Regulation and the Financial Sector
Regulation continues to create new and important issues for financial services organisations and with a new UK Government in situ changes may be made to the existing regulatory structure. As such, it is vital for financial services organisations that future regulatory developments are designed and implemented in ways appropriate to the business environment, and that the UK continues to be competitive internationally.
This report is based on interviews with senior industry figures prior to the general election campaign and sets out some of the market reactions to the proposals made on capital and liquidity regulation, and how best to deal with firms that are currently deemed ‘too-big-to-fail’. The report provides input from the financial services industry into the debate underway in the UK and internationally on the new regulatory proposals which continue to be the focus of huge public interest.
Issues covered in this paper are:
- ‘Too-big-to-fail’, ‘too-big-to-rescue’ or ‘too-interconnected-to-fail’
- More capital: how much and when?
- The new framework for liquidity regulation
- ‘Living wills’
