Food for thought webinar - Do we still need to worry about bank misconduct?
The event focussed on what is conduct risk and how can financial institutions manage it? Banks are keen to argue that misconduct episodes are legacy issues, but there are emerging vulnerabilities which might lead to new problems. Misconduct tends to rise during crises and new technologies, products and competitors continue to concern regulators. This session will review the main types of financial misconduct and what it might mean for banks striving to foster a more ethical culture and regaining customers’ trust.
Monitoring Misconduct: Maintaining and Developing Banking Standards
The Centre for Banking Research launched the CBR Conduct Cost Project report on 15th September, at an online event Monitoring Misconduct: Maintaining and Developing Banking Standards. José Manuel Campa, Chairperson of the European Banking Authority (EBA), delivered a lecture about bank misconduct, banking standards and public trust in financial institutions.
CBR Conduct Cost Project report discusses the financial consequences of bank misconduct for twenty of the world’s leading banks, from January 2008 to December 2018.
