Summary:This paper reviews the institutional framework for the conduct of macroprudential policy in the United Kingdom and the steps taken by the authorities to make the macroprudential framework operational. An effective macroprudential framework is crucial for the U.K. financial system to remain a global public good, given its size and systemic nature.
