23 Nov 2015: ILF Conference on Bank Culture and Ethics


November 23, 2015
9:45 am to 6:30 pm
Frankfurt am Main

The financial industry is still struggling to regain public trust seven years after a financial crisis which remains largely identified in the public mind with greed, excessive risk-taking and generally weak governance and ethics in financial institutions. The significant progress which has been made through international initiatives to address other weaknesses in the financial system have evidently not sufficed to reestablish the legitimacy of financial institutions in the public mind, leading to the conclusion that we must address more directly the question of culture and ethics at the firms involved.

This will be the topic of a day-long conference at the ILF bringing together leaders from the industry, regulators and academia, including, among many other distinguished speakers, John Cryan, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Bank, Danièle Nouy, President of the Supervisory Board, European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet, Chairman, Group of Thirty, Paul Tucker, Senior Fellow, Harvard Kennedy School and Axel Weber, Chairman, UBS, to discuss how to resolve the core issues involved and reestablish finance as a true profession with broader social obligations and encourage market participants to think of their roles as part of a broader system.
