Date: Jul 17 - Topic: Finance & Financial Regulation

The financial crisis has highlighted the longstanding challenge of resolving large and complex financial institutions which tend to be, as the saying goes, “international in life but national in death”. While this challenge is partly addressed within the EU by the Single Resolution Mechanism and the Bank Recovery & Resolution Directive, it raises different questions at the global level. The Financial Stability Board is tackling it through ground-breaking work on “ending TBTF”, including the distinction between single-point-of-entry and multiple-points-of-entry resolution approaches and the introduction of minimum requirements for “gone-concern loss-absorbing capital” (GLAC) which are still being debated.

Speakers

  • Andrew Gracie, Executive Director for Resolution, Bank of England
  • Wilfred Nagel, Chief Risk Officer, ING Group and ING Bank
  • Waleed El Amir, Head of Group Strategic Funding, UniCredit
  • Chair: Nicolas Véron, Senior Fellow, Bruegel

Europe should not neglect its capital markets union

The European Union’s capital markets remain very underdeveloped compared to the United States. The market for equity, as measured as the size of the total market capitalisation of listed domestic firms relative to GDP, is much larger in the US and in Japan than in Europe.
