Initiatives

Banking networks have expanded across national borders establishing potential linkages of international risk spillovers. The increased perception of this development led to the formation of research initiatives with the aim to provide insights on this matter and to connect researchers interested in this field. Policy initiatives have been established to manage policy instruments handling the increasing risk potential of internationally active banks. The “InterConnectedness Newsletter” provides news and information on recent developments regarding research on financial networks. It also lists events, such as meetings, workshops and conferences on the subject and presents novelties concerning the scientific community and research networks


Research Initiatives

With the increased volume of cross border claims and internationally growing banking networks over the last decades and the increased perception of this development as a potential source of systemic risk and contagion effects, research initiatives formed aiming at providing insights on this matter and connecting researchers interested in this field.

 

Policy Initiatives

The European System of Financial Supervision (ESFA) consists of three supervisory authorities: the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), and the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA). Those three authorities were established on 1 January 2011. They are independent European authorities and they are accountable to the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament, and the European Commission. The European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) complements this framework.
