More than five years after the financial crisis, there is still an open debate about what it would mean to have a financial sector that works for the benefit of the real economy, and how close we are to achieving that. This has been matched by a new interest in solutions, including both more aggressive implementation of current reforms and policies that aren't even on the radar.

This report will bring together leading experts on a range of issues and approaches to creating a more stable financial system, from ensuring a fair marketplace to ending Too Big To Fail. As it considers issues related to Dodd-Frank but also looks beyond current policy, the report will be necessary reading for anyone dealing with, or even just concerned about, the future of financial regulation. Copies of the report will be provided to all attendees.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
