Financial Services: Reputation, Regulation and Current Market Trends

Event Date: 6 May 2016

This is an 'Engage with Strathclyde Business School' event.

Financial Services: Reputation, Regulation and Current Market Trends
Incorporating the Formal Launch of the Centre for Financial Regulation and Innovation

Time: 11am - 2pm 

The University is proud to launch the Centre for Financial Regulation and Innovation which will help to address the systemic failure of regulators to keep pace with financial innovation. 
The formal launch will be followed by the "Financial Services: Reputation, Regulation and Current Market Trends" event which aims to bring industry and academic experts together and identify areas of mutual interest in terms of research and collaboration. 
The goal is to enable practitioners to exchange ideas on contemporary issues they are faced with and engage with academics in identifying ways on how to resolve them. The discussion will be on regulation on financial services and institutions, how financial institutions tend to their reputation and what lies in the future in the current market developments. 
A panel of experts will debate the issues of regulation on financial services and the future of the industry, including:

  • Can regulation enhance the robustness of the financial markets, whilst minimising the risk of future turmoil in those markets.   
  • Banking and Credit Rating Agencies: Beyond Basel III?
  • Will low rates persist in the near future?
  • In lieu of bond purchases by Central Banks is there a knock on effect on the liquidity and health of financial markets?
  • Do lower base rates paradoxically lead to more debt downgrades and expected defaults?
  • In lieu of current low base rates, is there a higher demand for raising capital in the primary markets or do firms prefer to consolidate their operations and balance sheet?
  • Where does reputation sit with risk management and reporting initiatives?
  • Is more regulation the way forward for financial markets?
  • How is reputational risk: measured and managed and any lessons learned from the credit crunch?
  • Has the financial services industry put the credit crunch behind or is there a shadow looming still?
  • Can a unified/harmonised EU-wide regulatory framework mitigate information asymmetries and enhance market stability?
