Dear Mr. Antoniou, 

Following your e-mail of 29 October 2015, please be aware that central banks, whether it is the ECB or a national central bank, have no direct involvement in bank recapitalisation decisions, which are the preserve of the competent national authorities, including the relevant supervisory or resolution authorities. Moreover, as you will be aware, the funds necessary for the recapitalisation of a commercial bank originate either with private investors (including current shareholders of the relevant banks) or with national budgetary resources, making of the contributing sovereign a bank shareholder.

It follows that, both at the level of the actual decision-making process, and at the level of the financial resources necessary for a recapitalisation process, central banks have no involvement. This is without prejudice to the obvious interest of a central bank in the recapitalisation of banks, where this is essential to restore their health and guarantee their ability to serve their essential market intermediation role.

Yours sincerely,

Angelika Jakob
