Building trust: Responsible banking in an age of disruption

This panel will discuss the evolving digital landscape and the need for a global approach that fosters people’s trust through a fair deal for users, real competition, transparency in data protection and practices, fair taxation and responsible banking in a digital environment.

Panelists will discuss the importance of incentives and recognition in reinforcing responsible behaviour, short-term versus long-term visions and, drawing on their own experiences, how to measure success. The participants will also discuss challenges to responsible models in the new political environment.

Coffee break

Rules of the game for the digital age

Two new participants in financial services will briefly present their respective products or services to set the stage for a conversation on “Rules of the game for the digital age.”

Participants will discuss the challenges in finding the right balance between benefits for consumers, fair competition (“same activity, same rules”), innovation, customer protection, prudential requirements and cybersecurity, focusing on how citizens and the economy can be better served. The competing and complementary capacities of users, Bigtech, new techs and incumbent financial services will be considered, as well as the challenges of global cooperation and coordination.

Inclusive & Sustainable growth: defining value

This panel will examine emerging trends in the definition and measurement of value generated by responsible behaviours and policies that drive sustainable growth.

It will do so from the perspective of regulators and investors, and will consider issues such as governance around ESG issues; measuring the impact of business activities; and disclosure. The panel will also examine the best responses to challenges to sustainable models in the new political and regulatory environment.

Lunch

Perspectives and challenges to growth in a changing environment

Taking into account the political, monetary, markets and social backdrop, this panel will discuss prospects for and challenges to growth from the perspective of key investors and monetary authorities.

They will examine investment strategies and opportunities in the new political and macro environment and the role of responsible business in investment decisions. Participants will also discuss the role of regulation, monetary policy and prudential requirements in promoting macroeconomic growth and responsible banking.
