The Financial Stability Board (FSB) Plenary held a regular meeting on 28 March. During the meeting, which was held virtually, FSB members discussed recent developments in financial markets and their financial stability implications.

FSB members welcomed the policy measures taken by authorities in Switzerland, the United States and other jurisdictions to maintain global financial stability and the coordinated actions by central banks to enhance the provision of liquidity across borders.

Recent events have highlighted the importance of the G20 financial reforms adopted following the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, which have enhanced financial institutions’ resilience. These reforms included increasing capital and liquidity buffers in the banking system and strengthening cross-border regulatory and supervisory cooperation. The events have also underlined the importance of ongoing work by national authorities to complete the implementation of the agreed reforms in a full, timely and consistent manner. An open and resilient global financial system, grounded in agreed international standards, is crucial to support sustainable growth.

Members agreed to review the lessons to be learned from the recent actions by authorities to resolve financial institutions for the operation of the international resolution framework. FSB members remain vigilant and stand ready to take policy measures to maintain the resilience of the global financial system. The FSB will continue to promote international cooperation, closely monitor market developments, evaluate market functioning and assess financial vulnerabilities.
