Wednesday 02 September 2020

Continued support from official institutions such as the ECB and the EIB will be crucial for the future prosperity of the world economy. Here's why.


"Covid-19 is a crisis like no other. Official institutions – including central banks – will be vital in shaping the world's recovery moving forward."

According to a recent publication by BNP Paribas Securities Services, central banks and supranational organisations are playing a vital role in counteracting the adverse effects of the 2020 Coronavirus outbreak on the financial markets and the international economy. These include:

  • A massive monetary policy response – comprising, in the case of the European Central Bank, significant liquidity injections, an easing of bank capital and collateral requirements, and a Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme
  • A move to prioritising corporate quantitative easing (QE) purchases on environmental, social and governance- (ESG) related securities (including social bonds)
  • Direct intervention in the repo market, ensuring continued liquidity in the credit markets
