This chapter analyses the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive and how it is applied to banks and investment firms alike. The BRRD establishes an improved resolution framework to be implemented among the member states of the European Union. The scope of its application is broader than most bank resolution regimes, since in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, it became abundantly clear that the failure of an investment firm could do just as much damage to the financial system as the failure of a deposit taking bank. The chapter considers the legal framework governing the interaction of the EU Resolution Fund, the European Stability Fund, and the contributions of member states in resolving an EU bank.
