Abstract: Before the global 2008 financial crisis, most officials appeared not to have anticipated the problems that would need to be addressed if a large cross-border bank should need to be resolved. During and after the financial crisis, this issue surged to the top of the policy agenda. Events made clear that several institutions had become too big and too complex to fail: new rules were needed to make resolution of global banks possible, without cost to taxpayers or damaging spillovers to the economy. After the crisis, the G-20 gave the Financial Stability Board (FSB) a mandate to identify Global Systemically Important Banks (G-SIBs) and to ensure that each had a credible recovery and resolution plan. This study investigates the complexity of the 29 institutions that have been designated as G-SIBs in 2013.
