How FinTech is Shaping the Future of Banking | Henri Arslanian | TEDxWanChai
While FinTech is revolutionizing the banking industry and giving millions of people access to financial services for the first time, new banking models are emerging with FinTech start-ups and tech firms potentially disrupting the status quo. But business schools and universities are not preparing future bankers for these changes, says FinTech thought leader Henri Arslanian. How can designers, programmers and creative thinkers help? Henri Arslanian started his career as a financial markets and funds lawyer in Canada and Hong Kong, after which he spent many years with UBS Investment Bank in Hong Kong. In recent years, he has been teaching graduate courses on Entrepreneurship in Finance at Hong Kong University as an Adjunct Associate Professor, and currently leads the first FinTech course in Asia. His latest book on Entrepreneurship in Finance will be published in late 2016 by Palgrave Macmillan. A member of the Milken Institute’s Young Leaders Circle, Henri is a regular keynote speaker globally on the topic of FinTech and hedge funds and currently sits on a number of finance, academic, civil society and FinTech related boards and advisory boards. Henri is fluent in English, French, Armenian, Spanish and conversational in Mandarin Chinese and has been awarded many academic and industry awards over the years, including the Governor General of Canada Gold Medal for Academic Excellence.

UK FinTech Regulation & Innovation: What’s Next?
A NYPAY Event, July 19, 2016 Over the past few years, the FinTech scenes in London, Copenhagen, and other European cities have proven as vibrant as those in NY, Silicon Valley, and other major US markets – if not more. As regulatory compliance requirements have also exponentially increased, entrepreneurs have responded by launching “RegTech” platforms, which make compliance more efficient via the intelligent use of technology. Join NYPAY and the British Consulate’s UK Trade & Investment for a dialogue that explores the current state of the RegTech market, the impact that different regulatory schemes have on FinTech innovation, and the potential implications of the Brexit on the UK’s position of being a friendly environment for entrepreneurs in this space. Panelists include: Antonia Romeo Her Majesty’s Consul General in New York Paul McCulloch CEO Helm Solutions, Inc., a cyber security and technology firm offering compliance-as-a-service to governments and corporations. Based in both NY and London, Helm is a recent graduate of the Barclays Accelerator. David Hesketh COO Trading Hub, a London-based technology firm with operations in New York that provides trading analytics which can be used to detect financial crimes to regulators, banks, and asset managers. Kurt Vandebroek CEO Ancoax, a London-based software firm providing contextual surveillance and insightful analytics for exchanges, regulators, buy & sell-side firms. The company’s software platform detects market abuse, gives insight on insider trading and provides visibility of trading behavior in real-time and thus provides a tool for automated auditing of transactional data.

Financial Regulation: New Era, New Regulators
The current U.S. administration has undertaken a substantial review of existing financial regulatory structures as part of an effort to increase economic growth and decrease regulatory burden. Both chambers of Congress moved legislation forward designed to overhaul, and in some cases eliminate, portions of the Dodd-Frank legislation passed after the 2008 financial crisis. Ten years after the crisis, what is the state of financial regulations? What is the philosophy that is shaping this new approach? How can regulations continue to safely facilitate the availability of credit to spur growth and create jobs? Moderator Ben White Chief Economic Correspondent, POLITICO Speakers J.

Modern Financial Regulation
BOOK REVIEW MODERN FINANCIAL REGULATION By Jonathan Kirk and James Ross Jordan Publishing ISBN: 978 1 84661 578 8 www.jordanpublishing.co.uk A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO THE IMPORTANT CHANGES IN FINANCIAL SERVICES REGULATION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers The all too recent scandals and upheavals in the financial services sector -- like LIPBOR and PPI -- and others too numerous to mention here -- have had a profound effect on the economy too complicated to mention here either. Suffice to say, changes had to be made, of which all financial and legal practitioners should be aware. So thank you to Jordan Publishing for bringing out, as one of their most recent titles, 'Modern Financial Regulation.' This timely first edition comprehensively covers and explains the changes in the regulation of financial services brought about by the Financial Services Act 2012. The best known is of course, the replacement of the Financial Services Authority (FSA) by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority, a development which seems to have resulted in a more robust regime of regulatory, civil injunctive and criminal enforcement. 'The Financial Services Act,' say the authors, 'ushers in fundamental structural change, a modern era in financial regulation.' It replaces, one hopes, the former and obviously ineffectual 'light touch regulation' with 'greater intervention, enforcement and sanction for the banking and financial services sector. The book is actually a collective work which brings together the insights of a number of expert contributors and authors, with the intention of providing a precise guide to the structural and regulatory changes that have taken place and the institutions that have been recently created. Over 11 chapters, the book discusses clearly and in detail the ways in which the Financial Services Act 2012 has affected other areas of financial regulation, from consumer credit and hire, to payment services, to money laundering, to electronic money and market abuse, as well as insider trading and cartels. Over half the book, however, is taken up quite rightly by the two appendices which include the Financial Services Act itself, reproduced in all its majesty and might in almost 320 pages, plus the three statutory instruments pertaining to the Act in Appendix Two. Produced in handy paperback format, the book is therefore a convenient research resource and reference book, as well as a practitioner's guide to the current regulatory landscape which affects the financial services sector. Also note, for example, the extensive tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments and European materials. And for enhanced ease of use, there is a minutely detailed table of contents and useful index at the back. If you are involved in any way with the financial services sector -- and most people in the City of London are -- you will definitely need a copy of this important new title. The law is stated as at 26 February 2013.

