The current methodology used to determine the SRF contributions is difficult to replicate, overly complex and not fully coherent with the remainder of the resolution framework and capital requirements.
The Single Resolution Fund (SRF) needs to provide the necessary funding for resolutions, avoiding the need to bail out banks with taxpayers’ money. The SRF relies on the banks that are part of
the Banking Union to collect the funds.
This study proposes an
alternative methodology that could potentially address the challenges
with the current SRF contribution methodology. The alternative
methodology reduces and simplifies the number of indicators used, as well as the number of contributors. Additionally, the proposed alternative
methodology significantly reduces the number of risk-adjusted
contributors and is more aligned with other bank requirements.
