I've been asked to draw attention to an invitation to attend a free public event at the European Conference on Banking and the Economy ('Banking: Seeking a New Paradigm') on 29th September 2011 and am happy to do so.
The conference will involve many eminent speakers, including a keynote address by Lord Adair Turner, chairman of the FSA, and will focus on the following themes:
- Bank regulation and bank reform.
- How can local banking be revived in the UK?
- How to get banks to support sustainable, energy-efficient and low-carbon growth
Hosted by the Centre for Banking, Finance and Sustainable Development at the University of Southampton, the conference will take place in Winchester, 55 minutes by train from London Waterloo.
Co-sponsors include HSBC, Winchester City Council, nef (the new economics foundation), Money Macro and Finance Research Group and the International Review of Financial Analysis.
To book a place in the free public event which runs from 15:30 to 19:00, please email J.L.Hazell@soton.ac.uk.
