Financial stability can be defined as a condition in which the financial system – which comprises financial intermediaries, markets and market infrastructures – is capable of withstanding shocks and the unraveling of financial imbalances. This mitigates the prospect of disruptions in the financial intermediation process that are severe enough to adversely impact real economic activity. The objective of macro-prudential supervision is to mitigate the build-up of vulnerabilities in the financial system and ensure a robust financial system.

Financial stability implies that the financial system can efficiently perform its societal role even when subjected to considerable shocks. Vulnerabilities can cause or amplify financial stress and economic downturns when the economy is exposed to shocks. The purpose of macro-prudential supervision is to mitigate the build-up of vulnerabilities in the financial system or increase resilience to shocks. There are different instruments used in macro-prudential supervision. 

Target Participants