Brexit: Banking and Financial Services
On Thursday 10th November, Brick Court hosted the latest in its series of panel discussions on the legal implications of Brexit. The event was moderated by Mark Hapgood QC, who opened by observing that one of the most important issues arising from Brexit is the impact it will have on banking and financial services in the UK. He posed two questions: what degree of risk is posed to the banking and financial services industries by leaving the EU, and what is the best way to mitigate that risk? Andrew Henshaw QC spoke about the existing passporting arrangements and the position the UK will find itself in if it neither joins the EEA nor negotiates full access to the single market. He considered investment and retail business, banking and insurance and reinsurance, identifying the existence of equivalence decision regimes and the opportunities for third country branches to operate within the EU. He noted that there are many gaps in these systems, and equivalence decisions may be hard to obtain for political reasons. In addition, no equivalence decisions are likely to be taken before the UK leaves the EU, and therefore financial institutions must plan for the worst. Caroline Binham (Financial Times) considered the risk to the pre-eminent position of London with regard to banking and financial services posed by Brexit. She noted that the risk depends on the form that Brexit ultimately takes, but observed that the mood in the City is increasingly sombre. The threats to jobs and GDP are severe, and the contagion effect means that the impact of Brexit will be felt well beyond the banking and finance industries. She also highlighted the fact that EU stands to lose as a result of Brexit, and doubted the attractiveness of relocating financial business to New York following the election of Donald Trump. Damien Bisseker (Credit Suisse) provided an in-house banking perspective. He observed that banks are in a difficult situation. They are under pressure from regulators to have plans in place for the worst case scenario, while it remains unclear what the post-Brexit regulatory framework will look like. Banks are also under time pressure to act. Factors banks must consider include the significance of their business with EEA counterparties, the attractiveness of different jurisdictions and the different models that could be adopted. He also noted the importance both of lobbying by banks and the lobbying of banks by foreign jurisdictions. Finally, he made the practical suggestion that banks should ensure that process agents are available throughout Europe. Jasbir Dhillon QC addressed the likely role for English law in international banking and finance transactions after Brexit. Considering choice of law, he observed that market counterparties are unlikely to move away from English law given its certainty, stability, familiarity and commerciality. Similarly, he expressed the view that market counterparties are likely to continue to prefer English jurisdiction. The knowledgeable judiciary, adherence to the freedom of contract and fidelity to the rule of law all make England an attractive place to litigate. There may even be a shift towards exclusive jurisdiction clauses if the UK ratifies the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements as judgments obtained pursuant to such clauses will be enforceable throughout the EU. Finally, he observed that international arbitration will not be adversely affected by the UK’s departure from the EU. Simon Firth (Linklaters) spoke about the effect of Brexit on derivatives and the future of the ISDA Master Agreement. He also considered that English law will remain the favoured law in the context of derivatives for two key reasons. First, the characteristic series of transactions designed to hedge each other require a consistent choice of law to prevent exposure on any one transaction. In the absence of an obvious alternative to English law, it is unlikely the choice of law will shift. Second, the derivatives market has historically suffered from a lack of predictability as a result of the paucity of case law. However, this has been markedly improved by a series of good judgments from the English courts. A shift to a different choice of law would require his process to be restarted from scratch. The presentations were followed by a lively Q&A session, and comments were invited from the floor. Topics addressed included whether any positives could be seen as resulting from Brexit, the extent to which the UK could or would retain EU standards and legislation after leaving the EU, the market’s view on the model of Brexit likely to be adopted and the relevance of economic difficulties already facing Europe.

Prudential Regulation Authority (United Kingdom)
The Prudential Regulation Authority is a United Kingdom financial services regulatory body, formed as one of the successors to the Financial Services Authority. The authority is structured as a limited company wholly owned by the Bank of England and is responsible for the prudential regulation and supervision of banks, building societies, credit unions, insurers and major investment firms. It sets standards and supervises financial institutions at the level of the individual firm. The PRA was created by the Financial Services Act 2012 and formally began operating alongside the new Financial Conduct Authority on 1 April 2013. As the Bank of England is operationally independent of the Government of the United Kingdom, the PRA is a quasi-governmental regulator, rather than an arm of the government per se. The PRA has its main offices at 20 Moorgate, near the Bank's central offices on Threadneedle Street. This video is targeted to blind users.

10-01-14 School of Advanced Study http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://events.sas.ac.uk/support-research/events/view/14917/Responsibility+and+Accountability+in+the+Financial+Sector Keynote Speaker: Professor Arthur Grimes, NZ-UK Link Foundation Visiting Professor at the School of Advanced Study, University of London Micro-prudential settings and financial markets conduct regulations are important in controlling risk within any country -- no matter how well or poorly performing its macroeconomy. In an environment of pervasive information asymmetries, an unfettered market can lead to socially sub-optimal risk-taking. Some restrictions on financial market participants' activities and disclosure requirements are therefore required. However, adoption of policies that make the financial markets appear low risk, or even risk free, to uninformed participants can result in moral hazard that may produce even less stable outcomes than in a free market. Drawing on New Zealand's relatively light-handed approach to financial market regulation, this lecture examines whether the GFC and other crises are caused not by too little regulation, but instead by too much.

