On June 25, 2015, the European Systemic Risk Board published a report on misconduct risk in the banking sector. The report analyses misconduct risk in the banking sector from a macroprudential angle and makes the following recommendations: (i) prudential and conduct regulators should continue to impose requirements on banks that limit the opportunities for misconduct; (ii) coordination and transparency between regulators at an international level should be improved, including preparation of a set of principles for authorities to follow where action against a bank in one jurisdiction may have systemic implications in another jurisdiction; (iii) extension of the legal entity identifier scheme to a wider range of counterparties so that banks can determine which entities are subject to financial sanctions; (iv) the European Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process taking into account the systemic impact of potential misconduct; and (v) inclusion of potential misconduct risks in future EU-wide stress tests.
