Systemic Risk

This chapter develops a model of interbank lending in which unsecured claims, repo market activity, and shocks to haircuts applied to collateral assume centre-stage. Systemic liquidity crises of the kind witnessed during 2007–8 are shown to arise in such a framework. The model illustrates how the complexity and concentration of a financial network can act to amplify its knife-edge properties. It also discusses how a range of policy measures, including tougher liquidity regulation and surcharges for systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs) could make the financial system more resilient.

Keywords:   liquidity regulation, repo haircuts, core funding ratio, systemic liquidity crises, systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs)
