Leverage ratio and client clearing

The purpose of this discussion paper is to initiate debate on the potential impact on client clearing of the leverage ratio’s non-recognition of initial margins received by clearing members from their clients in derivatives transactions. It opens the way for a possible revision of the leverage ratio, to allow for IM offset in the calculation of exposures.
