Bank Resolution: The European Regime

Edited by Jens-Hinrich Binder, Dalvinder Singh


Responding to lessons learned during the global financial crisis, the EU Directive on the Recovery and Resolution of Banks and Securities Firms (Directive 2014/59/EU, the BRRD) has substantially changed the legal framework for insolvency management of financial services institutions across Europe. As the legislative process has been completed with the adoption of the BRRD, and of Regulation No. 806/2014 establishing the Single Resolution Mechanism, this book offers an insight into the new European framework for the resolution of banks in distress. This book takes stock of what has been achieved and presents an insightful analysis of both the technical framework and its impact on Banking institutions and their counterparties in representative forms of Banking activities, including retail and wholesale depositors, counterparties to financial directives, and the providers of relevant parts of the market infrastructure. Special attention is given to the international coordination of resolution. The book’s focus is on resolution and its impact on the relationships between banks, customers, other market participants, and market infrastructure, including the preventative requirements on recovery and resolution planning under the BRRD.
