In 2020, banks will have to face their biggest challenge due to Covid-19. The past decade has seen major financial reforms, making banks safer, more stable, and more resilient in the face of shocks, but a health pandemic was not on the cards. As it brings a new form of global economic shock, public authorities and governments are taking complimentary measures to avoid lasting damage and to align fiscal and monetary policies.
This ESBG Spotlight brought Boris Kisselevsky, head of the European Central Bank's Representative Office in Brussels. Taking place after the ECB's Governing Council meeting, this event provided an opportunity to discuss latest measures taken by the ECB and hear more about the next possible steps in containing the negative crisis effects.
The event is by invitation only and held under the Chatham House Rule.
