Since the financial crisis, international policymakers have enacted reforms to increase the financial system’s resilience and harmonize cross-jurisdictional approaches to financial stability. Despite this progress, significant challenges remain in coordinating cross-border regulatory strategies and responding to emerging stability threats. Some of the issues that will be covered include cross-border resolution, reference rate reform, the fintech revolution, accountability and efficacy of international standard-setting bodies, and emerging regional threats to global financial stability. Moreover, regional uncertainties, including the future of the U.K. financial system post-Brexit, highlight the importance of strong international coordination efforts.
Join regulators, researchers, policymakers, and practitioners for a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary discussion.
