Central banks risk causing financial bubbles if they keep buying bonds for too long, European Central Bank director Benoit Coeure said on Thursday, two weeks before the ECB decides on the future of its stimulus programme.

"We need to be mindful of risks to financial stability," Coeure, long considered an ally of president Mario Draghi on the Executive Board, said at en event in Washington.

"A too protracted period of asset purchases, for example, may cause financial imbalances to build up with potentially adverse consequences for price stability."
