EBA calls on banks to consider long-term horizons in strategies

The European Banking Authority has recommended that regulators take certain actions to prevent short-termism in the banking sector.

The EBA said it has identified some limited concrete evidence of short-termism, whereby banks exert short-term pressures on corporate clients and are under short-term pressures themselves from shareholders and capital markets.

It recommended that the European Commission and EU legislators maintain a robust regulatory framework as a precondition for long-term investments; encourage firms to adopt longer-term perspectives through more explicit legal provisions on sustainability in the capital markets directive; by enhancing company and bank disclosures; and by improving information flows to allow banks to raise awareness on sustainability challenges.

The European Securities and Markets Authority also recommended action on key areas including the disclosure of environmental, social and governance factors.

Meanwhile, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority found no clear evidence of undue short-termism in insurance and institutions for occupational retirement provision, but has still asked companies to consider long-term horizons in their strategies.

The three organizations' views come in response to a request from the EC to all three regulators to collect evidence and stakeholders' views on this issue.
