There is no doubt that the financial sector has been hit by a tsunami of regulation. In the five years immediately following the global financial crisis, G20 regulators increased their document output by 500%1 - one result of the rising volume and complexity of financial regulation.
Today, the market is still feeling the effects of those regulatory reactions to the crisis, but is also starting to see the emergence of more measured, long-term efforts to create a safe and stable financial system. But are regulators’ efforts always pointed in the right direction?
At a recent event co-hosted by S&P Global Market Intelligence and the NYU Stern School of Business, we brought together four leading minds in the industry to discuss the current and future state of financial regulation. This white paper summarizes the key insights from our expert panelists – touching on everything from Basel IV to loan losses and the need for greater global co-ordination among regulators.
