SE Current topics in Finance
SE 1

The crisis in the financial markets beginning in the middle of 2007 made obvious the importance of transparency, efficient regulation, supervision and risk management for financial institutions and stakeholders. Lately the Financial Stability Board has raised the awareness of systemic risk and shadow banking. New legislation is aiming to increase investor protection.

The seminar will analyse and provide insight into the recent measures taken to improve the functioning of financial markets, reduce systemic risks and strengthen the role of supervisory authorities. Seminar participants will gain an understanding of the implications of a number of recent measures taken by IOSCO, ESMA, FSB and the European Commission.
