layer of creditors (holders of Non-Preferred debt) in the Danish insolvency regime for banks via an amendment to the Danish Act implementing Article 108 of the European Bank Recovery & Resolution Directive (BRRD). The new class of debt, Non-Preferred Senior (“NPS”), is positioned between ordinary senior claims (§97 in the Danish Bankruptcy Act, “Konkursloven”) and subordinated debt (§98 in the Danish Bankruptcy Act). Existing senior unsecured debt will remain ordinary senior claims (”simple krav”) which will rank ahead of NPS debt. Existing senior unsecured debt will in the future be referred to as Preferred Senior (“PS”) debt to distinguish between the two asset classes.
The Act No. 706 also contains a new debt buffer requirement for Danish SIFI mortgage institutions to be fulfilled by 2022: The debt buffer for mortgage institutions must be above 2% of total unweighted loans and the sum of the group’s capital requirement, debt buffer requirement and bail-inable liabilities (“the combined requirement”) must be above 8% of the group’s total liabilities.
Jyske Banks MREL requirements
The Jyske Bank Group’s MREL comprises of:
- Banking activity requirement
- Mortgage activity requirement
Banking activity requirement
- 2 x solvency requirement (loss absorption + recapitalisation) incl. all buffer requirements (counter cyclical buffer not double up)
- Calculated on the basis of REA for banking activities only
Mortgage activity requirement:
- Capital requirement (loss absorption) and the debt buffer for mortgage institutions which must be 2% of total unweighted mortgage loans
- The sum of the group’s capital requirement, debt buffer requirement and bail-inable liabilities must be above 8% of the group’s total liabilities and own funds (TLOF)
- Group capital that is utilised towards the mortgage bank’s capital and debt buffer requirements is not eligible to count towards the MREL requirement
- The 8% requirement must be fulfilled by 2022
The regulatory constraint will be the highest of the 8 % requirement and the combined requirement (MREL for banking activities + capital requirement for mortgage activities + mortgage debt buffer)
All PS debt issued prior to 1 January 2018 (with a residual maturity > 1 year) is grandfathered and eligible for the MREL requirements until end of 2021.
When the MREL requirement came into force in Denmark 1 July 2019 the Danish FSA stated that from 2022 MREL should be fulfilled with contractually subordinated debt such as non-preferred senior (“NPS”) or capital.
Up to and including 2020 the MREL was set by the Danish FSA on an annual basis in December as a fixed requirement in DKKbn for the following year.
The 2020 MREL requirement was based on banking activity REA as of end of 2018 (DKK 111bn) and the capital requirements as of 2020 (except for Pillar II which was 2.8 % as of end of December 2018)
On 13 March 2020, the Danish FSA decided to reduce the countercyclical buffer from 1 % (planned to increase to 2 % by the end of 2020) to 0 % with effect from 16 March 2020 as a response to the impact of the Corona virus on the Danish economy. A new MREL requirement was set with effect from 16 March 2020:
|MREL Requirement as set by Danish FSA for 2020
||% of 2018 Banking REA
|13.03.2020 – 31.12.2020
The implementation of the BRRD II rules in Danish legislation (no later than December 28, 2020) will impose a lower requirement for subordination than today. The expected subordination reduction was implemented in Denmark already on 1 May 2020 by the Danish FSA to reduce the need for NPS issuance from Danish banks in the light of COVID-19.
From 2021 the MREL will be set by the Danish FSA on an annual basis as a percentage (%) of banking REA. The percentage will remain fixed for the following year, but the actual requirement in DKKbn will be dynamic (an increase in banking REA will increase the MREL requirement and vice versa). If the capital requirements change (e.g. a reintroduction of the countercyclical buffer) the FSA will set a new MREL requirement in percentage of banking REA. Variations in Pillar II will not automatically trigger a new MREL requirement.
Jyske’s 2021 MREL requirement has been set by the Danish FSA in the Autumn of 2020 as 30.3 %. of banking REA:
26.3 % (hereof 22.3 % subordinated) +4 % (CET 1 combined buffer requirement) .Thus based on Q3 2020 figures:
- Total MREL requirement for 2021 is DKK 32bn
- The subordination requirement is DKK 28bn
- The PS allowance constitutes approximately DKK 4bn as:
the upper limit for subordination in the
BRRD2 is set at the highest of:
- 2 x the solvency requirement plus 1 x the combined buffer requirement (DKK 28bn)
- 8 % of banking TLOF (DKK 22bn)
Based on Q3 2020 banking REA the 8 % of Group TLOF is currently the constraint (highest requirement) representing DKK 52bn end of Q3 2020, whereas the combined requirement (MREL for banking activities + Jyske Realkredit capital requirement and debt buffer) represents DKK 50bn. But the difference is minor and everything else being equal the 8 % requirement will not necessarily be the highest in the future (new regulation driven increase in REA) versus loan portfolio growth and growth in overall balance sheet items.
Please use this link to see a graph which illustrates the MREL requirement for 2021 and the expected 8 % requirement for 1 January 2022
Funding plans (PS and/or NPS) 2021:
- The BRRD2 subordination cap on the MREL requirement (for banking activities) applicable from 1 May 2020 opens up for issuance of DKK 4-5bn of PS debt.
- Assuming full subordination of the 8 % of TLOF from 2022 (except the banking activity related MREL subordination cap), we estimate that our need for MREL debt instruments by 1 January 2022 will be an outstanding amount of MREL eligible NPS & PS instruments of around DKK 16bn (EUR 2.1bn) :
- DKK 11-12bn (~EUR 1.6bn) NPS debt
- DKK 4-5bn (~EUR 0.6bn) PS debt.
During 2021 Jyske Bank therefore expects to issue around:
- ~EUR 600m in PS format (including one EUR 500m PS benchmark)
- ~EUR 300m in NPS format (most likely to be issued in Nordic currency/currencies)

Their capital capacity as additional Tier 1 is gradually phased out according to the CRR Grandfathering rules but according to article 63 of the CRR they subsequently gain Tier 2 status under the CRR.
