2024 Annual ECB Banking Supervision Research Conference

“The European Single Supervisory Mechanism at 10:

Lessons learnt and challenges ahead”

Frankfurt am Main, Tuesday, 11 and Wednesday, 12 June 2024

Hybrid event

In 2024 the European Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Taking over direct banking supervision of the largest banks across the euro area in November 2014 was a crucial milestone to build the banking union. The need for a centralised banking supervision in Europe was a direct lesson learnt from the great financial crisis and the subsequent sovereign debt crisis in order to rebuild trust in the banking sector and increase the resilience of the financial system within the monetary union.
