On January 24, 2023 the ILF will be presenting the eleventh conference in our series on the future of the financial sector, organized by Andreas Dombret and Patrick Kenadjian. The event takes place under the academic auspices of the ILF and with the support of our knowledge partner, Oliver Wyman, and of Amazon Web Services.


The conference will ask the question: The next systemic financial crisis – where might it come from? A distinguished group of senior representatives from the public and private sectors will discuss the issues around four groups of issues:
 

- what are the major macroeconomic factors the financial sector faces;

- what issues in particular affect the regulated service providers;

- what issues do non-bank financial institutions pose in particular to the government securities markets, including US Treasuries and UK Gilts; and

- what are the challenges from crypto assets and cybersecurity.
 

Klaas Knot, Chair of the Financial Stability Board, will be delivering the keynote address. Other confirmed representatives of the public sector include Claudio Borio, Head of the Monetary and Economic Department of the Bank for International Settlements, Jose-Manuel Campa, Chairperson of the European Banking Authority, Michael Hsu, Acting Comptroller of Currency of the United States, Martin Moloney, Secretary General of the International Organization of Securities Commissions, Caroline Pham, Commissioner of the US Commodities and Futures Corporation and Cecilia Skingsley, Head of the BIS Innovation Hub. Confirmed speakers of the private sector include Torry Bernsten, CEO Europe and Americas, Standard Chartered Bank, Edward Bowles, Global Director of Public Policy, Meta Financial Technologies, Joanna Cound, Managing Director and Head Of Government Affairs and Public Policy, Europe, BlackRock and Hedwige Nuyens, CEO International Banking Federation.

Next January, developments on the COVID front permitting, we are hoping to present the conference on a hybrid basis, offering the opportunity to attend in person on the Westend Campus of Goethe University in Frankfurt, or remotely. We expect the conference to run from 9:00 to approximately 5:00 pm CET. Remote attendance will be free, but advance registration is required. An invitation with a full program will follow.
