Members of the General Council of ECB elected Stefan Ingves, the Governor of Sveriges Riksbank, as the First Vice-Chair of ESRB for a term of five years, in line with the EU Regulation No 1092/2010. Mr. Ingves will replace Mark Carney after the end of the Mr. Carney's term of office as the BoE Governor. However, if Mr. Carney loses his status as member of the General Council of ECB at an earlier point in time, for example due to the withdrawal of UK from EU, Mr. Ingves’ term of office will commence on that earlier date.
Mr. Ingves was appointed Chair of the Toronto Center for Global Leadership in Financial Supervision in 2018. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of BIS and the Chair of that institution’s Banking and Risk Management Committee. Mr. Ingves has been a member of the General Board of ESRB since 2011 and was the Chair of the ESRB Advisory Technical Committee from its inaugural meeting in 2011 until 2017. He is also a member of the General Council of ECB, IMF Governor for Sweden, and a board member of the Nordic-Baltic Macroprudential Forum. Mr. Ingves was previously Chair of the BCBS, Head of the Monetary and Financial Systems Department at IMF, Deputy Governor of the Riksbank, and Director General of the Swedish Bank Support Authority. Prior to that he was Head of the Financial Markets Department at the Swedish Ministry of Finance.
ESRB, which is an independent EU body responsible for the macro-prudential oversight of the financial system in EU, is chaired by the ECB President Christine Lagarde. It contributes to the prevention or mitigation of systemic risks to financial stability in EU. ESRB also contributes to the smooth functioning of the internal market, thus ensuring a sustainable contribution of the financial sector to economic growth.
