Conference Programme [PDF]
The Financial Markets Group and Deutsche Bank hosted this one day event, bringing together some of the key financial regulators, bankers and academics, to assess the recent changes to the regulatory regime in the financial sector, and propose new ideas for future change.
This conference took stock of recent efforts in the US and the European Union to reform financial regulation. The changes implemented, and the reaction of the markets to these changes and the crisis as a whole are likely to change the financial architecture in a fundamental way. A widely held view, as endorsed by the G-20 Leaders and demonstrated by the signing of the new Basel III Capital Accords, is that there is a need for greater International co-ordination and macro-prudential regulation. However, there is a need for compliance and implementation of policies at a domestic level to make this possible. The conference explored whether there is a coherent pattern emerging for the regulatory environment that global banks, investors and other financial institutions will face in the future.
