Conference dates

09 May 2024 - 10 May 2024




The Bank Guarantee Fund (Polish deposit insurer and resolution authority) organizes the conference on crisis management in the EU financial system entitled: Crisis management in the financial system – stairway to heaven or highway to hell?

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: Crisis events are an inherent element of the financial system. They may destabilize it in a systemic or idiosyncratic sense. However, it is crucial to have appropriate mechanisms for managing crisis situations and be properly prepared for the usage of such mechanisms. They constitute essential contribution into stabilizing the financial systems. The experience of the global banking crisis, which started in 2007, led to numerous changes in the functioning of the crisis management in the financial system around the world and in the European Union, including in Poland. In 2024, 10 years will have passed since the adoption of the BRR and DGS Directives, which clarified the rules for conducting anti-crisis activities in the EU banking sector. At the same time, 2024 will mark 10 years since the Financial Stability Board published guidelines on the operation of an effective resolution system for insurance and reinsurance undertakings and central counterparties (CCP). In the light of the experience of the Bank Guarantee Fund in the field of crisis management in the financial sector, the above anniversaries are an ideal moment to discuss the lessons learned from the functioning of the crisis management system in the EU, as well as further directions of its development. Constructive dialogue in this area seems to be particularly important now. In the EU the work in underway on the revision of the crisis management and deposit insurance framework (the so-called CMDI reform). At the same time, the development of the resolution system for CCPs in being finished and negotiations on the IRR Directive take place, which is to introduce the resolution framework to the EU insurance sector.
