Global policymakers are reviewing how post-crisis regulatory reforms have impacted the availability of capital for small business.

The Financial Stability Board (FSB) said Monday that its review will examine trends in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) financing since the crisis, the impact of reforms to the Basel capital rules on bank financing, and the extent to which other G20 reforms or local rule changes have affected SME financing.

The FSB notes that the review comes as part of a broader effort to study the effects of post-crisis reforms on the provision of financial services.

Feedback on the review is due by March 18. The FSB aims to publish an interim report on the issue in June, and a final report in October.
