ERM Glossary: Banking book


[this page | pdf | references | back links]

The banking book of a bank is not defined as such in the EU’s Capital Requirements Directive and Capital Requirements Regulation. Instead, it can be derived as the part of the bank’s overall book of exposures that is not part of its trading book. Please note that within the banking book may be positions that fall within the scope of ‘available for sale’ and the regulatory treatment of such exposures can differ from other exposures in the banking book.
