  • FSB: Thematic peer review of resolution regimes

    14/08/2012
    The objective of this first peer review in this area is to evaluate FSB member jurisdictions’ existing resolution regimes and any... planned changes to those regimes using “key attributes” set out in FSB’s November 2011 paper as a benchmark. The objectives of the review are to: take stock of national resolution regimes that apply to different types of financial institutions, and of any planned changes to those regimes; highlight good practices in national resolution regimes as well as any material inconsistencies or gaps; evaluate progress in implementing reforms to national resolution regimes using the key attributes as a benchmark, and identify challenges arising from their implementation and identify clarifications or revisions to the essential criteria and/or explanatory notes. The primary source of information for the peer review will be member jurisdictions’ responses to a questionnaire which asks for general information about recent experiences with the resolution of systemically significant or critical financial institutions and details on national implementation (or planned implementation) of the key attributes in resolution regimes across different sectors. The deadline for feedback is 28 September 2012.

    10/08/2012
    This discussion paper sets out detailed ideas on how LIBOR could be comprehensively reformed in order to deal with the issues... identified and restore confidence in the rate.

The Wheatley Review has been tasked with reporting by the end of “the summer so that any immediate recommendations can be taken forward to be included in the Financial Services Bill (which is currently being considered by HoL). The aim is for findings to be presented by the end of September – responses to this paper are required by 7 September 2012.
