EBF has published its response to the Basel Committee’s consultation “A framework for dealing with domestic systemically important banks (D-SIBs)”. It stresses that higher capital requirements should be complementary to supervision and resolution, which are the most effective tools in addressing systemic risk. In Europe, the fourth Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV) should satisfy any new capital requirements introduced in the D-SIBs framework, as this already foresees extra buffers for systemically important financial institutions. EBF also asks for a definition of "integrated area", similar to that for the proposed European Banking Union.(Source: EBF Response on D-SIBs)
