Prudential Rules for Investment Firms: How to tailor a targeted prudential framework?

All investment firms are currently subject to the prudential requirements designed for banks. The European Commission’s proposal for a prudential framework devoted exclusively to investment firms will alter this regime:

  • systemically important investment firms will remain under the same prudential rules as apply to banks.  
  • smaller investment firms will be subject to less stringent requirements. 

The overarching objectives of the prudential framework are to ensure that the firms have sufficient funds to remain financially viable and avoid contagion to customers and the wider economy. 

Two critical obstacles stand in the way of effectively and efficiently reaching the objectives of this framework:

  • the extent to which the rules will be tailored for the different types of investment firms and 
  • the distribution of supervisory powers. 
These and other obstacles and challenges for the prudential framework for investment firms will be tackled by policy-makers, industry representatives and other experts at this CEPS-ECMI conference. 


The Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) and its affiliate, the European Capital Markets Institute (ECMI), are leading think tanks and forums for debate on European affairs.
In June 2017, ABN AMRO Clearing co-hosted a conference with CEPS-ECMI on "Recovery & Resolution of CCP’s".
This is a very timely discussion, especially for clients already established in or exploring setting up operations in the Netherlands. 
ABN AMRO Clearing is proud to host this conference at its ABN AMRO headquarters in Amsterdam.
