Please join us at Morrison & Foerster for a seminar looking at the key regulatory proposals in the UK and EU which will introduce fundamental changes to the way in which financial institutions are regulated.

As panic begins to recede and the world gradually regains confidence, regulators are increasingly shifting their focus to longer-term reforms in order to seek to reduce the likelihood and severity of another financial crisis and to ensure that banks and other financial institutions are better able to endure one. The numerous global, regional and national initiatives, often overlapping with one another, range from tougher regulatory capital and liquidity standards (through reforms of the Basel framework and the EU Capital Requirements Directive), risk management practices, special insolvency regimes, leverage ratios and contingency plans (“living wills”) for large, systemically important financial institutions to remuneration policies. In the UK the Conservative-led coalition government has proposed radical reforms to the financial regulatory structure, involving the abolition of the FSA, and the introduction of bank levies. Likewise, sweeping reforms are also being introduced to the EU financial supervisory architecture, which involve establishing new EU-level supervisory bodies to oversee financial stability and to supervise EU financial institutions. We will review some of the most profound changes taking place in decades to the financial regulatory landscape and explore the road ahead for international financial institutions.

Topics Will Include:

  • Regulatory proposals in relation to capital and liquidity, including update on Basel reform proposals and amendments to the EU Capital Requirements Directive
  • UK proposals to revamp its financial regulatory structure
  • Changes to the EU financial supervisory architecture
  • Living wills, bank levies and other specific proposals
