European central bank against the sky

Every quarter, KPMG's European Central Bank Office brings you news and insights into issues relating to the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM). This quarterly newsletter seeks to cover the key issues that the ECB are talking about, and the questions and topics that KPMG member firms are discussing among banks and others in the industry. It aims to highlight both current and upcoming change by identifying potential effects on financial institutions' strategies and operations.
