OSFI Announcement on Non-Qualifying Capital Instruments

OSFI has announced:

Media are invited to participate in a briefing via teleconference with the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) on two Advisories relating to BASEL III: Treatment of non-qualifying capital instruments under Basel III and Non-Viability Contingent Capital.

Mark White, Assistant Superintendent, Regulation Sector, will provide a brief overview and will be available to answer questions.

Media who wish to participate must confirm their attendance with LĂ©onie Roux, Communications and Consultations.

Please note that all details are subject to change. All times are local.

DATE: Friday February 4, 2011
TIME: 4:00 PM
PLACE: 613-960-7518 (Ottawa)
Participant pass code: 725300

Update, 4:21pm: Good old OSFI, hopelessly incompetent and secretive as always!

I notified Ms. Roux of my intent to participate and was answered with:

Good afternoon,
Please note that today’s conference call is for media only.

A separate conference call is being set up for analyts and investors that may wish to participate.

The conference call will take place on Monday morning at 11:30AM, an advisory will be issued shortly.

I responded:

I represent media via my blog at http://www.prefblog.com

No response. So I called in at about 4:01pm and got some fragments of seemingly random open-mike buzz.

OSFI has deleted the original advisory and replaced it with one that does not include a telephone number or pass code.

OSFI: The dumbest shits on the planet.
