The Institute supported the Florence School of Banking and Finance (FBF) executive seminar held on 28-29 June on the ‘New World of Financial Stability’ at the European University Institute (EUI).

This event, held under the Chatham House rules, gathers yearly high-profile speakers from European institutions, from governments and financial supervisory authorities, as well as from the private sector and academia to discuss and review the most pressing challenges for banking and finance.

Looking at both banking and non-banking actors, the seminar assessed the framework and practice for European regulation and supervision of financial institutions, assessed the market impact of the developments in the Single Market, and discussed the risks and opportunities stemming from new technologies, reviewing current oversight gaps and exploring possible remedies.

Vittorio Grilli, Chairman of the Corporate & Investment Bank, EMEA at J.P. Morgan and by Simon Gleeson, Partner at Clifford Chance delivered the keynote addresses. Other speakers included Boštjan Jazbec (Single Resolution Board), Philippe Allard (European Banking Authority), Steffen Kern (ESMA) and Ignazio Angeloni (SAFE Research Center, University of Frankfurt).

In April, the Institute sponsored the annual conference of the Florence School of Banking and Finance on “European financial infrastructure in the face of new challenges”.
