The new guidelines have the aim of ensuring that taxpayers are no longer the first in line to take on the burden of banking failures following a European sovereign debt crisis driven by multi-trillion government bailouts and guarantees for the financial sector since 2008.
Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the chairman of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, hailed the agreement as a major step towards a “banking union” and away from state funded aid to recapitalise or bailout troubled banks across Europe.
“For the first time, we agreed on a significant bail-in to shield taxpayers, to break the vicious circle of sovereigns and banks, and to induce banks to behave more responsibly,” he said early on Thursday morning.
