Online seminar – Debt Sustainability Analysis in Normal and Crisis Times @ FBF Online Platform
Jan 17 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Download the presentation

Accurately assessing the sustainability of debt trajectories is crucial to map sovereign vulnerabilities, to ensure financial stability and to reduce decision-makers’ uncertainty. This is valid in normal times – as part of fiscal surveillance exercises that can lead to possible early warning signals – but becomes even more relevant in crisis times – as part of the assessment that precedes the provision of financial support (such as via the Outright Monetary Transactions programme for example). Debt Sustainability Analysis (DSA) is thus subject to the classic mix of rules and discretion.

In this online seminar, held in cooperation with CEPS, Cinzia Alcidi (Senior Research Fellow and Head of Economic Policy Unit) and Daniel Gros (Director) will guide us through what constitutes state-of-the-art DSA. For this, they will elaborate on the approaches of both the International Monetary Fund and of the European Commission which they find to be complementary rather than alternative in nature. Alcidi and Gros’ presentation will include a deep-dive into two recent illustrative cases: Greece and Italy and will provide recommendations on the way forward.

Seminar organised in cooperation with the Center for European Policy Studies (CEPS)

Online seminar – Liquidity and Resolution @ FBF Online Platform
Feb 8 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Download the presentation by Dominique Laboureix

Download the presentation by Mike Hesketh

 

This online seminar will focus on the tension between liquidity and resolution. By definition, once a resolution scheme is adopted, a recapitalised bank that has absorbed losses will be solvent and should have better access to funding. However, liquidity stress is expected at the point of resolution. Given that analysts and creditors will likely require time to re-assess the financial position of the resolved bank, the return to market funding will be a slightly longer process.

Resolution authorities have a key role to play to restore market confidence and access to private market funding in case of resolution. Enhancing banks capabilities to restore liquidity at the point of resolution represents a crucial task in resolution planning activities. In some cases, a temporary public funding may be necessary when an immediate return to the market is not fully possible. In that regard, the central banks and the Single Resolution Fund would be instrumental for the success of a resolution action.
