A realistic and transparent modelling of the dynamics leading to financial and economic distress is of paramount importance to both the supervisor and the policymaker: to the former for identifying vulnerabilities in the system, to the latter for a more reliable and in-depth understanding of the outcome of new regulations. With this in mind, we make an extensive collection and reconciliation of large granular datasets, providing entity level information, and permitting the reconstruction of the Euro Area banking sector. We further impose dynamics on the resulting network through a microstructural model allowing for the description of different mechanisms of contagion and their interactions, as well as for the derivation of accurate measures of systemic risk. This modelling framework provides a starting point for diverse policy applications regarding macroprudential measures, including tools for the identification and analysis of sources of systemic risks.
