Worldwide, national banks have two major objectives: monetary stability and financial stability. For banks belonging to the European System of Central Banks, of which the National Bank is a member, these tasks are clearly assigned to them by the Treaty of Maastricht.
The National Bank has introduced the "Financial Stability Review" (FSR) in order to answer questions relating to financial economic and real economic interaction and to make known its role in the promotion of financial stability.
The aim is to foster debate and cooperation between macroprudential and microprudential authorities and market operators.
The FSR begins with a general overview of recent economic, financial and structural trends which are likely to have an effect on the stability of the financial system. This overview is complemented by thematic articles. The overview and the articles focus on three areas: monitoring of financial stability and prevention and resolution of systemic risks.
