EP Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs
MEPs from the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) voted for reforming the structure of the EU banking sector. The new rules are aiming to lead towards a more stable and resilient banking system in which the possibility for bank ruins is limited and credit to the real economy is efficiently allocated. The reform also follows to prevent public money being used to cover private losses, limit the miss-allocation of financial and human resources away from non bank sectors and the economy. According to rapporteur Arlene McCARTHY (S&D, UK), the reforming package is also aiming to limit the banks abilities to take excessive risks within ensured deposits and to reduce the inter-connectiveness between banks and the shadow banking systems.
