    BoE Holds off on Liquidity BES; UK Joins Sustainable Finance Platform

    February 03, 2021

    BoE has decided that it will not restart the 2019 liquidity Biennial Exploratory Scenario (BES) exercise. In March 2020, BoE paused the 2019 liquidity BES to alleviate burdens on core treasury staff at the participating banks. BoE uses the BES to explore the potential impact of risks that are not covered by the annual solvency stress tests of large UK banks. The 2019 test focused on how banks would respond to a severe liquidity stress. Insights from the liquidity BES have already helped to shape aspects of the BoE’s response to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, HM Treasury announced that UK has joined the International Platform on Sustainable Finance (IPSF).

    The UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak underscored the commitment of UK to strengthening international cooperation on environmentally sustainable finance by becoming a signatory to the Joint Statement on the IPSF. UK will contribute to the goals of IPSF to scale up the mobilization of private capital toward environmentally sustainable finance at the global level and promote integrated markets for environmentally sustainable finance, in an effort to deliver on the domestic and international commitments to tackle climate change. IPSF is a multilateral forum of dialog between policymakers that focuses on initiatives in the areas of taxonomies, disclosures, standards, and labels, which are fundamental for investors worldwide to identify and seize investment opportunities that truly contribute to climate and environmental objectives. IPSF aims to exchange and spread information to promote best practices in environmentally sustainable finance; identify barriers and opportunities to help scale up environmentally sustainable finance internationally; and enhance international coordination on sustainable finance issues, while respecting national and regional contexts.
