Macroprudential Bulletin

Our Macroprudential Bulletin provides insight into the work we are currently doing in the field of macroprudential policy. Our goal is to raise awareness of macroprudential policy issues in the euro area by making our ongoing work and thinking in this field more transparent, and to encourage broader discussion on these key issues.

We aren’t trying to be transparent about our work just for the sake of it. This is also an opportunity to invite you to share your views with us by sending your feedback to ecb.macroprudential.bulletin@ecb.europa.eu. You can also send us an email if you want to be notified about future issues of the Macroprudential Bulletin.

Reviewing regulatory deposit run-off assumptions for euro area banks

The March banking turmoil has raised questions about the design and calibration of the Basel framework’s liquidity coverage ratio. For institutions covered by ECB banking supervision, the March events have not resulted in significantly higher outflow rates for institutions covered by ECB banking supervision.

An indicator of effective macroprudential space

Releasable capital buffers are a tool to create macroprudential space. However, if banks use such capital to also meet other requirements, buffer releases might be ineffective. This box presents a comprehensive indicator of macroprudential space that accounts for this aspect.
