FPC: Financial Policy Committee

The Bank of England’s Financial Policy Committee (FPC) has been established to lookout for risks and weaknesses across the financial system, since “a healthy financial system is a key part of a successful economy” (BOE).

Meeting at least quarterly, the FPC sets out their assessment of risks and weaknesses in the financial system and the measures it is taking to address them and publishes this within their Financial Stability Report twice each year.

FPC: Financial Policy Committee

The Bank of England’s Financial Policy Committee (FPC) is responsible for setting the UK’s Countercyclical Capital Buffer Rate (UK CCyB or CCB for short). The UK CCyB rate is the Countercyclical Capital Buffer rate that applies to UK exposures of banks, building societies and large investment firms incorporated in the UK.

For more information on the current UK CCyB Rate, view our section on the Current UK CCyB Rate.

How does the FPC determine the UK CCyB Rate?

When the FPC looks to determine the appropriate UK CCyB rate, it takes into consideration a number of ‘core indicators’ including:

o Data on Sectoral Capital Requirements (SCR);

o Data on Countercyclical Capital Buffer (CCB or CCyB); and

o Housing Tool Data on Loan to Value (LTV) and Debt-service to Income (DTI) Limits
