Link the dots between significant events in banking and contemporary practices:

In this talk we gave a detailed overview of the origins of contemporary banking practices, often rooted in regulation. We walked participants through significant developments over the past 10 years and brought them up to speed with a contextualized understanding of banking today.

We welcomed attendees from Norton Rose Fulbright, RPC, BLP, Baker & McKenzie, 39 Essex Street, Winston & Strawn, 3 Verulam Buildings and Brick Court

Topics discussed included:

i) A brief history of modern finance;

ii) The rules and regulations that preceded the Great Financial Crisis of 2008;

iii) The aftermath of the Crisis and how banking has since evolved;

iv) The contemporary landscape of finance and implications for lawyers.

Although the primary focus will be on investment banks we will also explore key concepts related to commercial and savings banks, as well as other financial institutions.

A hearty breakfast will be on hand for participants, along with excellent teas and coffees from the Delaunay brasserie.

The presentation will be led by Ambasuthan Jananayagam, Founder and CEO of Acumen.

Our next event will be on Instructing Experts. To see more about this event click here:
