On 21 March 2017 the BSB held a morning event entitled Worthy of trust? Law, ethics and culture in banking, kindly hosted by the Bank of England. This panel discussion was chaired by BSB Chairman Dame Colette Bowe, and brought together three eminent speakers: Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York William C Dudley and the Rt. Hon. the Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, to explore an issue of shared importance; the relationship between law, ethics and culture in creating a banking sector that is worthy of trust.
In the lead-up to the event we commissioned a series of blog pieces from a wide range of interested parties including our Board members, bankers, academics and law professionals, who all wrote about trustworthiness and banking from their own perspectives.
Following the event we have produced a brochure pulling together the full blog series, the panellists’ remarks from the event, an interview given by our Deputy Chairman Sir Brendan Barber on the morning of the event, and a link to the full recording of the event.
