Required Stable Funding
Bank regulation - funding risk
Required Stable Funding (RSF) is an input to the calculation of the net stable funding ratio (NSFR) for bank prudential management purposes.
A bank's Required Stable Funding (RSF) is calculated from its assets, weighted according to their maturity, credit quality and liquidity, together with an amount in relation to off balance sheet commitments.
Definitions for the RSF calculation generally mirror those used in the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR).
The resulting NSFR compares:
- The amount of funding which a bank needs to fund its assets and off balance sheet commitments (RSF), with
- The amount of stable funding (stable liabilities) which the bank currently has, known as the Available Stable Funding (ASF).
