The Center for Financial Services at the College of Business and Economics at Lehigh University will present a panel discussion of the unintended consequences of financial reform in New York City on February 16, 2017. In the wake of the financial crisis, a myriad of financial regulations have been adopted by both domestic and international securities and banking regulators. Yet little attention has been paid to the way these regulations interact and overlap with each other. Heightened regulatory capital requirements, changing standards for oversight, increased compliance costs and a low interest rate environment contribute to the potential for regulatory arbitrage and the movement of capital into the unregulated financial sector.
Partner Jay Baris will participate in a panel discussion regarding ways in such activities should or should not be mitigated as well as possible changes to the regulatory landscape under the new administration
