CIGI '12 Session 2 - Global Financial Regulation & International Governance of Global Capital Flows
The second session focused on attaining a suitable international regulatory framework for successful global financial integration. Such a framework would reduce the risk of future crises and ensure financing for the investment and innovation that will drive growth going forward. If there is one key lesson to be gleaned from the crisis, it is that the evolution of financial markets and the integration of financial systems outpaced the development of international regulatory frameworks for the governance of global capital. In effect, financial markets are internationally integrated, but prudential regulation and supervision is nationally based. In this environment, financial firms exploited gaps in legal and regulatory frameworks in a process of "regulatory arbitrage" to engage in excessive risk-taking that put the entire global economy at risk. The session looked at international financial regulatory reform, including the implementation of new capital rules, strengthened cross-border resolution regimes and a framework for containing and mitigating potential risks from the so-called "shadow" banking system that operates outside the regulated banking sector. Strengthening the FSB is also key to the success of international financial regulation reforms. Revisions to the FSB Charter, endorsed by the G20 leaders, for placing the FSB on "an enduring organizational footing, with legal personality, strengthened governance, greater financial autonomy and enhanced capacity to coordinate the development and implementation of financial regulatory policies" would be the first step to achieving this goal. Prompt implementation of such Charter changes and a review of the FSB's representation structure would further reinforce the role of the FSB.

Financial Regulation: Back to the Future?
Systemic Risk Centre and Law and Financial Markets Project public lecture Date: Tuesday 10 January 2017 Time: 6.30-8.00pm Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE Speaker: Timothy G. Massad (Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission) Chair: Dr Eva Micheler (SRC, Department of Law) The global financial crisis caused massive unemployment, destroyed trillions in wealth, and triggered an international effort to strengthen the regulation of financial markets and institutions. Will the Brexit referendum and the 2016 U.S. election bring fundamental changes to that path? Mr. Massad has been on the front lines of the U.S. effort to combat the crisis and reform the international financial regulatory system, currently as Chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and formerly as Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability at the U.S. Treasury. As head of the U.S. government agency responsible for regulating the nearly $450 trillion futures and swaps markets, much of which is global in nature, Chairman Massad will bring his unique perspective to the future of the financial market regulatory framework agreed to by the G20 Leaders.

G20 - Strengthening International Financial Regulation
The G20 has been the core crisis committee in the wake of the recent global uncertainty. Among its first and major tasks has been to tighten the rules and enforcement of financial regulation. It has done so by outlining global standards and demanding national enforcement, while also creating the Financial Stability Board. In this video, international affairs experts are asked to reflect on what the G20 has don in this area, and what tasks remain to avert future economic crises.

AGAOGLU INVİTES THE REGİON’S INVESTORS EXCLUSİVELY TO THE LAUNCH OF WORLD’S NEWEST FİNANCİAL CENTRE AT CİTYSCAPE GLOBAL 2015 Istanbul Financial Centre (IFC) project had its world premiere in Cityscape 2015 with a prestigious ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:00pm along with its introductory film on 8th of September 2015 at their booth S3 – E10 with the presence of Turkish Consul General, H.E. Erdem Ozan. The project was inspired by studying examples of prominent financial centers around the world. Financial centers in New York, London, Dubai and in the Far East were all examined to identify needs and develop the similar business model in Turkey. The Istanbul International Financial Center project, located in one of the most prominent areas of Istanbul that promises a prestigious investment, is a LEED Gold certificate candidate; a globally accepted certificate for green buildings. The project is slated to initially turn Istanbul into a regional financial hub and eventually grow into a global financial hub. Istanbul International Financial Center project will rise over a 303,000 m2 land space and 3,181,116m2 of construction area. Its architecture will embody Ottoman influences from the Grand Bazaar and the Topkapı Palace. Headquarters of prominent institutions, such as Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, Turkish Republic Ziraat Bank, Halk Bank, Vakıflar Bank, Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency and Capital Markets Board of Turkey will also be present within the project. Additionally, the project will consist of four main regions and also host private management and audit companies, several buildings that belong to banks and financial institutions, a congress and cultural centre and houses as well as support and service units. Ali El Salih, the foreign customer relations manager of Agaoglu, states “Istanbul International Financial Center Project, with its transportation, sustainability, structural, mechanical, electrical, geotechnical, security systems, information technology and a world-class quality of infrastructure disciplines will enable the finance center to be a benchmark project amongst other financial centers and it is located at the most valuable land to investment in Istanbul.” Tax Advantages to Foreign Investors The IFC project will be subject to separate regulations, by introducing a special mechanism in order to support the Financial Centre business model. Tax, allocation of investment, infrastructure works and services will be placed into this special incentive arrangement, hence encouraging foreign investment. IFC is a Project Supported by The Turkish Government IFC project has been established with the collaboration of Ministry of Development in Turkey and it is under the guarantee of Emlak Konut endorsed by TOKİ Prime Ministry. Major government and semi government entities will be presented with their IFC offices in Istanbul.

