Dr. Dombret, Deutsche Bundesbank: „Banks face immediate economic consequences“

Dr. Andreas Dombret, Vorstandsmitglied der Deutschen Bundesbank, erläutert in seiner Keynote Speech anlässlich einer Veranstaltung im Center for Finacial Studies der Goethe Universität Frankfurt am 13.07. 2016, was der Brexit für europäische Banken bedeutet. Auch wenn die Verhandlungen zum Austritt noch nicht begonnen haben, lassen sich laut Dr. Dombret schon heute drei Schlüsse ziehen:

  • Financial institutions have to prepare for a scenario in which euro-denominated trading and clearing is unlikely to have a future outside the EU.
  • Regarding the merger between Deutsche Börse and London Stock Exchange, the referendum outcome has even strengthened the economic rationale. But in order to reap the benefits, contracting partners should now invest in a well-balanced governance structure.
  • Financial actors in Europe have so far succeeded in digesting the somewhat surprising referendum result. Even ongoing volatility should not serve as an excuse to bypass the pillars of financial stability we have only just set up in the EU.

Zudem bedauerte er den durch den Brexit entstandenen Rückzug britischer Kollegen: „I –probably speaking for most, if not for all of my German colleagues – will greatly miss our British counterparts in European institutions; not at least because of their orientation towards stability and free market economy. But, fortunately, as central bankers, we will continue our collaboration at many other levels such as the G7, the G20, the IMF and the BIS.“
