Objectives of the roundtable
The session will first discuss how to address the funding gap in resolution notably for small and medium sized banks whether or not they are under the remit of the SSM and SRB. Then the session will focus on the way forward for an agreement on a eurozone liquidity facility for banks in resolution.
If time allows, the panel will assess the policy measures and necessary changes in the European institutional framework that would ensure in all Member States a smooth exit from the market in case of Failing or Likely to Fail (FOLF) small and medium sized banks that do not pass the Public Interest Assessment (PIA).
Points of discussion
- What are the main regulatory and supervisory priorities to improve the EU resolution framework for medium sized banks?
- The collapse of Banco Popular (2017) and the banking turmoil earlier this year have highlighted the need for a eurozone liquidity facility for banks in resolution: what are the challenges raised and the success factors in creating such an instrument? What should be the respective roles of the ECB, the SRB and the Eurogroup in this respect? How can we break the current political deadlock and move forward?
- What policy measures would ensure a smooth exit from the market of FOLTF small banks that do not pass the PIA in all Member States?
