Economic impact of the G20's too-big-to-fail reforms

FRAME content on too-big-to-fail reforms

FRAME records quantitative estimates of the impact of the G20's too-big-to-fail (TBTF) reforms on bank funding costs, credit ratings as well as contingent claims (see chart).

The number of records on the impact of a given TBTF reform on a given economic variable varies with the number of studies available in the literature. The effect of a bank being systemically important ("SIB effect") on its funding costs ("Bank funding cost"), ie the measurement of SIB's funding cost advantage, includes the most estimates.

For more information, see "Too-big-to-fail and funding costs: A repository of research studies".
