Elizabeth McCaul: Who pays the piper calls the tune: The need for and benefit of strong credit risk management
Blog post by Elizabeth McCaul, Member of the Supervisory Board of the ECB

Strong credit risk management to avoid bad loans piling up now will maximise value, avoid cliff effects and reduce the risk of procyclical effects, writes Supervisory Board member Elizabeth McCaul. Inaction would disrupt the supply of credit and liquidity and delay the recovery.
