Cross-Border Effects of Banking Resolution: The Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive and the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) under Scrutiny


After the European Parliament agreed in its last session on 15 April 2014 to the Recovery and Resolution Directive and to the Regulation on a Single Resolution Mechanism, there are no further obstacles to the entry into force of both texts. They will give the resolution authorities in EU Member States the power to bail-in creditors of EU banks and investment firms by reducing their debt instruments to zero or by converting these instruments into equity capital. It will also be possible to transfer any liabilities of EU banks and investment firms to a purchaser, to a bridge institution or to an asset management vehicle. The powers of the resolution authorities extend to contracts, bonds and derivatives governed by foreign law, concluded with foreign counterparties and held by foreign investors.

This conference will try to consider the far-reaching consequences.
