Fifth Annual Risk Conference

Five years after the onset of the financial crisis, the financial services industry is still working through a process of rehabilitation. Balance sheets are stronger, but problem areas remain. The contours of the new regulation are becoming clearer, but implementing new dictates will require a lot of work from bankers and their supervisors. Instiutions are anxious to reinforce safety and soundness, but must also find avenues to restore profitability.


This year's conference will explore the trade-offs involved on each of these fronts. Practitioners, regulators and industry observers will contribute their thoughts on what might be on the horizon.


If you have any question, you may contact Shirley Brown (see contact information in the column to your right) or Linda L. Nowicki via e-mail or by telephone at (312) 322-8185.


This conference is not open to the media or the general public. Participants are requested to use discretion in sharing the content of the conference with professional colleagues. The use of electronic recording devices is prohibited.
