March 10-12, 2006 • Armonk, New York

The fourth annual Europe-U.S. Symposium was held at Citigroup’s Executive Planning Center in New York, during a period that marks the end of one chapter in EU-U.S. financial services relations and the beginning of another. Sharp differences in regulatory policy, often amounting to direct conflicts between policymakers and industry representatives, had characterized the early 2000s. The establishment of the informal EU-U.S. Financial Services Regulatory Dialogue (“the Dialogue”) provided a mechanism for constructive relations. The Dialogue allowed all interested parties to express their views around a table, debate policy approaches, understand the other side’s motivations, and ultimately agree on practical solutions that smoothed out regulatory differences without rejecting each party’s valid concerns.
