How healthy are Europe’s banks two years into the pandemic?

Each year we look at the risks banks face and how well-equipped they are to deal with them. What are our latest findings? And what are supervisors most concerned about?

In this episode of The ECB Podcast, our host Katie Ranger explores these questions with Supervisory Board Chair Andrea Enria and Vice-Chair Frank Elderson.

The views expressed are those of the speakers and not necessarily those of the European Central Bank.
