    SRB Outlines Work Priorities and Progress on Recent Resolution Cases

    April 04, 2022

    The Single Resolution Board (SRB) published a bi-annual reporting note to the Eurogroup and signed new cooperation arrangements with the authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    The bi-annual reporting note contains updates to Eurogroup on the recent resolution cases, outlines the SRB progress and priorities in 2022, and provides an update on the Single Resolution Fund (SRF), including the common backstop and the SRB consultation process on ex-ante contributions to the SRF. Below are key highlights of these developments:

    • Recent Resolution cases—SRB adopted the decisions to resolve the Slovenian and Croatian subsidiaries of Sberbank to protect financial stability and avoid disruption to the Croatian and Slovenian economies, whereas SRB didn’t take any resolution action for the Austrian parent of Sberbank, as it was not considered to provide critical functions to the economy. The SRB’s decisions achieved the resolution objectives, in particular the objective of safeguarding financial stability, to protect public funds and depositors, and ensure the continuity of critical functions.
    • SRB priorities for 2022—The priorities for 2022 include resolution planning, resolvability assessment, transfer tools, separability and adjustments of minimum requirement of own funds and eligible liabilities (MREL) for such transfer tools, operationalizing the Single Point of Entry, and further enhancing MREL policy and final MREL targets.
    • SRF and Common Backstop—SRB remains committed to the introduction of the common backstop to the SRF in early 2022 and expects all national procedures to be finalized to introduce the common backstop as soon as possible. SRB also launched a consultation on 2022 ex-ante contributions to the SRF, which gives banks and credit institutions the opportunity to view the SRB’s preliminary decision on their calculation prior to its adoption and to comment on aspects pertinent to the calculation exercise.

    In a separate development, SRB signed new cooperation arrangements with two authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, including both the Banking Agency of Republika Srpska (BARS) and the Banking Agency of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBA). The arrangement was made on the exchange of information and cooperation in connection with the resolution planning and the implementation of such planning for entities with cross-border operations.
