As Secretary of the Treasury during President Obama’s first term, Timothy Geithner was a leading figure in the US Government’s response to the global financial crisis of 2008.

Workshop details:
In the years following the advent of the global financial crisis, Asian economies have experienced major, sustained growth and have continued to play a bigger and bigger role in the global financial system.  

At the same time, as is typical of periods experiencing deeply disruptive events, financial services were transforming at a quickening pace around the world.  Major innovations and enabling technologies transformed wholesale and retail transactions and payment systems, investment processes and products, and even the nature of currency.

The workshop will consider the future of financial services and the imperative for innovation, raising these broad questions:

  • What are the most important examples and trends shaping the future of financial services in an increasingly digital and connected world?
  • What steps should financial service providers, both traditional and emerging, take to thrive in this new environment?
  • What is the optimal direction for financial regulators to support the success of their financial service sectors?
  • How can Asian financial service companies achieve and maintain high value positioning on a regional and a global scale?
