"Too big to fail" dossier

tbtf

Systemically important financial institutions can jeopardise entire economies in the event of a disorderly failure and are therefore regarded as “too big to fail” (TBTF). Following the financial crisis of 2007/2008, the Swiss legislator promulgated special rules for the stabilisation, restructuring or liquidation of such institutions. Every year FINMA reports on the progress of this recovery and resolution planning.
