Financial Stability and Prudential Supervision
We support competent authorities in their efforts to strengthen the stability of the financial system and accelerate financial sector development. We focus on micro-prudential supervision to ensure the soundness and stability of the banking sector. We consider the relevance of the insurance sector for the overall stability of the financial system. When supporting development of supervisory capacities, our attention goes to the harmonization of regulation with international and European standards. In the sphere of ensuring financial stability, we address building a sound macro-prudential framework and toolkit; identify, assess, and address systemic and sector-specific risks; and do the assessment of policies. Learning opportunities address new trends, such as climate, geopolitical, or cyber security risks and their implications on the financial sector.
In addition to the planned work with the community of banking regulators and supervisors, which includes online activities and conference meetings, we will provide various other learning opportunities. Building on the success of our online courses on cyber risk security supervision, we are pleased to announce the transition of this online course to a face-to-face format. This will give us the opportunity for even more interaction and group work on practical cases. The workshop on anti-money laundering for banking supervisors, which has achieved considerable success in previous online iterations, will this year also be delivered face-to-face. Additionally, we are introducing a longer and more intensive workshop on quantitative methods in credit risk management. Regarding banking resolution, we will tackle resolution plans and will take a special look at minimum requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities. In the field of financial stability and macroprudential policy, we will continue with our workshop on financial stability and stress testing. To complement more technical topics, we will also address other aspects, such as data visualization.
