APRA Chairman Wayne Byres, corporate culture and risk management expert Elizabeth Sheedy and a leading authority on financial services law, UNSW Sydney Professor Pamela Hanrahan, are among the experts speaking about corporate culture and banking accountability at a forum held by UNSW’s Centre for Law, Markets and Regulation (CLMR) on Friday, 23 February 2018.
As the Federal Government’s Banks and Financial Services Royal Commission gets under way, CLMR’s all-day forum in Sydney will examine the latest thinking on how ethics and corporate culture link to law and regulation, whether company directors have a duty of care to the public, and the role of regulation in an era of cryptocurrencies. It will also have a session led by APRA’s Wayne Byres on the Banking Executives Accountability Regime (BEAR).
The forum will address the issues Australian financial and corporate organisations are grappling with right now, says CLMR Director and Professor of Law at UNSW, Dimity Kingsford Smith.
“It is important to understand the legal and regulatory issues and interpretations,” says Professor Kingsford Smith. “It is even better to understand them from those who have everyday involvement combined with the academic research and expertise that the speakers at this conference bring together.”
The forum will also hear from independent speakers on ethics and culture who can offer a critical perspective on the banking industry’s behaviour at this crucial time, Professor Kingsford Smith says.
Forum sessions include:
- Culture and Ethics: How do they connect to law and regulation?
- The Director’s Duty of Care and Diligence: Private, public or both?
- Regulating in the Digital Economy: Bitcoin, blockchain and Initial Coin Offerings
- The Banking Executives Accountability Regime (BEAR)
