European Banking Supervision, Six Years On
On November 4, 2014, the European Central Bank (ECB) took over the licensing authority for all banks in the euro area; direct prudential supervision of the area’s most significant banking groups, now representing over €21 trillion ($25 trillion) in total assets; and oversight of supervision by national authorities of thousands of less significant banks, representing an additional €4.7 trillion in total assets. This session will provide the opportunity to take stock of this major reform endeavor with the ECB’s most senior bank supervisory official.
