Developments in Trans Atlantic Capital Markets & Financial Services Industries

The provision of a supportive environment in both Europe and the US for industry to prosper whilst developing the highest levels of supportive regulation is central to the challenge of building the foundations of the trans Atlantic Capital and financial services market.

Thus, the perspective of Ireland's former Minister for Finance, Charlie Mc Creevy, and current EU Commissioner responsible for financial services is of central importance to this.

For Europe, and for the global economy, the next frontiers beckon, in particular the relationship with the United States, at a time when US financial services giants increasingly struggle to come to terms with the global growth of their own industries, not least in the EU.

In this context, the conference will hear the views of the SEC Commissioner responsible for external relations, Paul Atkins who will be joining Commissioner McCreevy in a dialogue on key issues regarding the future directions of transatlantic capital markets and financial services regulation.

They will be joined by a cast of leading thinkers including Bob Wigley, chairman EMEA, Merrill Lynch, Sir Andrew Crockett, former head of the Bank for International Settlements, and president of JPMorgan Chase International, and James Leigh-Pemberton, chairman of European investment banking and managing director of Credit Suisse Securities (Europe).
