The direction of regulatory changes was both clear and needed – greater capital and liquidity buffers to protect individual firms and the financial system from future large-scale crises. But finding the best mix of regulation to achieve both financial stability and financial dynamism remains a work in progress. The financial industry, regulators and researchers have now had several years’ experience with the new financial regulatory regime, and this conference was an opportunity to do a preliminary stock-taking on the effectiveness of regulatory changes and to discuss and consider future improvements.
