Record of Financial Policy Committee Meeting held on 21 November 2012

Our Financial Policy Committee (FPC) meets quarterly and sets policy to meet our financial stability objective.
Published on 04 December 2012

The Committee recommends that the Financial Services Authority (FSA) takes action to ensure that the capital of UK banks and building societies reflects a proper valuation of their assets, a realistic assessment of future conduct costs and prudent calculation of risk weights. Where such action reveals that capital buffers need to be strengthened to absorb losses and sustain credit availability in the event of stress, the FSA should ensure that firms either raise capital or take steps to restructure their business and balance sheets in ways that do not hinder lending to the real economy.
