This paper describes concepts and tools behind macro prudential monitoring, and the growing importance of macro prudential tools for assessing the stability of financial systems. This paper also employs a macro prudential approach in examining financial soundness and identifying its determinants. Using data from selected developing economies in Asia, South America, and Europe, as well as selected economies from the developed world, panel regressions are estimated to quantify the impacts of the major influences on key financial soundness indicators, including capital adequacy, asset quality, and earnings and profitability.
