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.

MREL & 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. All PS debt issued by Danish banks prior to 1 January 2018 will be grandfathered and eligible for the MREL requirements until the end of 2021. From 2022 MREL must be fulfilled with contractually subordinated debt (NPS debt or capital).

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 and planned NPS issuance

Jyske Bank’s final MREL was set by Danish FSA in February 2018 based upon 2016 YE balance sheet.

It comprises of:

  • Banking activity requirement
  • Mortgage activity requirement

Banking activity requirement

  • 2 x solvency requirement incl. all  buffer requirements corresponding to 28.1% of REA ex mortgage activities
  • DKK 33bn as per end-2016

Mortgage activity requirement:

  • The debt buffer for mortgage institutions must be 2% of total unweighted mortgage loans

Group requirement:

  • 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
  • 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 MREL will be set by the Danish FSA on an annual basis (a fixed requirement in DKKbn):

  • In the autumn of 2018 the MREL requirement for 2019 will be set based on 2017 REA (DKK 188bn).
  • In the autumn of 2019 the MREL requirement for 2020 will be set based on 2018 REA (including the countercyclical buffer of 1 % which is implemented in Denmark during Q1-Q3 2019).

As of end of Q3 2018 Jyske Bank already fulfills MREL (with old PS bonds and capital).

Jyske Bank will gradually replace the existing PS debt with MREL eligible instruments (NPS notes) from 2nd half of 2018 until end of 2021:

  • Total expected NPS issuance during the period 1H 2018 until end of 2021 is EUR 2.5bn.
  • As of December 2018 NPS bonds equivalent to EUR 670m have been issued.
  • Jyske Bank expects to remain active in the EUR market with one annual EUR 500m benchmark in NPS format from 2019-2021.
  • From 2022 and onwards annual EUR issuance activity in the NPS format (EUR 500m benchmark) is also to be expected
  • No PS issuance is expected in the short to medium term. Long-term the need for PS will depend on the structural development in bank deposits and bank loans.

Please see below a conservative illustration of the expected MREL requirement and the new debt buffer requirement for the Jyske Bank Group based on the following assumptions:All components presented as a percent of  Q3 2018 Group REA.

  • Fully implemented SIFI and capital conservation buffer.
  • Incl. of the 1 % counter-cyclical buffer to be implemented during 2019 (0.5 % from Q1 2019 and 0.5 % from Q3 2019)
  • Incl. of the full 2 % debt buffer in Jyske Realkredit.
  • Jyske Bank’s latest EUR 500m 3 year NPS issued end of November 2018 is included in “Current capital and eligible liabilities”.

 

As the Group has a relatively large proportion of bank loans the expected “combined requirement” and not the 8 % requirement will be the constraint.

As of end of September 2018 the Group still has a buffer of 2.4 % of REA (DKK 4.4bn) to the expected “combined requirement” of 27.6 % of Group REA (DKK 50.4bn).
