Abstract

In December 2011, the Eurosystem’s Governing Council decided to extend the scope of assets eligible to be used as collateral in refinancing operations, as part of its non-standard monetary policy measures. In France, this decision resulted, from February 2012, in the admission of credit claims on companies rated 4 on the Banque de France’s rating scale. The article sets out the effects of extending the scope of eligibility on the credit financing of the companies directly concerned.
