    The 'swallow or be swallowed' game between stock exchanges continues. The focus of attention has shifted to the Nordic countries, with the OMX Group getting its turn in the global integration of exchanges. This coincides with completion of the merger between parent companies of the London and Milan stock exchanges.

    The Ministry of Finance has set up a working group to consider how systemic risks threatening the stability of the financial system and the economy as a whole could be identified and prevented. The work is guided, for example, by the principles adopted in the Government programme and the recommendations issued by the European Systemic Risk Board on national macroprudential arrangements.

    Bank of Finland Research Discussion Papers 29/2015

    We investigate how European banks’ overnight borrowing costs depend on bank size. We use the Eurosystem’s proprietary interbank daily loan data on euro-denominated transactions from 2008-2014. We find that large banks have had a clear borrowing cost advantage over small banks and that this premium increases progressively with the size of the bank. This result is robust with respect to subsamples, subperiods, time aggregation, and control variables such as Tier 1 capital ratio and rating. During episodes of financial stress, the size advantage becomes several times larger. However, we also find evidence that the new recovery and resolution framework for banks may have slightly reduced the borrowing cost advantage of larger banks in Europe.

    Suomen Pankki. Rahoitusmarkkinaraportti 2
    Useat Euroopan maat ovat rahoituskriisin kokemusten seurauksena rajoittaneet tai aikeissa rajoittaa arvopapereiden lyhyeksimyyntiä. Lyhyeksimyynnin suorien rajoitusten hyödyistä ei kuitenkaan ole juuri empiiristä näyttöä.

    Finanssikriisin seurauksena Euroopan arvopaperimarkkinoilla on käynnistetty useita sääntelyhankkeita. Osassa hankkeista saatetaan voimaan uutta sääntelyä ja osassa tarkistetaan jo voimassa olevia määräyksiä.

    Arvopaperistamisen volyymien kasvu on kääntänyt myös Euroopassa huomion toiminnan sääntelyyn ja sääntelyn modernisointiin.

    Luotettavan ja tehokkaan eurooppalaisen vähittäismaksamisen varmistaminen on ollut vahvasti esillä viime aikoina. Huolenaiheina on nostettu esiin mm. Euroopan laajuisten maksamisratkaisujen puute sekä ei-eurooppalaisten toimijoiden hallitseva asema markkinoilla. Lisäksi on nähty, ettei yhtenäisen euromaksualueen kaikkia mahdollisuuksia ole vielä pystytty täysimääräisesti hyödyntämään.

    Journal of Payments Strategy & Systems 4 (Winter 2020)
    Changing consumer expectations are shaping the retail payments market at the global level. Within the European Union, the renewed regulatory framework, the revised Payment Services Directive, gives a further boost by fostering innovation and com-petition in the European retail payments market. In this evolving payment landscape, assessing the current state and forecasting potential development paths may benefit from a look at the past.This paper reviews past developments, discusses potential regulatory implications, and outlines a vision of future developments in the European retail payments market. It concludes that an evolutionary path is more likely than a revolutionary one. Regarding the future regulatory framework for retail payments, it proposes that the movement from entity-based towards more activity-based regulation should be continued.

    Kolmisen vuotta sitten, marraskuussa 2016, Euroopan järjestelmäriskikomitea varoitti Suomea asuntomarkkinoihin liittyvistä keskipitkän aikavälin haavoittuvuuksista – erityisesti kotitalouksien suuresta ja kasvavasta velkaantuneisuudesta. Varoitus on yhä aiheellinen. Komitea suosittelee nyt muun muassa, että Finanssivalvonnan johtokunnalle annetaan lainsäädännössä nykyistä enemmän keinoja torjua kotitalouksien velkaantumisesta aiheutuvia riskejä.

    Nordic Economic Policy Review
    The global financial crisis has led to extensive regulatory reforms around the globe. The bail-in rules introduced in the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive are an essential part of the new bank crisis management landscape in Europe. The paper seeks to clarify their implications and applicability in three ways. First, we provide a concise overview of the issues involved based on recent – mainly theoretical – literature. Second, we describe the key features of the European resolution framework. Third, we discuss the implications of the bail-in approach for crisis management in the Nordic context.

    Revue de l'OFCE
    Empirical evidence shows that a financial distress, faced by a bank or the whole economy, might cause large-scale withdrawals of deposits even when bank deposits are protected by deposit insurance, implicitly or explicitly guaranteed by a government. Building on Kiema and Jokivuolle (2015), we present a new model of such partial bank runs. In our model withdrawals are caused by the fear that both the bank and the government's deposit guarantee might fail in the future. Our focus is on a guarantee rather than on insurance, since the assets of deposit insurance funds might not be sufficient in large-scale systemic crises. Guarantee failure is possible because, being sovereign, the government may choose not to keep its promises. This option causes a fixed welfare cost (e.g. a reputational cost), which in a sufficiently severe crisis may be smaller than the costs from deposit guarantee payments. We also assume that, being welfare-maximizing, the government recapitalizes the bank during the early stage of the bank run. When decisions concerning deposit guarantee payments are made, recapitalization costs are already sunk costs, but the partial bank run has reduced the coverage costs that the remaining deposits might cause for the government. In this way, the depositors who withdraw funds during a partial bank run decrease the danger of a deposit guarantee failure and increase the incentives of the remaining depositors to keep their deposits in the bank. We apply our framework to the European Deposit Insurance Scheme (EDIS), and we view the reliability of the Single Resolution Fund and its backstop as the counterpart to the reliability of the government's promises. It turns out that in an asymmetric shock that affects only a single eurozone country, the EDIS improves bank stability, but its effects might be ambiguous in a systemic crisis that affects the whole Banking Union.

    A research paper on contagion in the interbank money market shows that in 2010 contagion negatively affected 40% of European banks on average. A bank's central position in the interbank network is particularly important in explaining the level of contagion, while a bank's size is a considerably less significant explanatory factor.

    This paper contributes to the discussion on the measurement of banking sector output.It is also a prelude to discussion on possible causes of productivity change in banking.We demonstrate how the banking sector's service production can be measured using aggregate financial statement and payment transactions data.We compute banking sector labour productivity Tornqvist indices for six countries (Finland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy) over a period varying from 11 to 20 years.According to the results, Finnish banking sector productivity has improved via a substantial reduction size of labour force, whereas output growth has been rather modest.Although in most of the other countries the restructuring process has been less intense, most of the sectors studied have improved in terms of overall output and labour productivity, especially since the mid-1990s. Key words: banks, service production, productivity JEL classification numbers: D24, G21

    Banking union is one of the most important and urgent current EU projects. The aim of efforts to enhance banking supervision, bank crisis resolution and deposit insurance is to improve the stability of the financial markets and ensure broader involvement of creditors.

    To promote the Single Euro Payments Area, Finnish banks published a SEPA implementation and migration plan on 15 March 2006. This national migration plan presents an overview of what transferring to a single payments area will mean to Finns. The plan is posted on the websites of banks, the Finnish Bankers Association, and the Bank of Finland.9
