SSM and SRB accountability at European level: What room for improvements?

06-04-2020

This paper discusses the accountability mechanisms for the SSM and SRM. Both mechanisms’ frameworks have the potential to provide strong political, administrative and legal accountability, but also present shortcomings at the level of practice, coordination, organisation and transparency. The paper identifies those and proposes some ways forward.

Covered bonds – Issue and supervision, exposures

24-01-2020

Covered bonds are debt securities issued by credit institutions and secured by a pool of mortgage loans or credit towards the public sector. They are characterised further by the double protection offered to bondholders, the segregation of assets in their cover pool, over-collateralisation, and their strict supervisory frameworks. Currently, their issuance is concentrated in five Member States. National regulatory regimes vary widely in terms of supervision and composition of the cover pool. Lastly ...

Covered bonds are debt securities issued by credit institutions and secured by a pool of mortgage loans or credit towards the public sector. They are characterised further by the double protection offered to bondholders, the segregation of assets in their cover pool, over-collateralisation, and their strict supervisory frameworks. Currently, their issuance is concentrated in five Member States. National regulatory regimes vary widely in terms of supervision and composition of the cover pool. Lastly, despite benefiting from preferential treatment under the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR), they share no common definition, which can lead to different securities benefiting from this treatment. To remedy this, the Commission has adopted proposals for, on the one hand, a directive, which would lay down investor protection rules and provide common definitions, and on the other, a regulation, which would amend the CRR with regard to covered bond exposures. Parliament voted in plenary on 18 April 2019 to adopt the texts agreed in trilogue. After linguistic corrections, Parliament approved corrigenda and the two acts were signed on 27 November 2019. Third edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Prudential requirements and supervision of investment firms

15-01-2020

Investment firms play an important role in capital markets, facilitating savings and investment flows across the EU. However, the current EU rules are seen as fragmented, overly complex, inconsistently applied and often a poor fit for the actual risks taken by the various types of investment firms. The Commission proposed a new regulation on the prudential requirements of investment firms and a new directive on the prudential supervision of investment firms. These proposals update the framework for ...

Investment firms play an important role in capital markets, facilitating savings and investment flows across the EU. However, the current EU rules are seen as fragmented, overly complex, inconsistently applied and often a poor fit for the actual risks taken by the various types of investment firms. The Commission proposed a new regulation on the prudential requirements of investment firms and a new directive on the prudential supervision of investment firms. These proposals update the framework for investment firms, making it more effective and more closely calibrated to the size and nature of the various investment firms and their risks. Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) agreed its report and negotiating mandate on 24 September 2018. On 20 March 2019, provisional agreements were reached by Parliament and Council negotiators. Parliament adopted the texts at first reading on 16 April 2019. Following linguistic corrections, corrigenda were endorsed by Parliament in October, and the regulation and directive were adopted by the Council then signed into law on 27 November. Both will apply in full from 26 June 2021. Second edition of a briefing originally drafted by David Eatock. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Which supervisory or regulatory treatment of banks’ exposures to sovereign risks?

21-11-2019

In his answer to the European Parliament (EP), Commission’s Executive Vice-President designate V. Dombrovskis explained that “It is necessary to encourage banks to diversify further their sovereign bond portfolios and reduce the home bias, which remains far too strong and leaves banks overly exposed to the fiscal distress of their home government. I do not underestimate the political, legal and technical complexity and sensitivity of these issues across the EU and their financial stability implications ...

In his answer to the European Parliament (EP), Commission’s Executive Vice-President designate V. Dombrovskis explained that “It is necessary to encourage banks to diversify further their sovereign bond portfolios and reduce the home bias, which remains far too strong and leaves banks overly exposed to the fiscal distress of their home government. I do not underestimate the political, legal and technical complexity and sensitivity of these issues across the EU and their financial stability implications, so it will be essential to develop a consensus both in the European Parliament and with the Member States”. This briefing takes stock of where the Banking Union stands in terms of sovereign exposures, home bias and concentration risks, as well as international regulatory developments (Section 1). The 2018 EP Banking Union report and the 2016 Council roadmap conditioned the adoption of an EU Regulatory Treatment of Sovereign Exposures (RTSE) to international standards to be worked out by the Basel Committee. Absent international regulatory progress, this briefing presents ways to address sovereign risks under the existing supervisory and regulatory framework (Section 2). It also provides an insight into various options identified by the European Banking Authority (EBA), the Basel Committee, the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) (Section 3) that might be coupled with other developments, including on a European deposit insurance scheme (EDIS) (Section 4). The issue is currently discussed in the Eurogroup High Level Working Group on EDIS, expected to report back to the European Council by end 2019.

Towards a fundamental re-design of Banks’ Stress Tests in the EU?

04-10-2019

On 26 September 2019, Andrea Enria, Chair of the European Central Bank’s Supervisory Board, gave a speech on the future of stress testing (“The future of stress testing – realism, relevance and resources”) in which he outlined a proposal on how to achieve meaningful progress with a view to make the tests both more realistic and more relevant, with fewer resources required. Andrea Enria’s proposals involve a decisive re-design of the stress test exercise. Stress tests are currently carried out using ...

On 26 September 2019, Andrea Enria, Chair of the European Central Bank’s Supervisory Board, gave a speech on the future of stress testing (“The future of stress testing – realism, relevance and resources”) in which he outlined a proposal on how to achieve meaningful progress with a view to make the tests both more realistic and more relevant, with fewer resources required. Andrea Enria’s proposals involve a decisive re-design of the stress test exercise. Stress tests are currently carried out using a “constrained bottom-up approach” whereby supervisory authorities ensure a quality check of models run by banks. It is suggested to split stress tests into a supervisory view (“top-down” approach along the lines of stress tests under Dodd-Frank in the US) and a “banks’ view” (bottom-up approach).

On the back of a number of high profile cases and alleged cases of money laundering, this briefing presents current initiatives and actions aiming at reinforcing the anti-money laundering supervisory and regulatory framework in the EU. This briefing first outlines (1) the EU supervisory architecture and the respective roles of European and national authorities in applying anti-money laundering legislation that have been further specified in the 5th AML Directive and (2) ways that have been proposed to further improve the anti-money laundering supervisory and regulatory frameworks, including the 12 September 2018 Commission’s communication, the changes to the European Supervisory Authority (ESA) Regulation adopted by the co-legislators on the basis of a Commission proposal and the most recent Commission’s state of play of supervisory and regulatory landscapes on anti-money laundering. Some previous AML cases are presented in Annex. This briefing updates an EGOV briefing originally drafted in April 2018. On a more prospective note, this briefing also presents (3) some possible additional reforms to bring about a more integrated AML supervisory architecture in the EU. In that respect, President-elect U. von der Leyen’s political declaration stresses the need for further action without specifying at this stage possible additional supervisory and regulatory developments: “The complexity and sophistication of our financial system has opened the door to new risks of money laundering and terrorist financing. We need better supervision and a comprehensive policy to prevent loopholes.”
