Comparative Analysis: SIFIs – Too Big to Fail

November 15, 2011
As European financial institutions come under increasing scrutiny and pressure, attention has been focused on how regulators will work with these institutions to address current financial challenges. In this regard, Tom Vartanian, Bob Ledig and Gordon Miller have prepared a comparative analysis of the approaches to the resolution of large, complex financial institutions under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which was adopted by the U.S. Congress in July 2010, and the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board for national recovery and resolution planning, which were endorsed by the G-20 in November 2011. The analysis appears as part of a larger study, “SIFIs – Too Big to Fail?” in the November 2011 issue of International Financial Regulation Review (BNA International).
