In the wake of the financial market crisis new rules on banking recovery and resolution of systemic banks have been enacted in order to facilitate the bail-in of banks´ creditors. Banks will be required to maintain sufficient amounts of own funds and bail-inable debt called Minimum Requirement for own funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL) or Total Loss-Absorbing Capacity (TLAC) respectively. Hence even more competing norms exist in parallel most of which aim to correct the results of banks´ internal models which have often times underestimated risks. Because the multitude of new and existing rules overlap, reducing unnecessary complexity is needed and can be accomplished without changing capital and MREL requirements overall. A pro-forma analysis relating to a sample of 23 systemically important banks in the European Union support this view.
