On 8 October 2020, the Single Resolution Board (SRB) held its fifth annual conference under the title Banking Resolution: Firm Foundations for Stability. In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the event was turned into a hybrid meeting, with some speakers participating inperson in Brussels, and others taking part online. Audience members watched via live-stream and submitted questions via Twitter (#SRBresolution2020) and other digital tools.
A large part of the day’s discussions focused on banks’ roles in addressing the economic impact of the unprecedented public health crisis. The overwhelming consensus among speakers and panellists was that banks, regulators, supervisory bodies, and other stakeholders involved had acted expediently to support the real economy during the Covid-19 crisis.
