Balancing Risk and Return in the UK Financial System

The Bank of England is today publishing a new-style Financial Stability Report, which provides an assessment of prospects for the UK financial system.
Published on 12 July 2006

The Report emphasises the high profitability and flexibility of the system, which has allowed it to weather a number of disturbances over recent years. However, it also explores six key sources of vulnerability, the shocks that might trigger them and their potential impact on the system. The Report does not forecast what is likely to happen but identifies risks from plausible but unlikely events in order to help guide risk mitigation work.
