In his speech on the 23rd of September, the Chancellor declared: “We need a new approach for a new era, focused on growth”. Since financial markets play a crucial role in promoting economic growth and stability, the new government is planning on “an ambitious package of regulatory reforms” to ensure that they do their part. But what exactly should that package of reforms include? And with a government prepared to act as boldly as this one in pursuit of its objectives, no option is off the table. This panel features a range of financial market experts who will explore how the government can reform financial regulation to improve the performance of the UK economy.
