This policy paper has been prepared as an accompanying and follow-up contribution of the Financial Stability Conference 2017 which was held October 18 in Berlin. Early-stage and PhD researchers have been invited to write policy-oriented papers on selected topical issues of the conference to be published, circulated and enclosed in the conference report.
This paper explores how the balance between different policy objectives in the financial sector has been struck within the European Banking Union (EBU) context. In particular, we focus on the implementation of competition and financial stability policies, suggesting institutional amendments and policy calibration oriented at facilitating a better aligned and more transparent balancing of objectives.
