Summary "The unprecedented scope and intensity of the recent financial crisis underscored the too-important-to-fail (TITF) problem associated with systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs). Ahead of the crisis, implicit government backing permitted these institutions to take on greater risks without being adequately subject to market discipline and to enjoy a competitive advantage over systemically less important institutions. And when the crisis broke, their scale, complexity, and interconnectedness, which had made them difficult to manage and supervise, also proved too significant to permit them to fail
