On April 16 and 17, 2015, the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors held their second meeting under Turkish presidency in Washington, DC. Further to the meeting, a communiqué was published which detailed the conclusions of the group as well as its goals for the future. The G20 stated, amongst other things, that (i) the commitment remains to finalize the total loss absorbing capacity standard for global financial institutions by November 2015; (ii) gaps in the recovery and resolution of CCPs will be identified and addressed; (iii) the G20 roadmap for the regulation of shadow banking is being implemented; and (iv) that cross-border cooperation will be enhanced to ensure more effective regulations, particularly for resolution and OTC derivative market reforms. The G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors will meet again in September 2015. The next G20 summit is in November 2015.
