Westminster Business Forum

Building a resilient UK financial sector - next steps for prudential regulation, structural reform and mitigating risks

Morning, Wednesday, 4th July 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will discuss the next steps for prudential regulation and financial stability - looking in particular at risk, structural reform and future priorities for the capital regime.


It is timed as financial institutions prepare for the introduction of the banking ring-fence and the final Basel III regulatory framework, with delegates considering the likely effectiveness of these significant changes, as well as their implications for the sector’s competiveness and credit exposure.


Further sessions will consider the latest priorities for strengthening financial stability and mitigating risks - including the potential risks posed by household debt, P2P lending, digital currencies and Brexit; the future for Solvency II and CRD IV post-Brexit; and the next steps for the counter-cyclical capital buffer and stress testing.


For this conference we expect speakers and other delegates to be an informed group including Members of both Houses of Parliament, senior government officials from HM Treasury, Bank of England, PRA and FCA, and other relevant departments involved in this area of policy and regulation, together with representatives from across the financial services sector - including, banks, building societies, insurers, investors, fund managers and FinTechs - as well as academics, trade associations, consultancies, lawyers, consumer groups, think tanks and members of the national and trade media.
