The Financial Stability Board (FSB) is seeking feedback from stakeholders for its evaluation of the effects of financial regulatory reforms on the provision of financing to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The evaluation forms part of a broader FSB examination of the effects of post-crisis reforms on financial intermediation. More details on the evaluation and a summary of the views expressed by some stakeholders can be found in the note with the key takeaways of a roundtable held by the FSB on this topic in December 2018.

As part of this evaluation, the FSB invites feedback from stakeholders including SMEs, financial institutions and trade associations on the following issues:

Feedback, including evidence in support of the responses, should be submitted by 18 March 2019 to fsb@fsb.org under the subject heading “SME financing evaluation”. Responses will be published on the FSB’s website unless respondents expressly request otherwise. The feedback will be considered by the FSB as it prepares the draft report, which will be issued for public consultation ahead of the June 2019 G20 Summit. The final report, reflecting the feedback from the public consultation, will be published in October 2019.
