Financial Stability Review 2021: German financial system has functioned well during pandemic Video of the press conference
The German financial system has functioned well during the pandemic; the extensive government measures have shielded the financial sector from losses. This is the conclusion reached by the Bundesbank in its Financial Stability Review 2021. At the presentation of the report, Bundesbank Vice-President Claudia Buch noted that, at the same time, vulnerabilities to adverse macroeconomic developments had built up continually, especially risks associated with real estate financing.
“Now is the right time to take preventive action against future risks,” stressed Ms Buch.
