Public Information

The Federal Agency for Financial Market Stabilisation (Bundesanstalt für Finanzmarktstabilisierung – FMSA) is an institution of the Federal Republic of Germany. 

Since its foundation in 2008, in the midst of the global financial crisis, the FMSA has become an important pillar of Germany’s financial market architecture. Today, the FMSA manages not only numerous shareholdings with financial institutions on behalf of the Federal Government, but it is also responsible for nationally administering the Single Resolution Fund’s bank levy. In addition, the FMSA supervises the two wind-down agencies, EAA and FMS-WM.

In 2015, the FMSA has assumed the role and responsibilities of the German National Resolution Authority within the European Single Resolution Mechanism. In close cooperation with the Single Resolution Board, the FMSA is, thus, drafting resolution plans for German banks.
