Global Banking Regulation – Challenges Ahead
In what is a proactive response to the current crisis that has caused a momentous shift in priorities, the FinConf2020 has made significant changes in its content and panels, and has chosen a web platform in order to make the most of the new circumstances and reach out to worldwide audiences.
The aims for this panel are quite ambitious, whereby we endeavour to give a high-level overview of a broad range of interconnected topics relevant to the global banking regulation, while remaining open to the myriad possibilities that may arise from this crisis of an unknown nature, scope, duration, and ramifications.
This panel is designed to provide the audience with a historical, conceptual, and forward-looking perspective on the ongoing as well as potential developments pertaining to the global banking regulation system. In addition to possibly revisiting certain existing elements and re-opening what would otherwise be considered a quintessential Pandora’s Box, the highly regarded experts and policymakers on this panel might, perhaps, also contemplate some out-of-the-box scenarios and solutions.
In particular, this panel will focus on the existing global financial architecture (BCBS, G-20, FSB) and the regulatory framework (Basel III) in light of the economic, political and social crisis. Additionally, special sessions will be dedicated to discussing two vital elements that are expected to elicit even more emphasis in the future, namely, the impact of sustainability concerns, and the opportunities and risks arising from fast-paced innovation.
This free web panel is scheduled for 26 May 2020 and is divided into three consecutive sessions:
- RETHINKING PRUDENTIAL REGULATION CONCEPTS AND DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL BANKING REGULATORY STANDARDS (10:00 – 11:45 CEST)
- BASEL III: CONTROVERSIAL CHANGES, IMPLEMENTATION, TEMPORARY EASING, POTENTIAL REVISION (12:00 – 14:00 CEST)
- INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY IN BANKING (14:15 – 16:00 CEST)
