PRAGUE (Reuters) – Governments not central bank should help energy firms under stress from market volatility and prudential requirements should not be eased at clearing houses and derivative counterparties, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said.

Lagarde said that the ECB was ready to provide liquidity to banks as part of normal its normal central banking operations but utility firms are outside its remit.

“Our sense is that watering down the prudential requirements for clearing houses and derivative counterparties should be avoided,” she said.
