Individual Capital Guidance (ICG) is set by the regulator and is a firm-specific capital requirement.
Should the regulator’s SREP indicate that a firm’s risk profile requires more capital than is currently provided under Pillar 1, then they may request additional capital by setting Individual Capital Guidance.
ICG: Firm-specific capital requirements
Having undertaken a SREP on a Firm’s ICAAP, the regulator may determine that a firm’s risk profile requires additional capital over and above that determined by Pillar 1. As such, under Pillar 2, the regulator may set Individual Capital Guidance or ICG for a firm.
The purpose of ICG is to ensure that the specific risks faced by a particular firm are adequately covered by sufficient capital not prescribed in Pillar 1.
