Oct 25 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

PARTICIPATION FREE – REGISTRATION MANDATORY

Click to register

We are now 10 years after the seminal Lehman event, which was followed rapidly by other failures, bailouts and ‘shotgun’ marriages of the Great Financial Crisis. With hindsight, have we built effective solutions to the issues of bank failures and systemic risk? The discussion will explore what’s in place today – both on a conceptual policy level, and whether those solutions pass a credibility test for effectiveness now. Finally, it will explore the remaining issues – the ‘to do’ list – and ask what are the key policy risks, and how we can address them. The online seminar will look at cross-border issues – both international and intra EU – and will spend some time on the relationship between bail-in and the Banking Union.
