The Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation is a forum for debate and research about the future of the international finance services sector.
Brussels for Breakfast
"This will be our 124th meeting - and there’s no getting away from ‘Brexit’. Nonetheless, there is still a truckload of European regulation coming down the pike that will affect the City, regardless of whether 'Brexit' is 'hard', 'soft' or otherwise.
"To help guide us through all the latest developments, this time we'll be joined by our old friend Nicolas Veron, a senior fellow at Bruegel in Brussels and a visiting fellow at the Peterson Institute in Washington."
PLSA Defined Benefit Taskforce
"Since the Pensions and Lifetime saving Association launched a taskforce to examine the urgent issues facing defined benefit pension schemes, things have got even worse. At the end of August the near 6,000 DB schemes covered by the UK’s Pension Protection Fund were an aggregate £460bn in deficit – about 50% more than at the end of May – and only about one in six schemes were in surplus.
"We are delighted that Ashok Gupta, chair of the taskforce, has agreed to walk us through the early findings. Joining him to discuss the issues will be David Fairs, part of the leadership team of KPMG's People Consulting Practice, and Jonathan Ford, chief leader writer for the FT since 2010."
