Legal requirements on disclosure of credit institutions and investment firms have been enhanced with the European implementation of Basel III, more specifically the Directive 2013/36/EU (Access to the activity of credit institutions, the prudential supervision of credit institutions and investment firms, “CRD IV”) as well as the Regulation EU No. 575/2013 (Prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms, “CRR”), and became effective on January 1, 2014.
Part 8 of the CRR requires institutions to disclose a set of qualitative and quantitative statutory information among others with respect to own funds and own funds requirements, the risks incurred, the risk management processes applied, the methods used for credit risk mitigation, encumbered and unencumbered assets, securitization transactions and information on remuneration at least on an annual basis.
