Systemically Important Bank

From ACT Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search


A bank whose disorderly failure would, because of its:

(i) Size,

(ii) Complexity, and

(iii) Systemic interconnectedness

cause significant disruption to the wider financial system and to economic activity in its (main) country or region of operation.

For this reason, SIBs are subject to more stringent regulation and capital adequacy requirements than other institutions.
