EU systemic banks capture huge amount of implicit subsidies

A Greens/EFA study

According to the study, the best estimate of subsidies amounts to 233.9 billion euro. The study shows that that without these implicit subsidies the large banking institutions in the EU would be making substantial losses. Furthermore, it compares the orders of magnitude of implicit subsidies with the upcoming capital charges and levies that will be imposed on financial institutions and concludes that current policy proposals will only have a marginal effect and will not fundamentally eliminate the distortions created by these implicit subsidies.
