Why you should attend

The reputational integrity of the finance sector has been very badly damaged in recent decades, with one scandal after, another including of course the Global Financial Crisis itself. 

As a consequence, the Transparency Task Force is initiating and facilitating a global conversation about what needs to be done to address the real underlying causes of the malpractice, malfeasance, misconduct and mis-selling that has plagued the finance sector for far too long, causing extensive consumer detriment and a collapse in trust and confidence. 

If you believe there is scope for the USA’s finance sector to serve society better, this is definitely an event for you, because we’ll be working hard to galvanise support for the positive, progressive and purposeful finance reform that is so desperately needed.

We know there are many great ideas that can help drive the transformational change; and we want to shine a big bright light on those ideas and the people that can bring them to life. 

We’ll be tackling many important questions head-on, such as:

  • What are the underlying forces that continue to drive poor market conduct?
  • Are the USA’s financial regulators using their powers effectively?
  • How much of an issue is regulatory capture in the USA?
  • Are class actions having to fill the void created by ineffective regulatory enforcement?
  • Are vested interests still getting in the way of consumers getting good outcomes?
  • Is obfuscation and opacity still preventing consumers from getting the information they need?
  • Are the fiduciary standard and best interest rules working as intended?
  • Has the Friedmanite idea of “profit maximisation” spoiled the sector’s culture?
  • Is the Business Round Table thinking on “multi-stakeholder” starting to have an influence?
  • Is the regulatory framework in the USA working as it should? – if not, what can be done?

Through the many discussions we are having with people around the world, we are actively creating a framework for finance reform; please attend so you can be included in the conversation.

Here's the programme and timings so far...
