European financial integration during the COVID-19 crisis

Stefano Borgioli, Carl-Wolfram Horn, Urszula Kochanska, Philippe Molitor and Francesco Mongelli ()

Economic Bulletin Articles, 2020, vol. 7

Abstract: This article provides an overview of financial fragmentation during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and the policies enacted to counter its effects. It does so through the lens of a set of high-frequency indicators for monitoring developments in financial integration. The readings from these indicators are then linked to unfolding economic and political events and to the main policy responses in monetary, fiscal and financial stability policy at the national and European levels. After initial sharp fragmentation, euro area financial integration broadly recovered to pre-crisis levels by mid-September, but not for all indicators. However, this recovery is still fragile and relies on an unprecedented amount of fiscal, monetary and prudential policy support. JEL Classification: G00, F36
