Principles for the supervision of financial conglomerates – final report

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 25, 2012

“The Joint Forum’s final report on Principles for the Supervision of Financial Conglomerates provides a set of principles which supersedes the compendium of principles on this topic developed in 1999 and published in 2001 by the Joint Forum (‘the 1999 Principles’). These updated principles are a broader and more consolidated set of internationally agreed principles. They include guidance for policymakers on the powers and authority necessary for supervisors of financial conglomerates. They also focus on supervisory responsibility and guidance for supervisors on the governance, capital, liquidity and risk management frameworks of financial conglomerates. Importantly, these updated principles are structured in a manner that should facilitate their implementation across jurisdictions and over time.”
