Bank board members must be personally liable for mistakes and banks' riskier trading activities must be clearly separated from their more conservative lending ones, said MEPs on Wednesday, in a resolution setting out Parliament's priorities for a broad overhaul of EU banks.
The non-legislative resolution, an input to Commission proposals due in September, also stresses the need for more competition in the banking sector and for further reform of banks' remuneration and corporate governance structures.
The resolution, adopted by 528 votes to 87 with 73 abstentions, identifies core principles for structural reform.
Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
