Review of the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR): Updated rules on supervision of central counterparties (CCPs)

10-01-2020

The increasing importance of central counterparties (CCPs), and challenges such as the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU, call for a more comprehensive supervision of CCPs in EU and non-EU countries to secure financial market infrastructure and build confidence. In June 2017, the Commission proposed amendments to Regulation (EU) No 1095/2010 (ESMA – European Securities and Markets Authority) and Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (EMIR – European Market Infrastructure), to strengthen the regulatory ...

The increasing importance of central counterparties (CCPs), and challenges such as the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU, call for a more comprehensive supervision of CCPs in EU and non-EU countries to secure financial market infrastructure and build confidence. In June 2017, the Commission proposed amendments to Regulation (EU) No 1095/2010 (ESMA – European Securities and Markets Authority) and Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (EMIR – European Market Infrastructure), to strengthen the regulatory framework. Under the proposals, EU CCPs would be supervised by national authorities in agreement with ESMA, and third-country CCPs subject to different requirements depending on whether (or not) they are systemically important. Following trilogue negotiations, Parliament voted on the resulting agreement at its plenary session of 18 April 2019. The final act was signed on 23 October 2019 and entered into force on 1 January 2020. Third edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Fonds de garantie relatif aux actions extérieures et mandat de prêt extérieur de la BEI

31-01-2018

En septembre 2016, la Commission européenne a proposé des modifications au règlement relatif au Fonds de garantie relatif aux actions extérieures et à la décision accordant une garantie de l'Union à la Banque européenne d’investissement (BEI) en cas de pertes résultant de prêts et de garanties de prêts en faveur de projets réalisés en dehors de l'Union (mandat de prêt extérieur). L’accord sur ces propositions, conclu au terme de huit mois de négociations en trilogue, doit être soumis à un vote de ...

Synthetic securitisation: A closer look

22-06-2016

In September 2015, the European Commission adopted two legislative proposals: one that aims to develop an EU-wide framework for simple, transparent and standardised (STS) securitisations, and another that aims to make the capital treatment of securitisations for banks and investment firms more risk-sensitive by amending the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). While the European Commission did not include synthetic securitisations in the STS scheme, it left open the possibility for some of them ...

In September 2015, the European Commission adopted two legislative proposals: one that aims to develop an EU-wide framework for simple, transparent and standardised (STS) securitisations, and another that aims to make the capital treatment of securitisations for banks and investment firms more risk-sensitive by amending the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). While the European Commission did not include synthetic securitisations in the STS scheme, it left open the possibility for some of them to be included at a later stage. Similarly, while synthetic securitisations in general do not benefit from a different prudential treatment under the CRR, the Commission proposed that a specific category of synthetic transactions should – under specific conditions – benefit from an equivalent regime. The European Banking Authority (EBA), the Council of the EU and the European Central Bank (ECB) have all given their views on the matter and the debate has yet to conclude, as the two proposals are under discussion in the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs. The question of synthetic securitisations benefiting from a specific regime carries opportunities (by broadening the market for originators and freeing up capital to finance the real economy, notably SMEs) as well as risks, depending on the synthetic securitisation used and the final framing of the regime. Hence, this briefing gives a general introduction to the subject and outlines the positions of the Commission, the Council, the EBA and the ECB.

How Relevant Are the New Elements in the 2016 Stress Test Design?

08-06-2016

This note focuses on the elements of novelty that characterise the 2016 stress test, based on the methodological notes released by the European Banking Authority, and discusses in closer detail the following key aspects: • the request for specific forecasts concerning “conduct risk”; • the greater attention towards risks originated by foreign exchange exposures; • the lack of a “pass/fail” threshold that partitions tested banks into “safe” and “unsafe” ones; • and the change in the sample size ...

Tester la résilience de l'Union bancaire

25-04-2016

Le présent "rapport sur le coût de la non-Europe" examine la solidité du cadre de l'Union bancaire selon différents scénarios de crise et détermine le coût de l'absence de nouvelles actions européennes dans ce domaine.

