The Future of Banking: Challenges and opportunities in an era of transformational technology

Held on Tuesday, September 24, at ING


  • Philip Augar

  • Tara Rice (Bank for International Settlements)

  • Mark Cliffe (ING)

  • Nicolas Veron (Bruegel & Peterson Institute for International Economics)

  • Kathryn Petralia (Kabbage)

  • Thomas Philippon (NYU Stern & CEPR)



Many of you will know the Geneva Association, which has led the way in thinking about the future of the financial system – and about the regulatory issues that will arise. Its 22nd report covers what “transformational” technology – FinTech and BigTech to us, I guess – can do to bank business models, and how regulators might respond.

One of the key authors of the report is Tara Rice, currently with the BIS, which she joined from BlackRock at the beginning of this year. She was previously Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Financial Stability and Regulation at the US Treasury, and head of the global financial institutions section at the Fed. We are delighted that she has agreed to come to London and to talk about the report.

This is not (strictly) a CSFI event – but we did manage to find the very best moderator for the evening, our old friend Philip Augar. I am sure you know Philip – author of “The Death of Gentlemanly Capitalism”, “The Bank that Lived a Little” and several other books (and many articles).

The idea is to have a lively discussion (17:30-19:00), and to follow that with refreshments. Seems like a good plan to me. If you would like to avail yourself of ING’s hospitality, please let us know by emailing or by calling the Centre on 0207 621 1056.


Kind regards
