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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Regulatory framework for IFSC in India: The experience of GIFT IFSC, Dipesh Shah
Description: International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) is considered as a game changer for providing International Financial Services from Global Financial Centre in India. In the absence of IFSC in India, it is estimated that India is losing around US $ 50 billion per year (2015) which will grow to US $ 120 billion by 2025. Govt. of India announced regulatory frame work for IFSC in India on April 10, 2015. In a short span of two years, GIFT International Financial Services Centre has attracted International Financial Services with 9 Banks, 4 Insurance Companies, 2 leading Exchanges and around 100 broking entities. The banking vertical have already completed around USD 2 billion transactions from GIFT IFSC. International Exchange for the first time in the country started trading of foreign stock futures covering Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and JP Morgan. The experience of GIFT IFSC in this regard is useful learning for the development of International Financial Services Centre in India.

Abu Dhabi Regulator Launches Crypto Regulations in Financial Free Zone
Abu Dhabi Regulator Launches Crypto Regulations in Financial Free Zone. The regulator for Abu Dhabi’s international financial center and free zone has launched its regulatory framework that will encompass spot crypto services offered by exchanges, custodians and other intermediaries in the area. In a bid to foster a safer and thriving marketplace for cryptocurrency firms, the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) – the country capital’s international financial center and free zone – has established its ‘crypto asset regulatory framework’ for companies and firms operating in the zone. The launch follows a public consultation, the ADGM said in a statement on Monday, with local and global respondents that led to ‘several refinements’ of the framework before its release. An excerpt from the regulations [PDF] explains: The FSRA has addressed issues around consumer protection, safe custody, technology governance, disclosure/transparency, Market Abuse and the regulation of Crypto Asset Exchanges in a manner similar to the regulatory approach taken in relation to securities exchanges globally. Broadly, the FSRA has classified cryptocurrencies, or “crypto assets” as commodities. Security tokens issued will be subject to relevant regulatory requirements while ‘utility tokens’ will also be classified as commodities. Any derivatives or off-shoot funds related to crypto assets or tokens will also be regulated as ‘Specified Investments’ under the Financial Services and Markets Regulations. “We are encouraged by the significant global and regional interest from exchanges, custodians, intermediaries and other institutions to our crypto spot regulatory framework,” said FSRA of ADGM chief Richard Teng. He added: “Globally, responsible crypto asset players are seeking a regulatory regime upholding high standards that foster market confidence…Our engagement with fellow global regulators also validated our position that the key risks highlighted have to be addressed for crypto assets to be more widely accepted and institutionalised.” Under the new regulations, operators looking to establish a new exchange will be required to be an initial authorization fee of $125,000 and an annual fee of $60,000. Crypto custodians like wallet firms will have to cough up $20,000 initially and $15,000 annually. Described as a “key change” implemented after the public consultation, the regulator has also imposed a levy based on dialing trading on a sliding scale basis. For exchanges that see an average transaction value of less than $10 million, the levy imposed will be 0.0015%, up to $15,000 each month. On the other end, exchanges with an average daily value of over $250 million would minimally have to pay the FSRA a 0.0006% cut, a minimum of $150,000 per month. Earlier in October, the government of Abu Dhabi published its guidance for initial coin offerings (ICOs) through the FSRA after deciding that a “one size fits all” approach to cover cryptocurrencies and ICOs would be “inappropriate”. Elsewhere in Asia, the Philippines’ government has also embraced cryptocurrency exchanges and blockchain companies by legalizing the entry of 10 industry firms to operate in a state-controlled, tax-friendly economic zone.

Financial regulations and practices: Implications of financial regulatory reforms for Asia
Post-global financial crisis, we have seen a whole slew of regulations intended to curb observed excesses in financial practices, such as unhealthy leverage, RWA over-optimisation, balance sheet management excesses, et cetera. These regulations will shape financial practices going forward. With retail investors and consumer protection in mind, stronger oversight of sales practices for investment products would be welcomed. On the other hand, these regulations would also alter the incentive structure for banks, with macro implications. What is the downside risk of the real economy being impacted? This seminar on the topic of "Financial regulations and practices: Implications of financial regulatory reforms for Asia" discusses the potential impact of similar constraining measures of the local central bank, as regulator, on bank financing for real estate purchases, auto loans and unsecured credit within the Singapore context. The event by Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics - Centre for Asset Securitisation and Management in Asia at Singapore Management University, sees esteemed speakers such as Robert Prugue, Senior Managing Director and Head of Asia-Pacific, Lazard Asset Management, Philip Fernandez, Corporate Treasurer of DBS Group, and Fock Siew Tong, Visting Professor of Finance, Lee Kong Chian School of Business, sharing their views.

Breakfast Dialogue: The Politics of Global Capital
Capital seeks return, and is indispensible for economic activity.
