The European Banking Authority’s (EBA) proposed rules on slotting have come under fire from banking and real estate groups fearful of more onerous regulation. The EBA wants to standardise the slotting regime across the EU and is proposing to specify what factors should be taken into account and how they should be combined to determine the appropriate risk weights of loans.
European Banking Authority (EBA) guidelines have come under fire from the property industry, fearful they could limit how much banks could lend to real estate funds. In a joint statement issued by a number of European property associations, including The British Property Federation (BPF) and the Commercial Real Estate Finance Council (CREFC) Europe, they said the draft guidelines would classify alternative investment funds, including real estate funds, as shadow banks and subject them to lending limits.
