Revised liquidity risk management framework for NBFCsQuick read

Source: Monthly Policy Review, PRS

RBI issued final guidelines on the asset-liability management and liquidity coverage ratio framework for non-banking financial companies (NBFCs)

Aim of Liquidity risk management  framework

The liquidity risk management framework aims to ensure adequate liquidity (NBFC’s capacity to meet unexpected cash and collateral obligations without incurring unacceptable losses). This is done through high-quality liquid assets (assets that can be readily sold or converted to cash, or used as collateral to obtain funds in the situation of stress). 

Existing framework

The existing framework includes:

  • Governance measures (such as the composition of a risk management committee) and 
  • Maturity profiling (measuring cash flows at different time buckets), among other measures.

Liquidity Coverage Ratio

  • The revised guidelines have also introduced the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) as an added measure for liquidity risk management for certain categories of NBFCs. 
  • LCR is the ratio of the stock of high-quality liquid assets to the total cash outflows of the NBFC, for a period of 30 days. 
  • As per the guidelines, all public deposit taking NBFCs and non-deposit taking (with an asset size of Rs 5,000 crore and above) will have to maintain a minimum LCR, in order to sustain acute liquidity stress scenarios (stress lasting for 30 days).

Minimum LCR requirements





Category I NBFCs

Category 1 NBFCs include all deposit-taking NBFCs and non-deposit taking with an asset size of Rs 10,000 crore and above. 

Category 2 NBFCs 

Category 2 NBFCs include non-deposit taking NBFCs with an asset size between Rs 5,000 crore and Rs 10,000 crore. (These requirements would be binding on the NBFCs from December 1, 2020.)

  1. One more important aspect is that if you are an older person, travel insurance regarding pensioners is something that is important to really consider. The more aged you are, greater at risk you will be for having something poor happen to you while in most foreign countries. If you are not really covered by quite a few comprehensive insurance, you could have a few serious complications. Thanks for giving your suggestions on this web blog.

  2. I’ve learned many important things as a result of your post. I would also like to say that there may be a situation where you will have a loan and don’t need a cosigner such as a Fed Student Support Loan. But when you are getting that loan through a standard banker then you need to be ready to have a co-signer ready to allow you to. The lenders are going to base any decision using a few components but the largest will be your credit ratings. There are some lenders that will as well look at your work history and come to a decision based on this but in many cases it will hinge on your ranking.
