The Financial Stability Board (FSB) is an international body that monitors and makes recommendations about the global financial system. The FSB promotes international financial stability; it does so by coordinating national financial authorities and international standard-setting bodies as they work toward developing strong regulatory, supervisory and other financial sector policies. Embedded in the FSB’s structure is a framework for the identification of systemic risk in the financial sector, for framing the policy sector policy actions that can address these risks, and for overseeing implementation of those responses.
