Bank Competition and Financial Stability

image of Bank Competition and Financial Stability

This report examines the interplay between banking competition and financial stability, taking into account the experiences in the recent global crisis and the policy response to it. The report has been prepared by members of the Directorate of Financial and Enterprise Affairs at the OECD in Paris for the G20 Workshop “The New Financial Landscape."

To reduce this perception, policy reforms must include provisions for the orderly failure of financial institutions, whatever their size, level of interconnectivity and complexity.
