Long term funding
Jyske Bank set up an EMTN program in 1997. The first senior unsecured public benchmark bond was issued in 2003 and Jyske Bank has since 2007 been an active player in the EMTN market. Jyske Bank has focused on issuance of senior unsecured EUR public benchmarks with regular intervals to maintain access to a diversified base of European debt capital market investors.
Jyske Bank's 2019 EMTN Prospectus includes the possibility to issue preferred senior (“PS”) notes as well as non-preferred senior (“NPS”) notes in addition to subordinated Tier 2 notes and AT1 notes. The Prospectus can be found below:
The last public benchmark in PS format was issued in November 2017 (value date in December 2017) and Jyske Bank A/S currently has three PS public benchmark bonds in the market:
- EUR 500m floating rate bond maturing June 2020 (XS1622575360) – original maturity 3 years

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 requirement
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 preferred senior (“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.
- From 2022 MREL must be fulfilled with contractually subordinated debt such as non-preferred senior (“NPS”) or capital
The MREL is set by the Danish FSA on an annual basis in December as a fixed requirement in DKKbn for the following year.
On 13 March 2020, the Danish FSA decided to release 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.
- The 2020 MREL requirement is based on banking activity REA as of end of 2018 (DKK 111bn) and the capital requirements as of 2020 (but with Pillar 2 as of end December 2018).
|MREL Requirement as set by Danish FSA from 16 March 2020
||% of 2018 Banking REA
|13.03.2020 – 31.12.2020
In the graph below all requirements have been translated to a percentage of end of 2019 Group REA of DKK 181.45bn.
What you can see from the graph is that:
- The Group is compliant both with the current requirements as well as the expected requirements and the min. 8 % MREL of total Group liabilities based on our current capital, new NPS and grandfathered PS bonds.
- The forward looking expected requirement is 27.2 % (DKK 49bn), the 8 % MREL of total liabilities is DKK 52bn and the actual requirement as of 16 March 2020 is 27.7 % (DKK 50bn) but Jyske as of end of 2019 has capital and eligible liabilities representing 32.5 % (DKK 59bn) of end of 2019 Group REA.
- The forward-looking requirement has a higher requirement for Jyske Realkredit due to the full phase in of the debt buffer. Pillar 2 increased from 2.8 % end of 2018 to 3.2 % end of 2019, which has an impact on the forward-looking expected MREL requirement for 2021. The forward looking MREL requirement for 2021 is slightly lower due to a reduction in banking activity REA from end of 2018 to end of 2019 (see table below).

issuance up to the end of 2021:
- Continued focus on the gradual replacement of old grandfathered PS with new NPS debt.
- For 2020 a total amount of approx. EUR 500m of new NPS debt issuance is expected. The issuance is expected to be in the format of one EUR 500m NPS benchmark.
- Another NPS in EUR 500m benchmark format is planned during 2021.
- Once the NPS buffer has been built up we expect to maintain annual benchmark (NPS) issuance to refinance.
- No PS issuance is planned for the short to medium term – but in principle BRRD2 should open up for the possibility to replace maybe one NPS benchmark with PS in the MREL stock. It will be up to the Danish FSA to decide whether to keep insisting on Danish banks having to fulfil the MREL requirement with at least NPS debt.
