resolution framework 2/3

The Resolution Framework exists to address the “too big to fail” problem, where the failure of a major bank could have severe systemic consequences. By establishing procedures for resolving such institutions, regulators seek to prevent taxpayer bailouts and ensure that the costs of failure are borne by shareholders and creditors rather than taxpayers.

Expected impacts of the Resolution Framework include:

1. Enhancing financial stability: By providing a clear framework for resolving failing banks, the framework aims to reduce uncertainty and systemic risk in the financial system.
2. Protecting depositors and creditors: The framework aims to ensure that depositors and creditors are protected to the greatest extent possible in the event of a bank failure.
3. Minimizing taxpayer bailouts: By requiring banks to hold sufficient capital and develop resolution plans, the framework aims to minimize the need for taxpayer-funded bailouts in the event of a bank failure.

Overall, the Resolution Framework is designed to strengthen the resilience of the banking system and reduce the likelihood and impact of bank failures on the broader economy.

A key component of the Resolution Framework is ‘Operational Continuity’, and this is an area in which our team has a specific depth of advisory and implementation experience. To find out more about ‘Operational Continuity’ please read the second part to this article.
