Event Details

The UCL Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics Colloquium 2011:


STABILITY AND COMPETITION IN BANKING AFTER THE FINANCIAL CRISIS
A debate over structural and behavioural remedies in banking in light of the Independent Commission on Banking Interim Report


to be held on 8 June 2011 from 4 - 7 pm, at UCL Law Faculty, London


accredited with 3 CPD hours by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority

 

About this event:
The recent deep financial crisis has resulted in the search for measures that could reduce the risk of a recurrence. Many have looked at whether banks tend to take on risks that the general public ends up bearing and whether regulations should reduce these negative externalities. Some have called for breaking banks up, raising capital standards, charging them for the risks they create, or impose various rules that prevent banks from creating too much systemic risk. Others have questioned whether the extent to which banking practices were really responsible for the crisis or whether the proposed constraints on banks impose more costs on banks than they are worth such as perhaps reducing bank lending that stimulates economic group. While financial regulators have been most focused on reform competition authorities are also increasingly focused on banking and, among other things, are considering the relationship between market structure, business practices, and system risk.

The recently released interim report by the Independent Commission on Banking, chaired by Sir John Vickers, is one of the latest attempts to consider these difficult issues. It proposed significantly increased capital requirements on banks and some fencing off of retail banking from riskier operations.

This conference will be opened by Sir John Vickers, the chairman of the Independent Commission on Banking, and brings together antitrust and financial regulation experts, including key current or former regulators from the UK and EU, to discuss these issues.
