Event Description

“Banks live globally but die local”, as described by former Bank of England Governor Marvin King, banking activities are increasingly globalized beyond national borders, while legal frameworks remain separate and distinct at the sovereign level including banking licenses, deposit insurance, and insolvency laws. In the wake of the global financial crisis, international discussions arose toward ending the Too-Big-to-Fail (TBTF) issue. This led to the establishment of international standards for bank resolution, notably “Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institution” (Key Attributes). The purpose of this seminar is to give an overview of the post-financial crisis international debate over the cross-border banking resolution and analyze the remaining issues and challenges for effective cross-border bank resolution.
