The CICI Utility changes its name for GMEI.Congratulations!

Happy New Year! : the pre-LOU family keeps on growing!

It is a good news to hear from the ROC that two new Pre-Lous have been endorsed, as of December 27th!

I am referring to KDPW, the Polish, and to NSD, the Russian pre-Lous.

Morning quizz: how many pre-LOUs do we have now?

The answer is…it depends on how you count (but these numbers do not add-up!).

Global SiFis: brace for the impact of asteroid BCBS 239: it will crash by December 2015!

Little attention seems to have been paid by the finacial Community  to a major guidance issued by the BCBS early this year under the barbaric (or isotopic) name of BCBS 239. However, even a cursory glance at the document (http://www.bis.org/publ/bcbs239.pdf) will leave you with the distinct impression that it will entail a landslide in the Organization of the GSIFIs to which it aims.
