IBFed responds to FSB consultative document on effective resolution of SIFIs -05/09/11

IBFed has responded to a background note on shadow banking, which was published by the Financial Stability Board (FSB).
We noted that the form of the shadow banking system is closely linked to regulation and measures which directly regulate the shadow banking system may have potential implications for liquidity and the proper functioning of markets. We also recommended policy principles that should be recognised in pursuing the regulation of shadow banking. The principles are that measures (1) Promote proper functioning of markets, (2) Reduce the likelihood of duplication, (3) Minimize economic impacts, (4) Promote a level playing field, (5) Enhance transparency, (6) Target regulatory supervision, and (7) Support financial stability.The IBFed letter is available here.


IBFed writes to FSB – 12/04/11 

IBFed has written to the Financial Stability Board (FSB) setting out thoughts on the current status of the implementation of the G20 regulatory reform agenda.  In the letter, IBFed offers support for the overarching objectives of the regulatory reform programme and the continuing efforts of the FSB to coordinate its implementation.  We call for the FSA to prioritise work on those reforms most important for near-term financial stability.  The letter also welcomes the FSB’s efforts to promote consistent implementation of standards via its programme of peer reviews and thematic reviews, noting that level playing field is vital to prevent regulatory arbitrage.
