Macroprudential Policy Implementation in Europe

Registration Deadline: 26 September 2018

  • General description

    Safeguarding the stability of the financial system requires more than a sound and thorough supervision of single financial institutions. The Global Financial Crisis has indeed revealed that the mere reliance on microprudential policy tools could lead to looming systemic risks being missed or ignored. The general recognition of this gap in surveillance led to the accelerated implementation, throughout the world, of macroprudential policies.

    Against this background, this course will first introduce the key objectives and instruments of macroprudential policy in the European context. It will then engage in more details with the implementation and use of selected macro-prudential instruments (e.g. the countercyclical capital buffer, systemic risk buffers, instruments for the real estate sector, liquidity instruments). Based on their expertise in the field, the course instructors will lastly expose participants to the lessons learned from the implementation of macroprudential policies and will ask how to apply certain tools in the non-banking financial sector.

  • Topics covered

    • Macroprudential policy framework, objectives and instruments
    • Implementation challenges (e.g. calibration, cross-border effects, leakages, transmission)
    • The use of capital-based instruments (e.g. countercyclical capital buffer, structural buffers, risk weights)
    • The use of asset-based instruments, in particular for the real estate sector
    • The use of liquidity instruments (e.g. liquidity coverage requirements. net stable funding ratio, loan-to-deposit ratio)
    • Macroprudential policy beyond banking
