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 micro-prudential 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 of macroprudential policy as well as the use and interaction of their instruments in the European and global context. It will then engage in more details with the implementation and use of selected macroprudential 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 walk participants through the lessons learned from the implementation of macroprudential policies,set out the need for tools for non-banking financial sector and generally entice participants to form their own views on the implementation challenges of macro prudential policy.
The course will take 22 hours to be completed
Gain an overview of the type, scope and use of macroprudential instruments
Become familiar with the institutional framework, objectives and instruments of macroprudential policy in the European Union
Learn to apply certain macroprudential instruments in real-life cases
