A Finextra Dinner Club event in association with IBM
Finextra is hosting an exclusive executive-level dinner at the prestigious Walbrook Club in the heart of the City of London on 17th July, featuring presentations from Professor Sir John Vickers of All Souls College, Oxford and Christopher Daniels of the Bank of England.
Although international plans are still in flux, the UK’s banks have been advised by the Financial Services Authority that they must submit so-called “living wills” spelling out how they would be saved or wound up in a crisis without relying on a taxpayer bailout. The exercise is costly and time consuming as banks may have to reconfigure the business to show that if in trouble, toxic assets can be segregated and disposed of without bringing down the whole firm.
Join Finextra and IBM for an exclusive dinner debate to discuss with your industry peers the latest developments and implications of ICB and Living Wills regulations. Our guest speakers will reflect on key take-aways from the first deadline in June affecting the country's biggest banks and explore the implications for the wider financial services community.
Our guest speakers will discuss:
- A review and progress update from the initial deadline
- What are the next steps in complying with the regulations and what should banks be doing now?
- What are the implications for technology and operating models in separating retail and wholesale banking businesses?
- Do the regulations point to new industry models?
- What might be the impact on the UK financial services industry?
Places at the dinner are reserved for executive level professionals and senior managers involved in regulation, compliance, risk, IT and operations at banks. Attendees are individually vetted to ensure a high level of networking opportunities.
