Press Release: EBA welcomes publication by the European Court of Auditors of special report on the EU-wide stress test

The European Banking Authority welcomed today’s publication by the European Court of Auditors (ECA) of a special Report on the EU-wide stress test titled “EU-wide stress tests for banks: unparalleled amount of information on banks provided but greater coordination and focus on risks needed”. The EBA acknowledged the efforts made by the ECA in providing valuable insights to improve the efficiency of the EU-wide stress test in the future.

Press Release: EBA stress tests should focus more on EU-wide systemic risks, say Auditors

The latest bank stress test by the European Banking Authority (EBA) should have been more demanding in testing banks’ resilience to systemic risks across the EU, according to a new report by the European Court of Auditors. The simulated shocks were actually milder than those experienced during the 2008 financial crisis and the adverse scenario used did not appropriately reflect all relevant systemic risks to the EU financial system, say the auditors. In addition, when designing and carrying out the test, the EBA relied heavily on national supervisors, but lacked resources and could not oversee them effectively.

Event: Sound at Last: Assessing a Decade of Financial Regulation (Brussels, 20 June 2019)

Bruegel, the Centre for Economic Policy Research, and the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics are co-hosting this event about the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis. The legacy of the crisis is stronger and better capitalized banks, as well as regulators and supervisors with increased clout who pay more attention to systemic risk. However, the crisis has also left us with high leverage in advanced economies, especially in terms of sovereign dept over GDP. At the same time, interest rates are at very low levels. All of this, together with the digital disruption of the sector, poses formidable challenges for the banking industry.

Publication: FSB Key Attributes – Executive Summary
