Consultation Document: Pre-positioning for Open Bank Resolution (OBR)1
 
INTRODUCTION
1.1
 
Background
1
 
The Reserve Bank is consulting registered banks on pre-positioning banks’ systems toensure compatibility with the Open Bank Resolution (OBR) policy. This represents animportant step in a government wide process to fully operationalise the OBR policy, asnoted in the statement from the Minister of Finance on 11 March 2011.2
 
An open bank resolution is an option whereby the bank is open for (full-scale or limited)business on the next business day after its temporary closure following an insolvencyevent or an event that triggered putting it under statutory management, and is abletoprovide customers with full or partial access to their accounts and other bank services.

Recent international developments in the field of bank resolution have focussed onenhancing authorities’ capacity to respond and resolve large or systemic failures withoutstraining fiscal resources. One of the key lessons emerging from that crisis is thepotentially enormous fiscal costs associated with supporting troubled banks. Somegovernments that chose to guarantee their banking system’s liabilities are now faced witha sizeable public debt burden. The alternative is to make bank shareholders and creditorsshoulder the losses of a failing bank whilst ensuring that the payments system continuesto function. Developing alternative solutions for dealing with failing banks has thusbecome a key priority for many governments and the global regulatory community.4
 
OBR is intended to act as a resolution tool that puts the cost of bank failure primarily onthe bank’s shareholders and creditors rather than the taxpayers, minimises moral hazardand provides continuity of core banking services. The Reserve Bank developed the OBRpolicy following a review of its crisis management policies and instruments subsequent tothe 1997 Asian financial crisis.

Significant work has been undertaken in recent years to ensure that the structures of financial institutions in New Zealand and the payments system are consistent with theimplementation of OBR as a live policy option. Major Reserve Bank policies such as

Whilst the Reserve Bank has led the development of the technical aspects of the policy,the OBR itself is a wider government initiative. To this end, the Treasury is separatelyengaged in work to consider the appropriate form for government guarantees that will berequired to support the on-going operations or any institution that is subject to the OBRprocess.were designed to facilitate theimplementation of OBR. The pre-positioning of banks’ internal systems represents thenext stage in that implementation process.

Consultation
7
 
Section 2 of this consultation paper contains a high level overview of the OBR. Thissummary is included as a reminder of the policy and the processes involved. TheReserve Bank has previously consulted on the policy (known at the time as Bank CreditorRecapitalisation). As such, while the Reserve Bank always welcomes relevantsubmissions, at this stage the focus of this consultation is not on whether there should bean OBR policy, rather the focus is on the pre-positioning requirements of the OBRpolicy.8
 
We are interested in beginning a dialogue with relevant banks on the appropriateapproach for their bank to the pre-positioning of banks’ internal systems to ensure thatOBR can be implemented within the necessary timescales to achieve an effective openbank resolution. Section 3 of the paper discusses the Reserve Bank’s proposed approachand outlines the nature of engagement that it expects to have with registered banks.Section 4 then sets out the specific outputs that the pre-positioning exercise is designed toachieve, and asks respondents to provide initial views on the likely costs that may beassociated with any necessary system modifications/upgrades.9
 
In this paper we have identified a number of specific questions upon which we areseeking the banks’ views. We expect to have more detailed engagement as the processdevelops. However, stakeholders are encouraged to identify, and comment on any areasthat they consider are likely to be relevant to achieving the outputs set out in section 4.
