In response to the global financial turmoil and sovereign debt crisis, the European Union has introduced a new bail-in resolution mechanism based on the shared burden of losses between shareholders, debt-holders, and depositors. By focusing on the abnormal stock price reactions to bail-in policy announcements, this paper shows that investors perceive the new bail-in regime as a credible tool to decrease government interventions, reduce the too-big-to-fail problem, and increase market discipline in the European banking industry.
