The SRF may be used to ensure the effective application of resolution tools in a bank resolution system, in order to safeguard: (1) the assets or liabilities of the bank in liquidation; (2) lend to the bank in liquidation or acquire assets of the bank in liquidation; (3) contribute to a bridge institution and an asset management company; (4) instead of amortization or conversion of the liabilities of certain creditors, contribute, under certain conditions, to the institution in liquidation (bail-in tool); (5) To pay compensation to shareholders or creditors who have suffered greater losses than in normal insolvency proceedings, so as not to be less well off in liquidation than they were in liquidation. The SRF (nor the national resolution funds) may not be used for the absorption of losses of an institution or the recapitalisation of an institution. Neither the SRF nor EDIS has a common euro area final budgetary guarantee. . . .
