Press Release: The General Board of the European Systemic Risk Board held its 35th regular meeting on 26 September

At its meeting on 26 September 2019, the General Board of the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) discussed the rising threat of protectionism and the geopolitical uncertainties that have led to a further deterioration in the outlook for growth. In this context, markets are expecting that the interest rates remain low for a prolonged period of time. As a result, financial market repricing, the balance sheet vulnerabilities of European Union (EU) financial institutions and unsustainable indebtedness remain the main risks to financial stability in the EU. The weaker economic outlook could further increase the vulnerabilities of EU financial institutions and pose a challenge to debt sustainability in the public and private sectors.
