The Future of Financial Standards
The SWIFT Institute and SWIFT’s Standards Forum, in partnership with The London School of Economics and Political Science, will host a full day of in depth discussion around the future of financial standards.
Post-crisis, the financial industry confronts unprecedented public scrutiny and commercial pressure. Regulators, charged with preventing further crises, need to identify threats to global stability in time to take action. Financial institutions need to comply with regulations and better manage their own risks. Both must ensure that new measures are effective, and at a time of shrinking margins and fierce competition, implementation also needs to be cost-efficient.
Standards have an outstanding track record of increasing efficiency and reducing cost in many areas of the financial industry. What role can standards play in enabling the industry to meet its latest challenges? And what needs to happen for the full benefits of standardization to be realised?
Join us, and a distinguished panel of academics, regulators, bankers and standardizers to review the latest research in this area, and contribute to the debate.
The date for this event is Tuesday 25th March 2014. The venue is Space 39, at Level 39, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London.
