New prudential rules for banks and the insurance sector to become EU law

12.01.2015: The European Parliament and the Council have given their backing to three new rules designed to bolster the resilience of Europe’s banking and insurance sector. These delegated acts will help promote high quality securitisation, ensure that banks have sufficient liquid assets in testing circumstances and introduce international comparability to leverage ratios.
