Policy brief

(this publication also exists in German)

“A well-designed and effective structural reform is one of the most important measures to safeguard financial stability, ensure the effectiveness of the new resolution and supervision mechanisms, and to refocus banks on their core activity of lending to the real economy.

Therefore the Commission’s proposed Regulation should be on top of the Council and new Parliament’s agenda.”
