This chapter explores bank resolution financing in the Banking Union, a project launched in 2012 as a direct response to the euro area’s crisis that began in Spain. The Banking Union is a streamlined and highly centralized regime for the supervision and resolution of all banks in the euro area and beyond, based on a novel, complex institutional set-up. The Union relies on supranational decision-making, especially with regard to the largest and most important banking institutions. The chapter assesses the Banking Union’s two-pronged institutional construction: the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) and the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM). It concludes by discussing how the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) affects resolution financing in the Banking Union.
