Report on Shadow Banking in the Americas
This report has been prepared by the FSB Regional Consultative Group for the Americas. It provides a “macro-mapping” monitoring of shadow banking in the region, based on the FSB Global Shadow Banking Monitoring Report, combined with a jurisdiction-specific analysis of the nature of shadow banking, its interconnections with the rest of the financial sector, and potential risks from these connections. It also proposes recommendations and identifies future challenges to improve the oversight of the shadow banking sector in the region.
