The Supervisory Board of the European Central Bank will hold one of its regular meetings in Helsinki to demonstrate the strong collaboration between the supervisory authorities across the euro area.

The meeting will take place on 11 and 12 May, and will be hosted by the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority, Finanssivalvonta (FIN-FSA). It is the first time the Supervisory Board will hold one of its regular meetings outside of Frankfurt.

Danièle Nouy, Chair of the Supervisory Board, said: “This reflects the desire of the members of the Supervisory Board to build a shared identity as European supervisors and reinforce the team spirit within banking supervision.”

Anneli Tuominen, Supervisory Board member and Director General of the FIN-FSA, said: “We are honored to host the first meeting outside Frankfurt. National supervisors are an integral part of the euro area banking supervision and through this meeting we can also illustrate the importance of our joint work.”