What's wrong with banking regulation today?
Indebtedness is both a consumer and a financial industry problem. Regulatory bodies think more banking regulations will fix the problem. INSEAD Professor of Banking and Finance Jean Dermine is not so sure.

Global Financial Meltdown - One Of The Best Financial Crisis Documentary Films
Meltdown is a four-part investigation into a world of greed and recklessness that brought down the financial world. The show begins with the 2008 crash that pushed 30 million people into unemployment, brought countries to the edge of insolvency and turned the clock back to 1929. But how did it all go so wrong? Lack of government regulation; easy lending in the US housing market meant anyone could qualify for a home loan with no government regulations in place. Also, London was competing with New York as the banking capital of the world. Gordon Brown, the British finance minister at the time, introduced "light touch regulation" - giving bankers a free hand in the marketplace. Meltdown moves on to examine the epidemic of fear that caused the world's banks to stop lending and how the people began their fight back. Finally, it asks how the world can prepare for the next crisis even as it recognises that this one is far from over. We hear about the sheikh who says the crash never happened; a Wall Street king charged with fraud; a congresswoman who wants to jail the bankers; and the world leaders who want a re-think of capitalism. http://www.RebelMystic.com

The Fed and Bank Regulatory Agencies: Finance, Banking - Alan Greenspan (1994)
Bank regulation in the United States is highly fragmented compared with other G10 countries, where most countries have only one bank regulator. In the U.S., banking is regulated at both the federal and state level. Depending on the type of charter a banking organization has and on its organizational structure, it may be subject to numerous federal and state banking regulations. Unlike Japan and the United Kingdom (where regulatory authority over the banking, securities and insurance industries is combined into one single financial-service agency), the U.S. maintains separate securities, commodities, and insurance regulatory agencies—separate from the bank regulatory agencies—at the federal and state level.[1] U.S. banking regulation addresses privacy, disclosure, fraud prevention, anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism, anti-usury lending, and the promotion of lending to lower-income populations. Some individual cities also enact their own financial regulation laws (for example, defining what constitutes usurious lending). A bank's primary federal regulator could be the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board, or the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Within the Federal Reserve Board are 12 districts centered around 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks, each of which carries out the Federal Reserve Board's regulatory responsibilities in its respective district. Credit unions are subject to most bank regulations and are supervised by the National Credit Union Administration. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) establishes uniform principles, standards, and report forms for the other agencies. State-chartered banks are also subject to the regulation and supervision of the state regulatory agency of the state in which they were chartered. State regulation of state-chartered banks applies, in addition to federal regulation. For example, a California state bank that is not a member of the Federal Reserve System would be regulated by both the California Department of Financial Institutions and the FDIC. Likewise, a Nevada state bank that is a member of the Federal Reserve System would be jointly regulated by the Nevada Division of Financial Institutions and the Federal Reserve. State banking laws apply to state-chartered banks and certain non-bank affiliates of federally chartered banks. By statute, and in accordance with judicial interpretation of statutes and the United States Constitution, federal banking statutes (and the regulations and other guidance issued by federal banking regulatory agencies) often preempt state laws regulating certain activities of nationally chartered banking institutions and their subsidiaries. Specific exceptions to the general rule of federal preemption exist such as some contract law, escheat law, and insurance law. One example of Office of Thrift Supervision preemption begins with Section 550.136(a) of the OTS Regulations, providing that “...OTS occupies the field of the regulation of the fiduciary activities of Federal savings associations...Accordingly, Federal savings associations may exercise fiduciary powers as authorized under Federal law, including this part, without regard to State laws that purport to regulate or otherwise affect their fiduciary activities, except to the extent provided in 12 U.S.C. § 1464(n)...or in paragraph (c) of this section.” 12 U.S.C. § 1464(n) authorizes fiduciary activities for federal savings associations, and specifies certain state law requirements that are applicable to federal savings associations. Section 550.136(c) lists six types of state laws that, in certain specified circumstances, are not preempted with respect to federal savings associations. At its core, financial transparency requires financial institutions to implement certain basic controls:[5] they must know who their customers are (so-called know your customer rules); they must understand their customers' normal and expected transactions; and they must keep the necessary records and make the necessary reports on their customers. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) requires financial institutions to assist government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. Specifically, the act requires financial institutions to keep records of cash purchases of negotiable instruments, file reports of cash transactions exceeding $10,000 (daily aggregate amount), and to report suspicious activity that might signify money laundering, tax evasion or other criminal activities. Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act allows financial institutions to place limits on new accounts until the account holder's identity has been verified. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions apply to all U.S. entities including banks. The FFIEC provides guidelines to financial regulators for verifying compliance with the sanctions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_regulation_in_the_United_States
