Systemically Important Financial Institutions (SIFIs)

Following the package of measures approved by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to address the "Too big too fail" (TBTF) problem, at the Cannes Summit on November 4 2011, the G-20 endorsed a comprehensive framework to reduce the risks posed by Systemically Important Financial Institutions (SIFIs).  These policy measures are primarily the result of two consultation documents which the FSB published jointly with the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) in July 2011.

This publication outlines the key policy initiatives relating to global SIFIs, with a focus on global systemically important banks (G-SIBs), and provides initial thoughts on what these measures might mean for clients.
