Under the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), introduced in 2014, the European Central Bank (ECB) was granted a supervisory role to monitor the financial stability and central control of over 6,000 credit institutions in the Eurozone. Under the SSM, banks face a new set of challenges to meet new supervisory standards beyond those of their national supervisors.

KPMG’s ECB Office provides you with the latest information and assistance with SSM related issues. Our ECB Office combines the expertise from KPMG’s International network of banking professionals and former regulators, to bring you solutions for dealing with the ECB supervisory approach. Our advisory team can help you understand how the SSM functions and how best to work with national banking authorities. Our international interdisciplinary team is familiar with the supervisory methods practiced across Europe and our tight-knit network provides insight into the new supervisory mechanisms.

This page is a dedicated repository for articles and publications on priority ECB areas impacting banks. Stay tuned for perspectives and insights on pressing supervisory topics in our SSM Insights quarterly newsletter.
