The advanced approaches rules introduce the 1.25 multiplier to capture the correlation of financial institutions’ common risk factors. The formula for these wholesale exposures is described in section 131 of the revised regulatory capital rules. Schedules H, I, and J: Internal models methodology (IMM) margin period of risk and specific wrong-way risk: The proposed insertion of memorandum items in Schedule H (Wholesale Exposure: Eligible Margin Loans, RepoStyle Transactions, and OTC Derivatives with Cross-Product Netting), Schedule I (Wholesale Exposure: Eligible Margin Loans and Repo-Style Transactions No Cross-Product Netting) and Schedule J (Wholesale Exposure: OTC Derivatives No Cross-Product Netting) reflects the new capital requirements for the margin period of risk and wrong-way risk in the advanced approaches. The revised advanced approaches rules introduce an increased margin period of risk of 20 days. In addition, for OTC derivative transactions, repo-style transactions, and margin loans that exhibit wrongway risk, the advanced approaches rules require a banking organization to apply an increased capital requirement rather than the IMM to these exposures. The calculations and requirements associated with margin period of risk and wrong-way risk are described in section 132 of the revised regulatory capital rules. Schedules B and R: Summary table and equity exposures: The proposed revisions to Schedule B (Summary Riskweighted Assets Information for Banks) reflect the proposed changes to the schedules described above in this section III.B. In addition, the revised advanced approaches rules remove the prior money market fund approach for equity exposures. Accordingly, in proposed revised Schedule R (Equity Exposures), the agencies propose to remove this approach. agencies expect all reporting entities to meet the existing reporting standards for accuracy and other requirements as currently mandated by their primary federal supervisor. See section I.B of this notice for a detailed discussion of the timing for the implementation of the proposed reporting changes. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Valerie J.
