FSB hosted a virtual workshop as part of the consultation process for its evaluation of the too-big-to-fail reforms. FSB has published the workshop agenda and the related presentation documents, one of which is the presentation given by Claudia Buch on the preliminary findings of the too-big-to-fail evaluation. Claudia M. Buch is the Vice President of Deutsche Bundesbank and Chair of the FSB evaluation working group on the effects of too-big-to-fail reforms. Ms. Buch highlighted that the indicators of systemic risk and moral hazard have moved in the right direction post the reforms but there are still gaps that need to be addressed.
Ms. Buch highlighted that capital ratios of systemically important banks increased by more than those of other banks but their profitability has fallen relative to other banks, reflecting higher capital, lower risk, and higher funding costs. Moreover, the complexity of global banks remains high. Overall, the implementation of resolution reforms has progressed and stakeholders consider resolution to be more credible. However, there are still gaps to be addressed. Obstacles to resolution can be reduced further, as state support for failing banks has continued and resolution of central counterparties is work in progress. In addition, information transparency and monitoring can be enhanced. All stakeholders would benefit from closing information gaps. Risks from shift to non-bank financials also need to be monitored.
As part of its program to examine the effects of post-crisis financial reforms agreed by G20, FSB is carrying out an evaluation of too-big-to-fail reforms for banks. The evaluation is being chaired by Ms. Buch and is assessing whether the implemented reforms are reducing the systemic and moral hazard risks associated with systemically important banks. It is also examining the broader effects of the reforms to address too-big-to-fail for systemically important banks on the overall functioning of the financial system. In June 2020, FSB consulted on a report setting out the preliminary results of the evaluation. The deadline for providing feedback on the consultation report is September 30, 2020. This recent virtual workshop included presentations and discussions by a range of academic, regulatory, non-governmental organization and industry stakeholders on the analysis and findings of the evaluation. The workshop and the written responses to the consultation will inform the final evaluation report, which will be published in early 2021.
