What lies on the horizon for Europe’s banks?
How has the pandemic affected Europe’s banks? Do they have the right tools to deal with what lies ahead?
In this episode of The ECB Podcast, our host Katie Ranger explores these questions with insights from discussions at the 2021 ECB Forum on Banking Supervision.
The views expressed are those of the speakers and not necessarily those of the European Central Bank.

How the support measures adopted during the pandemic might affect banks’ credit risk and what we, as supervisors, recommend they do to minimise it.
How the climate crisis is relevant for banks
How physical and transition risks affect banks, what the role of banks will be during the transition to a greener economy and how they are doing in assessing climate risks.
What is needed to deepen integration in the banking sector
What progress has been made in completing the banking union, how this has been affected by the pandemic crisis and what still needs to be done to deepen integration.
