This online Bank Resolution Academy will foster a deep and comprehensive understanding of the bank resolution rules and procedures among public authorities, practitioners and academics. This 3-week online Academy is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their knowledge on bank resolution, and to put in practice many of its preparatory elements via ‘learning by doing’.
On top of providing an overview on the EU resolution framework, including the revised BRRD and the SRMR, on the resolution objectives and principles and on the resolution process, the Academy’s instructors will seize this occasion to take a deep dive into recovery and resolution planning. The online Academy combines self-paced progression moments (with pre-recorded lectures) and live online activities. It also includes multiple instructor-led occasions for participants to work in groups (in breakout rooms) in more technical aspects such as MREL/TLAC and valuation scenarios, but also in broader terms with a simulation exercise of a resolution process.
Particular emphasis is also put on the sources of resolution financing, including access to external public sources and the direct link between resolution and state aid. Finally, this FBF Bank Resolution online Academy will also foster a dialogue on the future challenges for the EU resolution framework, including the much-desired ESM reform.
