EU Banking Supervision
This book provides an introduction to EU banking supervision regulations. It provides a common basis of knowledge for people working in or studying banking supervision in the EU, or those unfamiliar with parts of the broad array of banking supervision requirements and instruments. The focus is on currently applicable regulations, largely drafted before the most recent financial crisis hit, as well as those rules and regulations drafted in its wake and which are in the process of being rolled out at the date of this publication. The book cross-links banking supervision with related subjects, such as crisis management, financial stability and monetary policy, payment systems, company law, and bankruptcy law. This overview serves both those who currently need to make decisions on banking supervision and those with a business, scientific, or social interest in banking supervision. It provides the necessary background to assess how proposed legal amendments would fit into the existing supervisory map. In essence, the book contains what author Roel Theissen would have liked to know himself - or to have had easy access to - when starting work in this area. Learning by doing (the personal experience of the author) often means that practitioners know a lot about 'their' subject, but little about other subjects that are equally important to achieve the wider goals of banking supervision. The book will be useful for new entrants, as well as for experts, providing an overview of the full picture of banking supervision.
