The EACT has addressed a letter to the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision concerning the ongoing review of the leverage ratio. We discuss the impact of the leverage ratio on cash pooling structures commonly used by non-financial companies and request the Committee to reconsider the rules so that these companies can continue to use both notional and physical cash pooling solutions.
