FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The European Central Bank plans to publish more data on banks in the future, hoping that more transparency and better data collection will reduce the risk of future financial crises, ECB bank supervisor Daniele Nouy said on Wednesday.

"We are currently broadly reviewing and will be significantly increasing the data we are making available to the public, which should include further breakdowns and more key risk indicators," Nouy told a conference in Frankfurt. "We are committed to push for more data transparency."
