International Banking Regulation in the 21st Century Print
Brown Bag Seminar, Speaker: Judson O. Berkey, Managing Director, Group Operational Risk, UBS Zurich
17 November 2008, 12.15 - 13.45, Auditorium Anna Nussbaum, WTI, Berne, Switzerland

An informal discussion, based on personal views, of the Financial Crisis and its implications for financial regulation in the 21st century

The presentation will include a brief overview of the main causes of the financial crisis, the immediate regulatory reactions, possible short to mid term changes in banks and regulators, as well as some thoughts about the links to trade and globalisation more generally.  While examining the crisis will occupy scholars, practioners, and regulators years, some immediate conclusions can be drawn that may have long term implications for the financial sector and the world economic system.
