Food for thought webinar - Do we still need to worry about bank misconduct? 2020

Professor Barbara Casu recently took part in a webinar hosted by Professor Daniel Beunza as part of the Business School Autumn Series of events.

The event focussed on what is conduct risk and how can financial institutions manage it? Banks are keen to argue that misconduct episodes are legacy issues, but there are emerging vulnerabilities which might lead to new problems. Misconduct tends to rise during crises and new technologies, products and competitors continue to concern regulators. This session will review the main types of financial misconduct and what it might mean for banks striving to foster a more ethical culture and regaining customers’ trust.
