The Good Bank Debate Conference Program Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - New York University

We are delighted to invite you to attend our upcoming Good Bank Debate co-hosted with the New York University School of Law and Center for Financial Institutions. Over the past few months, WeiserMazars, along with Mazars Group and co-sponsors Credit Suisse and SAP, has actively promoted the Good Bank Initiative, an integrated program devised by The Economist Group with the goal of creating a model for an effective, trustworthy and innovative bank.

The world of banking is changing dramatically as a result of the ongoing global financial crisis and heightened regulatory pressures. The main question facing the industry is: what makes a good bank? This debate contributes to global thinking on what makes a socially engaged bank a successful business. Social engagement and profitability are key aspects. Regulation, risk tolerance and economic growth play interconnected roles.
