Bank of England announces proposals to strengthen the financial system through structural reform

The Bank of England has today published four papers that propose changes to improve the resilience and resolvability of deposit-takers and reduce the disruption to customers and the system if a deposit-taker or insurer fails.
Published on 06 October 2014

Following recommendations made by the Independent Commission on Banking, the Government introduced legislation to allow for ring-fencing of core banking services in the UK from activities associated with trading and financial interconnectedness. These changes are intended to ensure that ring-fenced banks, and groups containing ring-fenced banks, can be resolved in an orderly manner with minimal disruption to the provision of core services.
