Progress on the Banking Union?

Briefing 27-01-2023

While the Eurogroup did not agree on concrete steps towards the completion of Banking Union, its June 2022 statement does entail some elements that the forthcoming Commission proposals could build upon, making improvements to the crisis management and deposit insurance framework that eventually bring the completion of the Banking Union closer.

A special treatment for certain types of investments, such as green investments, in the European fiscal framework may be justified on the ground that there are priority objectives such as the future health of the planet. An “investment clause”, less restrictive than the existing one, can be envisaged for projects that are co-financed, financed or guaranteed by the European Union or by European Union Institutions, such as the European Investment Bank.

In July 2021, the European Commission tabled a proposal to establish a new EU authority to counter money laundering and the financing of terrorism (AMLA). This was part of a legislative package aimed at implementing the 2020 action plan for a comprehensive Union policy on preventing money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

This paper points to new multifaceted and often interconnected sources of risks (including high-impact tail risks) and the challenges posed to supervisory actions. It also makes the important case that traditional risk management tools might face limitations in the current situation. We discuss both geopolitical and related risks as well as other risks in the context of rising interest rates and a volatile macroeconomic environment. The challenge for banks will be to be prepared for such extreme ...

This study discusses recent and current conditions relating to financial stability in the euro area, develops, in particular, on the impact of the current ‘inflation crisis’ on financial stability vulnerabilities, and addresses two related priorities for the Single Resolution Board (SRB).

The Banking Union will likely face several risks in the near future, ranging from geopolitical risks to shadow banking risks and the phasing out of Covid-19 support. Such risks might also affect the Single Resolution Board and its priorities. This paper discusses the key short-term risks and analyses how the SRB can be impacted regarding resolution planning, the failing or likely to fail determination, public interest assessment and resolution action.
