Toward A Global Risk Map

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Global risk maps are unified databases that provide risk exposure data to supervisors and the broader financial market community worldwide. The authors think of them as giant matrices that track the bilateral (firm-level) exposures of banks, non-bank financial institutions and other relevant market participants. While useful in principle, these giant matrices are unlikely to materialize outside the narrow and targeted efforts currently being pursued in the supervisory domain. This reflects the well known trade-offs between the macro and micro dimensions of data collection and dissemination.
