new eu financial regulation proposals October 21, 2009

Posted by Bradley in : financial regulation , trackback

The EU Commission has published a Communication on derivatives regulation (the link is to the draft version). And there’s a new Communication on Cross-Border Crisis Management in the Banking Sector, focusing on early intervention, resolution and insolvency, which raises a number of interesting questions, for example about how to address issues of the rights of shareholders in failing banks and how to ensure integrated treatment of multinational corporate banking groups in insolvency. Views are sought by January 20, 2010. The Communication is 18 pages long, and there’s a 53 page working document and a 74 page impact assessment. These 140 or so pages are distilled into a 2 page citizens’ summary which seems to be more about PR (we’re doing something) than about trying to solicit meaningful comments from the public.
