On 31 May 2016, the European Banking Authority (EBA) and the European Investment Bank Group (European Investment Bank and European Investment Fund) hosted a seminar to discuss opportunities and challenges on the role and potential use of credit guarantees and synthetic securitisation in the banking sector.
The seminar brought together supervisory and public authorities as well as industry stakeholders with an aim of providing a forum for discussing the current status of regulatory and supervisory aspects in this area.
The participants had a fruitful exchange of ideas, and expressed a commitment to work together with the aim of a transparent, prudential and predictable operational framework for such instruments. This would allow credit guarantees and synthetic securitisation structures to be used at their full potential also as EU-wide policy instruments in alleviating existing shortages in credit supply.
