Financial Stability Report, November 2017

The Bank of England (BoE) has published its financial stability report, issue number 42. 

The report sets out the Financial Policy Committee’s (FPC), a sub-committee of the BoE’s Court of Directors, views of the outlook for UK financial stability, including the assessment of the resilience of the UK financial system and the main risks to financial stability.

The FPC states that apart from the risks related to Brexit, domestic risks are at a standard level overall, and that risks from global debt levels, asset valuations and misconduct costs remain material.

Alongside the report, the BoE has published the results of the 2017 stress test. The 2017 stress test shows the UK banking system is resilient to deep simultaneous recessions in the UK and global economies, large falls in asset prices and a separate stress of misconduct costs.
