This work programme details the FSB’s planned work and an indicative timetable of main publications for 2019. It reflects the FSB’s continued pivot from policy design to the implementation and evaluation of the effects of reforms and, in particular, vigilant monitoring to identify and address new and emerging risks to financial stability.

  • Addressing new and emerging vulnerabilities in the financial system - Preserving financial stability, and thereby supporting sustainable growth, requires the continued monitoring of developments in the global financial system. The FSB will continue to scan the horizon to identify and assess emerging risks through regular discussion by its members of macro-financial developments, as well as through the biannual Early Warning Exercise conducted jointly with the International Monetary Fund. The FSB will also continue to assess the impact of evolving market structures and of technological innovation on global financial stability. This includes the resilience of financial markets in stress, the implications of the growth of non-bank financial intermediation and operational issues such as cyber risks.

  • Finalising and operationalising post-crisis reforms - G20 post-crisis financial reforms have delivered a safer, simpler and fairer financial system. To reinforce this progress, the FSB is working with standard-setting bodies (SSBs) to complete work on a few final issues in the main reform areas.

  • Implementation and evaluating the effects of the reforms - Implementation of the reforms is not complete and it remains uneven. It is critical to maintain momentum and avoid complacency, in order to achieve the goal of greater resilience. The FSB, in collaboration with SSBs, will continue work on implementation monitoring through regular progress reports and peer reviews.

  • Evaluating the effects of the reforms - The FSB will also take forward its programme to evaluate the effects of post-crisis reforms. The objective is to assess whether reforms are operating as intended in an efficient manner, and to identify and deliver adjustments where appropriate, without compromising on the agreed level of resilience.
