Real Estate

Decisions

The Bank introduced a new macroprudential measure (on the basis of art. 458 CRR) for exposures to Belgian residential real estate exposures of IRB banks. The measure enters into force on 30 April 2018 and runs until 29 April 2020.

The measure imposes an increase in the risk weights of the relevant exposures in order to increase the resilience of the banking sector and to discourage excessive risk-taking by banks in the RRE market.
