Financial Stability Report, December 2015

01 December 2015

The Financial Policy Committee (FPC) prepares and publishes a Financial Stability Report (FSR) twice per calendar year. The FSR sets out the FPC’s assessment of the outlook for financial stability in the United Kingdom. To do this, the FPC identifies the risks faced by the UK financial system and weighs them against the resilience of the system.

As a supplement to the December 2015 Financial Stability Report, the FPC has published a document setting out the framework of capital requirements for UK banks.
