On Sunday, October 26, the European Central Bank (ECB) will release the results of its comprehensive asset quality assessment on the health of the eurozone's banking sector. Covering 130 banks in all eighteen eurozone member countries, the assessment will gauge the overall strength (or weakness) of 85 percent of euro area banks. 
The ECB will disclose these findings right before it assumes new authority in November over euro area banks, known as the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), which gives the ECB overarching power to obtain all necessary information from international and national banking supervisors in the eurozone. What will the assessment tell us about the overall health of the eurozone, and how will the ECB react to the findings once SSM is in place?

Please call in Monday, October 27 at 11:00 a.m ET for a moderated discussion with Andrea Montanino, executive director at the IMF, and incoming director at the Atlantic Council's Global Business and Economics Program. This event will be on-the-record and time will be provided for questions and answers.
