8:00-9:30 a.m. Regulatory Reform – Systemic Risk, Risk Governance, Transparency
and Capital Changes
Moderator: Steve Lindo, PRMIA
Presenters: Colin Lawrence. Financial Services Authority; Terri Vaughan, National Association of Insurance Commissioners; Allan Medolwitz, Federal Housing Finance Board
The financial crisis has created significant activity toward increased supervision and regulation. Financial markets, in particular, have undergone substantial transformations, precipitating rapid actions by central banks and other regulatory institutions to maintain market liquidity and funding availability. In this session, leaders from various regulatory forums will explore the directions and impact of regulatory reform, the changes in roles and responsibilities and even whether a U.S. insurance regulator should join the financial stability regulator. Leaders will examine regulating institutions “too big to fail,” global coordination of senior supervisors and their views, congressional views and keeping enterprise risk management competency and balance across all regulators without losing regulatory corporate memory. Each participant will provide brief remarks followed by a lively panel discussion.
