Financial Regulation and Supervision: Design and Implementation

Course chair: Maria Nieto, Advisor in the Directorate of Financial Stability, regulation and resolution, Bank of Spain

In 2020, big tech, digital money and climate change are reshaping financial markets. These disruptions are forcing regulators and supervisors across the globe to understand these phenomena and rethink their frameworks. They are reinventing regulatory processes and supervisory cycles.

A decade and more on from the global financial crisis, the work of central bankers and supervisors to strengthen systemic resilience is plain to see. Yet, new risks require new tools and central bankers increasingly recognise that if do not embrace innovation they can fail to fulfil their mandates and responsibilities as guardians of the financial system.

This course, ‘Financial Regulation and Supervision: Policy and Implementation’ is designed to equip delegates with the tools to meet these and other challenges facing experts in financial regulation and supervision.

Key sessions include:

  • Regtech & suptech: technological foundations in focus

  • Advanced data analytics for prudential supervision: new methods and techniques

  • Making the most of suptech in regulatory reporting and risk-based supervision

  • Cyber resilience of digitalized ecosystems: roles and responsibilities of regulators and supervisors

  • Resolution and re-organisation of failed financial institutions

  • Digital money: CBDCs, stablecoins and crypto assets – what regulators and supervisors need to know

Live content:

  • Live sessions for this course will take place in the week of 28th September to 2nd October

  • Timings and schedule released in July
