Repost of Systemic Risk Articles

Recently, we have written some blog posts that relate to the topic of systemic risks to the financial system and the banking system. These articles all contain links back to warnings and reports on this topic from the leading global institutions in the system itself like the IMF and the BIS. 

Because we get new readers here regularly and because the information in these articles is so important, below we are reposting links to these articles all in one place. We will probably repost this information from time to time because it's so important and because the source of the information is from the leading banking institutions in the world.


Yet Another Warning from the IMF - This time on Shadow Banking

"IMF Deputy Chief Zhu Min speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos says banking risks have shifted to "shadow banking". What is shadow banking? What risks does it pose? Let's look at it."

In 2013, the (BIS) did a survey to try and get a feel for the current status of credit risk management. The survey participants came from North America, Europe, and Asia. The goal of the survey was to find out the current status of credit risk management and how it may have changed since the 2008 financial crisis. The survey produced four main recommendations. 

In an earlier blog post, we noted that there is a new government agency report out that looks at the impact and risk of the biggest banks on the whole international financial system. In this post, we will look at this new report more in-depth because it contains important information that we all need to be aware of.

Note: This last blog article linked above contains even more links to more warnings we published last year from the IMF and the BIS. The number of warnings and reports is significant even as we note that there is not that much media coverage of these reports.
