Macroprudence

In the macroprudential framework, risks are analyzed and assessed from the viewpoint of the entire financial system, and institutional designs and policy responses are formed on these assessments, thereby ensuring stability of the entire financial system. The Bank of Japan has been taking various initiatives on the macroprudential front.
