Reaffirming Our Foundations: Risk & Regulation, Culture & Governance

As the U.S. economy enters its seventh year of the post-crisis era, financial institutions continue to adapt to the “New Normal”. What has been accomplished? What remains? The economy continues to show positive signs of a sustainable recovery, but there are still challenges ahead. As the immediacy of the Great Recession recedes, what are some of the best practices that have led us to stronger governance? How do we build on those foundations for sustainable growth in a post-crisis world? What are the unresolved issues?

The eighth annual Risk Conference, hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and DePaul University’s Center for Financial Services, explores these questions with an array of noteworthy speakers and panelists that include perspectives from industry professionals, academics, and regulators.
