The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has released a new set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) to clarify the regulatory capital treatment of investments in overseas deposit-taking and insurance subsidiaries.

APRA says the FAQs are relevant to authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs) that hold these investments via holding companies and confirm that ADIs can use the indirect equity investment provisions in Prudential Standard APS 111 Capital Adequacy: Measurement of Capital (APS 111) to determine the capital treatment for these exposures.
