By September 2018 a decade will have elapsed since the global financial crisis. In those 10 years there has been a significant body of international regulatory change in financial services and significant ground work for many changes still to come. In this short seminar Peter provides an overview of the internationalisation of financial services regulatory policy and considers some of the key policies of the international standard setters including the Financial Stability Board, the Joint Forum and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors. He concludes with an outline of the some key impact areas for Hong Kong regulation and businesses here.
