Throughout this year, the Federal Trust, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Global Policy Institute are jointly organising a series of panel discussions on European economic themes.

In the third of these discussions we will focus on financial market regulations. Do regulations help to avoid crises like the current one? What kind of regulation is efficient? Which market activities have to be included in the regulatory framework? These and other questions will be discussed among our panellists who are representatives of the financial markets.

The speakers are as follows

Stephen Barber, Senior Lecturer, London South Bank University and author of ‘Tragedy of Riches’

Richard Bassett, Executive Director West LB, and author of ‘Restoring Confidence in the Financial Markets’

Thomas Nienaber, Portfolio Manager, Arrowgrass Capital Partners

Frederick Studemann-Schulenburg, Analysis Editor, Financial Times will chair the discussion tbc.
