Macro-prudential Policy Implementation in Europe

Programme Start Date






Application Deadline:
29/09/2021 23:59 CEST

Programme Description

Safeguarding the stability of the financial system requires more than a sound and thorough supervision of single financial institutions. The Global Financial Crisis has revealed that the mere reliance on microprudential policy tools could lead to looming systemic risks being missed or ignored. The general recognition of this gap in surveillance led to the accelerated development and implementation, throughout the world, of macroprudential policies.

Against this background, this course will first introduce the key objectives and instruments of macroprudential policy in the European context. It will then engage in more details with the implementation and use of selected macro-prudential instruments (e.g. the countercyclical capital buffer, systemic risk buffers, instruments for the real estate sector, liquidity instruments). Based on their expertise in the field, the course instructors will lastly expose participants to the lessons learned from the implementation of macroprudential policies and will ask how to apply certain tools in the non-banking financial sector.

The materials in this online Academy require approximately 16-17 hours to be completed. The exact duration for participants depends on previous experience and time devoted to each activity, including optional.
