(1) The Company utilizes hedge accounting as defined in IFRS for issued fixed rate bonds (covered bonds) with derivatives (swaps) which hedgesfixed rates to floating and foreign currencies to Norwegian kroner.  The hedges are individually tailored to each issued bond and exactly matches thecash flows and duration of the issued bonds. Some liabilities in foreign currency are hedged with natural hedges (corresponding assets in the samecurrency and will cause the valuation change of the liabilities to be different to the valuation changes in the derivatives hedging the liabilities (therewill also be valuation differences due to the the amortization of issuance costs and when the bonds are issued at prices different from par value.)

(2) SpareBank 1 Boligkreditt AS manages its liquidity risk by refinancing its outstanding bonds ahead of expected maturities and keeping proceeds a  a liquidity portfolio. The majority of this portfolio is valued according to observed market values (fair value).  Fixed rate bonds and bonds in othe currencies than Norwegian kroner are hedged using swaps. The latter are valued according to interest rate and foreign exchange rates and are als valued at fair value (though differences may occur because the valuation of the bonds include a credit risk/spread element which the swaps do not contain).  A smaller part of the portfolio is classified as hold-to-maturity and consist of bonds in Norwegian kroner at floating rates. Included in assets in the table are also investments which are hedged with natural currency hedges,  as well as investments in short term, highly rated bonds from funds received from swap counterparties for collateral purposes. Such investments do not have a corresponding value change in the financial derivatives hedging the assets (and are also not included in the liabilities in line 1 in the table above as this contains only the Company’s issued debt securities).

(3) All derivatives are valued at fair value according to changes in market interest rates and foreign exchange rates.  Changes in valuations from the previous period is accounted for in profit and loss.

Basis swaps are currency swaps and are entered into at a certain cost (spread) between SpareBank 1 Boligkreditt and banks which offer such swaps and which have signed an ISDA agreement with the Company. Changes in the cost are valued each quarter across all of the Company's swaps in accordance with the IFRS rules.  An increase in the cost would result in an increase in the value of the basisswaps while a cost decrease would reduce the value of the basis swaps.  The effect may be material from quarter to quarter because the Company's portfolio of swaps is extensive.  All basisswap value changes will reverse over time towards the point of termination of the swaps.

IFRS 9 allows the company to present the changes in basisswapspreads below other comprehensive income. As of 01.01.2018 it will no longer be presented below the income statement. It will be presented in other comprehensive income.

Note 13 Financial Instruments at Fair Value

Methods in order to determine fair value

General
The interest rate curve that is used as input for fair value valuations of hedging instruments and hedging objects consists of the NIBOR-curve for maturities less than one year. The swap-curve is used for maturities exceeding one year.

Interest rate and currency swaps
Valuation of interest rate swaps at fair value is done through discounting future cash flows to their present values.  Valuation of currency swaps will also include the element of foreign exchange rates.

Bonds
Valuation of bonds at fair value is done through discounting future cash flows to present value.

With effect from 2009 SpareBank 1 Boligkreditt AS has implemented the changes in IFRS 7 in relation to the valuation of financial instruments as of the date of the financial accounts. The changes require a presentation of the fair value measurement for each Level. We have the following three Levels for the fair value measurement:

Level 1: Quoted price in an active market.  Fair value of financial instruments which are traded in active markets are based on the market price at the balance sheet date. A market is considered to be active if the market prices are easily and readily available from an exchange, dealer, broker, industry group, pricing service or regulating authority and that these prices represent actual and regular market transactions on an arm’s length basis.

Level 2: Valuation based on observable factors.  Level 2 consist of instruments which are not valued based on listed prices, but where prices are indirectly observable for assets or liabilities, but also includes listed prices in not active markets.

Level 3: The valuation is based on factors that are not found in observable markets (non-observable assumptions).  If valuations according to Level 1 or Level 2 are not available, valuations are based on not-observable information.  The Company has a matter of principle neither assets nor liabilities which are valued at this level.

Note 15 Asset Coverage Test

The asset coverage is calculated according to the Financial Services Act § 2-31 (Covered Bond Legislation). There is a discrepancy between the asset coverage test and the amounts in the balance sheet because for the purposes of the test mortgage loans which may have migrated above the 75% loan to value level are reduced to reflect the decrease in the value of the underlying collateral so that only a maximum loan corresponding to a value of 75% of the collateral is considered. Market values are used for all substitute collateral in the test. In addition any defaulted loans, i.e. loans in arrears at or beyond 90 days, are excluded from the test.

- The derivatives values, which are fx and/or hedges corresponding to issued covered bonds have been moved to be included in the cover pool. They were previously shown with the covered bonds. - Repurchased own bonds have been removed from the calculation

Note 16 Capital Adequacy

The primary goal for the Company’s management of capital reserves is to ensure compliance with laws and regulatory requirements and maintain solid financial ratios and a high quality credit assessment in order to best support its business.

Transitional rules have been implemented by the FSA whereby regulated financial institutions with approved IRB models will not be able to fully benefit from the results of such models. Regulated entities are allowed to reduce by 20% the total sum of risk weighted assets which would otherwise have been in place under the previous Basel I framework. The European Union has approved new regulatory requirements, CRD IV, which is implemented in Norway. The requirement of 16.3% total capital for SpareBank 1 Boligkreditt includes:

  • Minimum core equity Pillar 1: 4.5 per cent.                     
  • Additional Tier 1 equity capital 1.5 per cent. and additiponal Tier 2 capital 2.0 per cent (can be held as Tier 1 and Tier 2, alternatively as core equity capital)                            
  • Conservation buffer: 2.5 per cent core capital                            
  • Systemic risk buffer: 3 per cent. core equity                            
  • Countercyclical buffer: 2 per cent. core equity (will increase to 2.5 per cent. on 31.12.2019)                            

The Issuer has an additional Pillar 2 requirement which is 0.8 per cent. core equity capital. The total requirement for the Issuer is therefore to have capital of minimum 16.3 per cent. of risk weighted assets. With a management buffer added, the target for capital coverage is 16.7 per cent. as of year-end 2018. The Company’s parent banks have committed themselves to keep the Company’s Equity Tier 1 capital at the minimum regulatory level (in the Shareholders Agreement). Primarily this commitment is pro rata according to the ownership stakes in the Company, but it is a joint and several undertaking if one or more ownership banks are unable to comply, up to the maximum of twice the initial pro rata amount.