10 Nov 2016, FinTech, RegTech and the Reconceptualization of Financial Regulation
The regulatory changes and technological developments following the 2008 Global Financial Crisis are fundamentally changing the nature of financial markets, services and institutions. At the juncture of these two phenomena lies regulatory technology or ‘RegTech’ – the use of technology, particularly information technology, in the context of regulatory monitoring, reporting and compliance. RegTech developments are leading towards a paradigm shift necessitating the reconceptualization of financial regulation. RegTech to date has been focused on the digitization of manual reporting and compliance processes, for example in the context of know-your-customer requirements. However, the potential of RegTech is far greater – it has the potential to enable a close to real-time and proportionate regulatory regime that identifies and addresses risk while also facilitating far more efficient regulatory compliance. In this seminar, based on a new paper [ https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2847806 ], we argue that the transformative nature of technology will only be captured by a new approach that sits at the nexus between data, digital identity and regulation. We seek to expose the inadequacy and lack of ambition of simply digitizing analogue processes in a digital financial world. The development of financial technology (‘FinTech’), the rapid developments in emerging markets, and the recent pro-active stance of regulators in developing regulatory sandboxes, all represent a unique combination of events, which could facilitate the transition from one regulatory model to another. Speakers: Professor Douglas W. Arner is a Professor of Law at the University of Hong Kong and Project Coordinator of a major five-year project funded by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council Theme-based Research Scheme on “Enhancing Hong Kong's Future as a Leading International Financial Centre”. In addition, he is Co-Director of the Duke University-HKU Asia-America Institute in Transnational Law, and a Senior Visiting Fellow of Melbourne Law School, University of Melbourne. Douglas served as Head of the HKU Department of Law from 2011 to 2014 and from 2006 to 2011 he was the Director of HKU’s Asian Institute of International Financial Law, which he co-founded in 1999 along with the LLM in Corporate and Financial Law (of which he serves as Director along with the Faculty’s new LLM in Compliance and Regulation). He has published fifteen books and more than 100 articles, chapters and reports on international financial law and regulation, including most recently Reconceptualising Global Finance and its Regulation (Cambridge 2016). Douglas is a member of the Hong Kong Financial Services Development Council and of the International Advisory Board of the Australian Centre for International Finance and Regulation. Janos Barberis is a Research Fellow of the Asian Institute of International Financial Law at the University of Hong Kong. He was previously involved in the establishment of a new retail bank in the United Kingdom. He now supports the development of Hong Kong as a leading FinTech hub as the Founder of FinTech.HK and SuperCharger. He also is the co-editor of The FinTech Book, published by Wiley.

Top 10 Offshore Tax Havens You Can Still Stash Your Cash
Get more Tips here! www.destinationtips.com Heads of state, former heads of state, heads of government, former heads of government, relatives and associates of government officials (as well as a fair share of celebrities) have all been exposed for hiding money in offshore accounts. Here is a list of the top 10 Biggest Tax Havens in the World. (Ranking is based on a combination of its secrecy score and scale weighting) #10 United Arab Emirates One of the world’s best known tax havens or secrecy jurisdictions.It has a low-tax environment and a complex array of free trade zones with multiple secrecy facilities and lax enforcement. A large slice of the inbound money comes in the form gold. Secrecy Score: 77% Tax Haven Status: Tiny #9 Bahrain An island of hospitality to banks and businesses and also one of the biggest global centers for Islamic finance. There is no corporate income tax, personal income tax or capital gains tax. Bahrain also has a wide network of tax treaties with a number of developing countries. Secrecy Score: 74% Tax Haven Status: Small #8 Germany Between $2.81 to $3.38 trillion of tax exempt interest-bearing assets held by non-residents as of August 2013. Germany does not sufficiently exchange tax-related information with a multitude of other jurisdictions and despite recent progress with its anti-money laundering framework, major loopholes and many implementation deficits still exist Secrecy Score: 56% Tax Haven Status: Huge but Shifty #7 Lebanon Many members of the population are high-net worth individuals. Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006. Lebanon’s political and military troubles over recent decades have disrupted the offshore financial sector, but it has proved astonishingly resilient. Secrecy Score: 79% Tax Haven Status: Small and Secure #6 Luxembourg The most important private banking and wealth management center in the Eurozone. It has 143 banks holding almost $800 billion in assets, over $300 billion of which are in the secretive private banking sector and is a center of lax financial regulation and is still one of the world’s most important financial centers. Breaking professional secrecy can result in a prison sentence Secrecy Score: 55% Tax Haven Status: Huge #5 The Cayman Islands Banking assets worth $1.4 trillion in June 2014. Hoststing over 11,000 mutual and other funds with a net asset value of $2.1 trillion. It has 200 banks, over 140 trust companies and over 95,000 registered companies and retains many secrecy features plus laws that can put people in jail not only for exposing confidential information, but merely for asking for it. Secrecy Score: 65% Tax Haven Status: Aggressively Protective #4 Singapore A major wealth management center, with $1.4 trillion in assets under management in 2013. In 2014 it become Asia’s largest foreign exchange trading center. It hosts a lack of serious reforms to its corporate secrecy regime and a lack of interest in creating public registries of beneficial ownership. Secrecy Score: 69% Tax Haven Status: Intentionally Blind? #3 USA The U.S. has led the charge in combating international tax evasion using offshore financial accounts. However, the U.S. also provides a multitude of secrecy and tax-free facilities for non U.S. residents It's one of the few places left where advisers are actively promoting accounts that will remain secret from overseas authorities. Secrecy Score: 60% Tax Haven Status: Ironic #2 Hong Kong Hong Kong has the second largest stock exchange in Asia after Tokyo with $2.1 trillion under management in April 2015 and over $350 billion in private banking assets. China’s control over Hong Kong has shielded it from global transparency initiatives. It also has not signed the multilateral agreement to initiate automatic information exchange via the CRS. Secrecy Score: 72% Tax Haven Status: See-No-Evil #1 Switzerland Switzerland is the grandfather of the world’s tax havens, known to have introduced Banking Secrecy Laws as far back as 1934 However, in 2010, the US enacted the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act and the Swiss government was ultimately forced to bow to US pressure In 2013, the US government signed a tax treaty that calls for Swiss banks to provide details on their American account holders Secrecy Score: 73% Tax Haven Status: BOSS

