  • the G20 Leaders’ welcome the Financial Stability Board’s (FSB) proposal requiring global systemically important banks to hold additional loss absorbing capacity;
  • progress has been made in delivering the shadow banking framework and the G20 Leaders’ endorse the FSB’s updated roadmap for further work; and
