This chapter presents an introduction and brief analysis of the resolution toolbox and accompanying powers found in the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD). Following an account of the key trends in the design of modern bank insolvency regimes the concept of resolution, as well as the key policy objectives of the BRRD are analysed. It then examines the conditions for resolution, and the general principles for resolution as set out by articles 32, 33, and 34 of the BRRD. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the four ‘resolution tools’ stated in articles 37–58 and the capital instruments described in articles 59–62.