LSE Events | Assessing Global Financial Stability
Financial instability can put growth at risk. How should global financial stability issues been analyzed? What is the IMF’s current assessment of global financial stability? During his lecture, Tobias Adrian will discuss the main features of a framework to assess global financial stability in a comprehensive and consistent way. He will also present the analysis of the October 2017 Global Financial Stability Report, which identifies sources of financial instability and the policies to mitigate risks to growth. The report focuses on the interplay between financial and macroeconomic developments, and assesses the degree to which these interactions pose risks that could threaten economic growth. Tobias Adrian, an LSE alumnus, is the Financial Counsellor and Director of the Monetary and Capital Markets Department of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The risk of de-risking -leaving Caribbean financial institutions locked out of global markets
Craig Mair, vice-president of commercial banking at Scotiabank urges political leaders and regulators to do more to stem the fall out from the risk of local financial institutions losing their correspondent banking relationships (CBR) with international money operations. Speaking at the JSE Regional Investments & Capital Markets Conference 2017 held from January 24 to 26 at the Pegasus Hotel, Mair suggested that “our leaders across the Caribbean must do more to clarify ambiguities in regulation and articulate clear, specific guidelines governing how far our banking due diligence must go.” Research shows that international banks in the U.S., Europe and other major money centres around the globe are purging their correspondent banking relationships (CBRs) in order to de-risk. The result of de-risking is that banks and other financial institutions are being shut out of the global financial system and more profoundly, that certain countries and regions become unbanked or at least, less-banked. Mair shared with the JSE conference audience that, "As of May 2016, 16 banks in the Caribbean across five countries have lost all or some of their CBRs. In Barbados, eight financial institutions have had their CBRs severed; five of seven banks in Belize have had their CBRs terminated. In the Bahamas, two domestic and four international banks have also have had their CBR brought to an end.. In Haiti, all local banks have either seen their CBR severed or truncated and here in Jamaica, international correspondent banks have restricted or terminated there relationships with a number of our financial institutions.” And one o the main reasons, ironically for de-risking is not risk, but the cost to comply with regulations that protect against risk. Research funded by the Council of Europe suggests that international banks are responsible for due diligence of their clients and how well banks do due diligence of their own clients. The Council of Europe reports that this is a costly process. Compliance officers at international banks are required to have an in-depth knowledge of the legal and regulatory framework in their country and that knowledge should extend to jurisdictions in which their banks have CBRs. And when compliance requirements are not adhered to, it can be very costly in regards to fines paid by the international banks. According to Mair, “following the 9/11 terror attacks where heighten concern for financing terrorism and money laundering arose, there has been several significant fines imposed on international financial institutions. Most recently, Western Union agreed to pay over US$500 million to the US government to compensate victims of fraud, principally scammers.” Interestingly, the same research papers that outline how costly it is for international banking partners to scrutinize the compliance of their Caribbean banking partners also note that stock exchanges are significant contributors to reducing the risk of poor financial practices. In research provided by the OCED it is noted that stock exchanges contribute to corporate governance practices through its listing and disclosure standards as well as monitoring compliance for listed companies. Mair noted that, “the termination or threat of termination of CBRs directly threaten our local economy. So, what have done about it? Jamaica has sought to handle de-risking by pro-actively assuring our partners that our compliance frameworks are robust. Jamaica is currently fully compliant with the core and key regulations of the international Financial Action Task Force and we have signed FACTA agreements with the US Government. Through the GOJ and Central Bank, we have seen amendment in legislation to strengthen customer due diligence and heighten the use of risk based processes to identify risk.” In recognizing how delicate the balance is to keep the CBR as part of the financial framework in Jamaica, Mair suggests the following: 1.strengthen our framework on a uniform regulation framework and data collection 2.Regional leaders must intensify effort to persuade international correspondent banking partners to articulate how far data collection on customers must go. 3.Financial institutions need to step up the communication to customers of the importance of being compliant 4.Ask the regulators to heighten their monitoring of the financial sector’s activities.
