The latest financial crisis underlined the need to develop a new and effective framework for resolution for entities operating in the European Union and beyond. In this context, the resolution regime has significantly advanced and resulted in the introduction of a new legislative package establishing the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM), comprising the Single Resolution Board (SRB) and National Resolution Authorities (NRAs) , within the framework of the Banking Union. The SRM constitutes one of the pillars of the Banking Union. It complements the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), the unified system of banking supervision in the Banking Union.

In this article, I focus on accounting data that provide a view of the real economic activities of the various financial institutions, providing evidence on the diversification of the financial conglomerates.  Using yearly data from the Eurozone market (plus the UK and Switzerland) over the period 1999-2014, I compute the correlations between various accounting and financial ratios of banks and insurance companies and compare them to other industries. I have found that the banking and insurance industries are positively (of net sales, gross profit, to net income), but not perfectly, correlated. Their level of correlation does not appear particularly high compared to the correlations between the banking industry and several other industries. There is room to do diversification for banks and insurance industries; especially when facing the interest rate risk.

L’objectif de cet article est de mieux comprendre l’impact que le capital-risque peut avoir sur la performance à court terme des entreprises après leur introduction en bourse. Notre échantillon est composé de 601 entreprises ayant été introduites en bourse sur les marchés nord-américains ou européens entre 2010 et 2015. Cet échantillon est composé de 204 firmes ayant bénéficié de fonds provenant de capitaux-risqueurs et de 397 entreprises n’ayant pas reçu ce genre de financement. Cette étude montre, entre autres, que la présence de capital-risque ne conduit pas à une meilleure performance comptable un an après l’introduction en bourse, même si elle s’accompagne d’une plus forte croissance des ventes chez les entreprises aidées par ce type de financement.

Real estate is a key economic sector for financial and macroeconomic stability. The sector is prone to boom/bust cycles and has been a common cause of banking crises in the past. Macroprudential authorities should therefore closely monitor developments in this crucial sector and stand ready to take policy action in case adverse developments pose a threat to financial stability. Over recent years, many EU countries have actively used macroprudential instruments to address vulnerabilities in the real estate sector. This article reviews the work of the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) concerning the residential and commercial real estate sectors and financial stability in the EU, covering both the ESRB’s analytical work and policy work.
