    FSB Outlines Upcoming Work Deliverables, Assesses Crypto-Asset Risks

    February 17, 2022

    The Financial Stability Board (FSB) published a report that assesses the financial stability risks posed by crypto-assets. The report examines developments related to crypto-assets as well as the associated vulnerabilities in three segments of crypto-asset markets: unbacked crypto-assets (such as Bitcoin), stablecoins, and decentralized finance/other crypto-asset trading platforms. The report highlights wider public policy concerns related to crypto-assets, such as low levels of investor and consumer understanding of crypto-assets, money laundering, cyber-crime and ransomware. In a separate development, FSB published a letter to the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors that lays out the planned policy work during 2022, a large part of which involves addressing climate risks.

    The policy work for the year will involve supporting financial market adjustments to a post-COVID world, reinforcing financial system resilience, harnessing the benefits of digitalization, and addressing financial risks from climate change. The letter presents a complete list of FSB deliverables to the G20 in 2022. By July 2022, FSB plans to deliver the interim report on COVID-19 exit strategies to support equitable recovery for financial stability and scarring effects and the annual progress report on climate roadmap. Then, by October 2022, FSB plans to publish the following:

    • Annual report on promoting global financial stability
    • Final report on COVID-19 exit strategies to support equitable recovery for financial stability and scarring effects
    • Report on policy proposals to address systemic risk in nonbank financial intermediation
    • Best practices for reporting cyber incidents to financial authorities
    • Annual report on implementation of the cross-border payments roadmap
    • Key performance indicators to monitor progress toward the quantitative targets for the cross-border payments roadmap
    • Final report on regulatory and supervisory approaches to addressing climate-related financial risks 
    • Joint report with NGFS on the outputs of climate risk scenario analysis by jurisdictions
    • Progress report on achieving consistent climate-related financial disclosures 
    • Progress report on the regulation, supervision, and oversight of global stablecoins
