This consultative document sets out proposed guidance on the development of a plan for funding in resolution that builds on the FSB’s August 2016 Guiding Principles on the temporary funding needed to support the orderly resolution of a global systemically important bank (G-SIB) and existing supervisory and resolution guidance on liquidity risk management and resolution planning, respectively. It identifies a set of key funding strategy elements covering:

  • firm capabilities to support monitoring, reporting and estimating funding needs in resolution and to facilitate execution of the funding strategy;

  • the development of a resolution funding plan by the authorities;

  • the use of firm assets and private sources of funding;

  • access to temporary public sector backstop funding mechanisms and ordinary central bank facilities; and

  • information sharing and coordination between authorities.

The FSB welcomes comments and responses to the questions set out in the consultative document by Friday, 2 February 2018. Responses should be sent to with “Funding Strategy Elements of an Implementable Resolution Plan” in the subject line. Responses will be published on the FSB website unless respondents expressly request otherwise.