Le présent "rapport sur le coût de la non-Europe" examine la solidité du cadre de l'Union bancaire selon différents scénarios de crise et détermine le coût de l'absence de nouvelles actions européennes dans ce domaine. Selon l'étude, les gains potentiels apportés par un renforcement de l'Union économique et monétaire seraient considérables en cas de nouvelle crise financière ou de nouvelle crise de la dette publique. L'étude conclut que le cadre réglementaire actuellement proposé pour l'Union bancaire présente des lacunes concernant les réserves et les ressources prévues pour neutraliser l'incidence systémique d'une nouvelle crise. Le rapport démontre notamment que même si l'architecture de l'Union bancaire prévue pour 2023 était déjà en place à ce jour, des opérations de sauvetage financier à la charge du contribuable européen seraient dans cette éventualité encore nécessaires. Les coûts d'un choc financier de moyenne ampleur dans la zone euro équivaudraient à une perte cumulée du PIB de 1 000 milliards d'euros (soit environ -9,4 % du PIB), à la destruction de 1,91 million d'emplois et à une augmentation de la dette publique de 51,4 milliards d'euros. En supposant qu'un tel choc survient tous les dix ans en moyenne, les coûts annualisés se monteraient potentiellement à environ 100 milliards d'euros de perte de production par an et à la suppression de 190 000 emplois par an. La mise en œuvre de mesures à l'échelle de l'Union permettrait de réduire considérablement la probabilité de chocs financiers et de limiter leur incidence sur l'économie réelle. Ce rapport sur le "coût de la non-Europe" attire l'attention sur les faiblesses de l'architecture actuelle de l'Union bancaire et recense des choix stratégiques pour y remédier.

Virtual currencies: Challenges following their introduction

22-03-2016

Virtual currencies began creating controversy soon after their launch. The nature of virtual currencies is difficult to apprehend, the underlying technology is complicated, their operations are conducted in a decentralised way, and they are almost unregulated. No-one can predict if a particular virtual currency may become a direct competitor for existing currencies in the distant future, or if it might just collapse overnight. What is certain, however, is the high level of volatility demonstrated ...

Virtual currencies began creating controversy soon after their launch. The nature of virtual currencies is difficult to apprehend, the underlying technology is complicated, their operations are conducted in a decentralised way, and they are almost unregulated. No-one can predict if a particular virtual currency may become a direct competitor for existing currencies in the distant future, or if it might just collapse overnight. What is certain, however, is the high level of volatility demonstrated by today's market leader, Bitcoin. This raises questions concerning the possible impact of virtual currencies on a number of sensitive fields. It appears that there is little, if any, influence expected on monetary policy, or on the stability of the financial system. However, some danger might arise for payment systems, including reputational damage for systems which are not directly exposed to virtual currencies. The most problematic field is consumer protection, as there are no safety nets, such as deposit guarantee funds, available to alleviate losses. Extending prudential supervision to virtual currencies might be difficult, if not impossible, so most regulators are now pondering how to regulate the points of contact between virtual currencies and fiat money, i.e. where one is exchanged for the other. The Paris terrorist attacks in late 2015 have revived interest in virtual currencies, as there is a growing fear that they could be used with criminal intent. The European legal framework will be adapted to take the terrorist threat into account.

European Deposit Insurance Scheme: Completing the Banking Union

14-03-2016

As part of its ambition to complete the Banking Union, the European Commission proposes the introduction of a European Deposit Insurance Scheme (EDIS), in order to reduce the potential spill-over risk of local bank failures on the financial stability of the economic and monetary union as a whole. According to the proposal of 24 November 2015, the EDIS would be the third pillar of the Banking Union and be introduced gradually, in three separate phases between 2017 and 2024, complementing national ...

As part of its ambition to complete the Banking Union, the European Commission proposes the introduction of a European Deposit Insurance Scheme (EDIS), in order to reduce the potential spill-over risk of local bank failures on the financial stability of the economic and monetary union as a whole. According to the proposal of 24 November 2015, the EDIS would be the third pillar of the Banking Union and be introduced gradually, in three separate phases between 2017 and 2024, complementing national deposit guarantee schemes. It also has implications for the overall resolution framework for banks under the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) so the Commission proposes to amend the SRM Regulation (EU) No 806/2014, introducing a common deposit insurance system as of 2024. In parallel, the Commission published a communication proposing additional measures for risk sharing and risk reduction in the banking sector. These include ensuring adequate loss-absorbing resources for banks and measures to improve the comparability of risk-weighted assets.
