In this paper we assess the financial supervision and regulation structure inRomania. To this purpose, we calculate and interpret the Financial Supervision UnificationIndex (FSU Index) and the Central Bank as Financial Authority Index (CBFA) at the level ofthe year 2011 (August), according to Masciandaro‘s methodology (2004) for all EU27member countries in order to make comparisons with the Romanian ones. We propose achange in the present Romanian financial supervisory regime from the silos model to a hybridone, arrangement that supposes a combination of the sectoral model with the objectives-centred model.
