Redefining Financial Services Regulation

Redefining Financial Services Regulation
The PRMIA Washington DC and New York Chapters are proud to present a highly topical Forum on Financial Services Regulation. This Forum will bring together some of the most experienced and articulate representatives from industry, government and academia to discuss the current and future state of financial services regulation.
 Event Information

Financial regulation is at a crossroads. The prescriptive measures which followed the 2008 financial sector crisis have hardly had time to take effect, yet recent political and economic changes have re-ignited debate about how much regulation is enough, or too much, what shape it should take, how uniform it should be across the globe, how much it should cost and who should pay for it.

Time: 1:00PM - 6:30PM
Venue: Steptoe & Johnson LLP
