  FSB Names Three New Chairs to SRC, ReSG, SRC Committees

  The FSB thanked in the announcement to the outgoing Chairs Himino Ryozo, Lesetja Kganyago, and Mark Branson.

  The G20s Financial Supervisory Board (FSB) has appointed new Chairs for two of its Standing Committees and the Resolution Steering Group on Tuesday.

  According to the announcement, Andrew Bailey, Governor of Bank of England (BoE), has been named as Chair of the Standing Committee on Supervisory and Regulatory Cooperation (SRC); Fahad Almubarak, Governor of Saudi Central Bank, has been appointed as Chair of the Standing Committee on Standards Implementation (SCSI); Jelena McWilliams, Chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, became the Chair of the Resolution Steering Group (ReSG).

  Bailey and Almubarak took their respective roles in the FSB effective immediately, while McWilliams will start serving as Chair of the ReSG starting November 1, 2021. The FSB clarified that each appointment is for a two-year term, renewable once. With the new appointments, the Financial Supervisory Board issued a farewell to Himino Ryozo, Lesetja Kganyago, and Mark Branson, outgoing Chairs.

  SRC provides supervisory and regulatory policies that deal with key financial stability risks and coordinates issues among supervisors and regulators to ensure that cross-sectoral and international impacts are addressed effectively. Also, as part of its FSB peer review duties, the SCSI ‘promotes global compliance’ with international financial standards and reports on the progress members are making in fulfilling these standards, among other commitments the G20 and FSB have agreed upon.

  On the other hand, in addition to conducting resolvability assessments, the ReSG guides FSB work on resolution regimes, resolution planning, and resolution plans for all sectors.

  FSB and Stablecoins

  Last year, the FSB made 10 recommendations for properly regulating stablecoins, the digital currencies pegged to fiats or other traditional assets. The G20 supervisory body pointed out the risks associated with stablecoins, but also pointed out the nature of the risks could change over time. The recommendation also stressed a single framework for all such stablecoins irrespective of the underlying blockchain technology and calls for a ‘same business – same risks – same rules.’
