Les objectifs du cours

In 2008, the G20 committed to fundamental reform of the global financial system to address the major fault lines that caused the crisis. Banks, particularly in the US originated a large volume of credits to low quality borrowers. Those credits were re-distributed widely to the whole financial system, through securitization. The opaqueness of the securitized market added to the stress and prevented regulators from pinpointing the risks. Against this background, the G20 countries committed to enlarge the scope of regulation to all players and markets, including credit rating agencies, derivatives and hedge funds. For the first time, no market and no market instrument would escape oversight. Banking regulation has been strengthened, with the Basel III package of reforms being its centrepiece. Full, timely and consistent implementation of Basel III is fundamental to a sound and properly functioning banking system that is able to support economic recovery and growth on a sustainable basis.The supervisory architecture has also been reshuffled with a Financial Stability Committee being set up.

This lecture aims at giving the students an overview of recent and future regulatory reforms, both on the bank and market sides.
