- Regulation of banks — Credit — Security interest — Security issuer

The European Commission has been concerned with managing systemic risk in such settlement systems. This chapter examines the two key measures to support the stability of such systems: firstly, the Directive on Settlement finality in Payment and Securities Systems; and, secondly, the Directive on financial collateral arrangement.
