3rd International Banking and Finance Forum – Restoring Confidence in Financial Services
On 19 November 2013 IBDE organised its 3rd International Banking and Finance Forum – Restoring Confidence in Financial Services, kindly hosted by Clifford Chance. The forum provided an opportunity to explore the progress made and challenges remaining in order to restore trust and confidence in the industry as well as to discuss the importance of achieving sensible regulatory reforms in the financial services to ensure that the confidence in banking and finance sector lending will be restored in support of the much needed economic growth.
The forum assembled some excellent speakers including the Minister of Finance of Lithuania and over 200 delegates from across the financial industry, government agencies, academia, and civil society to provide constructive informed input on the banking reforms in the quest for improving conduct and standards - key to restoring confidence and trust in financial services. IBDE in partnership with industry practitioners, policymakers, regulators and other stakeholders will strive to make its modest contribution to this process.
